Premier League champions Manchester United are eyeing up an ambitious swap deal involving unsettled midfield player Shinji Kagawa and coveted Borussia Dortmund wide man Marco Reus for when the winter transfer window opens again for business at the turn of the year, according to reports in The Times.

The Red Devils are keen to strengthen in the attacking areas of their team in the new year, with new head coach David Moyes having identified Dortmund’s young Germany international as being the ideal player to bring to Old Trafford.

Reus, 24, has enjoyed almost two years of success with Jurgen Klopp’s eye-catching outfit ever since the forward moved to the Bundesliga giants from Borussia Monchengladbach in January 2012 on a five-year deal for a fee of 17.1 million euros.

In fact, in his first season-and-a-half at Dortmund, Reus managed to score an impressive 29 goals in total in only 64 matches in all competitions for Dortmund, including 21 strikes in just 44 league outings for the club.

And it is those kind of eye-catching attacking numbers that Moyes is keen to see at the Theatre of Dreams in the second half of this campaign, with the Scot hoping to be able to persuade Klopp to part company with his star man by offering the German former playmaker Kagawa in part exchange.
