Marco Reus gives Liverpool renewed hope of signing him
A deal for Reus could still be struck this summer after the Germany international rejected a new contract with current club Borussia Dortmund, reports the Mirror.
The 25-year-old is contracted at the Signal Iduna Park until 2017, but the Bundesliga club could be convinced to sell due to a release clause in the attacker’s contract.
In 2015 Reus’ buyout fee drops to £27m and therefore Dortmund are likely to accept any offer in excess of that price this time around.
