Liverpool ready £46m bid for German star as Anfield side identify ideal Raheem Sterling replacement

Anfield outfit chase Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.

Liverpool are reportedly ready to launch a massive £46m move for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus according to the Metro.

The 26-year-old has been identified as a possible Anfield target with Brendan Rodgers looking to replace Man City bound Raheem Sterling.

The German international saw his Westfalenstadion side fail to secure a Champions League berth for 2015/16 and Reus has seen Jurgen Klopp leave the club, heightening talk of a possible summer exit.

Man City will pay Liverpool £49m for Sterling, a sum that the Merseyside outfit are ready to re-invest, though it’s worth noting that Brendan Rodgers has already spent a fair bit on new additions this summer.

Though James Milner and Adam Bogdan cost the club nothing third free agent Danny Ings will set Liverpool back a sum set by a transfer tribunal whilst moves to sign Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne run to a combined total of around £35m.

Reus has netted 36 goals and provided 27 assists in 82 Bundesliga appearances since his move from Borussia Monchengladbach to Dortmund three years ago.
