Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly joined Bayern Munich in the race for Borussia Monchengladbach star Florian Neuhaus.
Bayern have been heavily linked with a move for the 23-year-old who has an exit clause in his contract. The midfielder has also attracted attention from a number of top European clubs.
According to a report from Sport1, Dortmund, Tottenham, and Real Madrid are willing to rival Bayern for the up-and-coming midfielder.
The report also claims that Neuhaus has an exit clause in the region of €40m (£35.5m) that will come into effect in the next summer transfer window.

The ‘Gladbach star is just four appearances shy of reaching a century with Marco Rose’s side, and has earned three caps for Germany ahead of Euro 2021.
Neuhaus is enjoying an excellent season in the Bundesliga, scoring five goals and providing six assists so far.
He is contracted to ‘Gladbach until 2024, so the club are not in any rush to sell one of their top performing players.
But can any side afford his fees?
All the clubs interested in Neuhaus have been hit hard due to the coronavirus pandemic, and affording Neuhaus’ fee could pose a certain difficulty.
However, according to Sport BILD (h/t Tz), there is a possibility that Hansi Flick’s side could sell Corentin Tolisso to fund a move for the ‘Gladbach midfielder.
Earlier this month, Sky reporter Marc Behrenbeck claimed that initial talks have already taken place between Neuhaus and Bayern over a potential move.
He also stated that the player has admitted he wants to take the next step in his career.
Behrenbeck stated: “According to our information, there was contact, but no concrete negotiations between the parties yet. However, the interest was deposited several times.”
