Reus is destined to leave Dortmund in the near future after turning down the offer of a new contract with the Bundesliga giants – and refusing to change his mind.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be keener than ever to sign the Germany international, and the club have now been given fresh hope of landing his services after it emerged that Bayern Munich dropped out of the race.

“There have been no talks with Bayern” said Reus’ agent, Dirk Hebel, denying that a switch was in the pipeline.

Liverpool feel that they can bring the playmaker to Anfield by matching his £19.8m buyout clause that is set to come into play next summer, making his acquisition a bargain of the highest order.

Reus missed Germany’s World Cup win this summer through injury, and Dortmund fans will be relieved that another one of their star players will not be heading to Bayern, even if they must resign themselves to a future without him first.
