Four clubs are said to be pursuing a late summer bid for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, according to sources in Germany, with Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool among those interested.
The 25-year-old forward has been one of the most sought-after players in the transfer market for some time now after his highly impressive displays in the Bundesliga and for the German national team, and although Dortmund have been resolute in their efforts to keep him at the club, they may still be unable to fight off late intrerest in his signature from four European giants.
Big names such as Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have made their way to the Premier League this summer, with Angel Di Maria and Mario Balotelli looking set to follow, though Reus could prove to be one of the most exciting arrivals of all if he does end up at either Anfield or the Emirates Stadium.
Still, it remains to be seen where Reus will end up in this intriguing transfer battle, as one of the longest-running sagas of the summer could be nearing a conclusion.
Although Liverpool are known to be close to sealing a move to sign Mario Balotelli from AC Milan, Brendan Rodgers’ side have been keeping an eye on Reus all summer and would still jump at the chance to sign him if they could. With Luis Suarez’s departure leaving the Reds with much to do to replace his influence in attack, it could be that Reus and Balotelli will join Daniel Sturridge in forming an exciting new-look front-line for Rodgers’ side. The German international could fill in upfront if needed, but will also provide another option behind the main strikers and could link up well with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho, as well as fellow new signings Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic, giving Liverpool potentially one of the strongest attacks in European football.
