Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hinted that his club will make a move for German sensation Marco Reus next summer, the Mirror reports.

Reus currently plies his trade for Borussia Dortmund, but rumours of a relatively inexpensive release clause has alerted the attention of a number of European giants, including Premier League side Liverpool.

However, if Bayern are serious in their interest, the Reds will do extremely well to pry him from the Bundesliga.

“If a German international has an exit clause and his contract is running out, Bayern is obliged to think about him,” Rummenigge told Sport 1.

“There are many great clubs from other countries who would be interested in signing Marco Reus but the player will decide what he wants.”

Bayern have a habit of poaching Dortmund’s best players, having signed Mario Gotze and Roberto Lewandowski in the past two summer transfer windows.

As a result, the gulf between the two has grown, with many claiming the Bundesliga now lacks excitement because of Bayern’s unrivalled domination.

Liverpool were largely linked with Reus in the summer following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, but failed to bring in a truly marquee replacement, with Mario Balotelli so far failing to bag a Premier League goal.
