Think hes a bit higher than 'quality'. Dortmund haven't won a game when he hasn't played. His agility and passing abillities is extraordinary, their play is more frigid and raw when hes not on the pitch. Adds an entirely different dimension to them. Without him, its just Kehl and Bender doing interceptions and tackles, without the killer ball.
Not sure where I'd place him in the best players they have though. Would rank Lewandowski higher for sure. Reus, sure he scores, but that is off Gundogan's play. Hummels and Subotic are also fantastic players. So maybe 2nd.
