The Reds meanwhile have a giant Luis Suarez shaped hole in their attack following the Uruguayan’s £75m switch to Barcelona.
So far manager Brendan Rodgers has been busy in the transfer market, but none of the seven new arrivals at Anfield will be able to fill the boots of Suarez just yet.
In fact that is a very difficult task, but of all the players in world football not many come as close as Reus would, with the forward having developed into a better goalscoring threat in recent times.
Last term the German netted 23 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions and could easily slot in as part of a three man attack for the Merseysiders alongside Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge.
This would probably see either new £25m signing Adam Lallana or Philippe Coutinho dropping to the bench, although with the club returning to the Champions League this season more of a rotation policy that sees everyone getting a chance is likely to be adopted in any case.
In conclusion, if Rodgers managed to sign Reus it would be the best thing the Northern Irishman could do to cushion the blow of losing Suarez.
