Liverpool have been given a boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, after Bayern Munich pulled out of the race for his signature, according to the Metro.

Bayern had been linked with a move for the German international, along with Premier League giants Manchester United and Arsenal.

However Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is quietly confident of landing the 25-year-old, as the club steps up it’s pursuit of a replacement for Luis Suarez.

And the Liverpool boss was given a boost by the news Bayern had officially ruled themselves out of the running for his signature.

Dirk Hebel, Reus’ agent, told Bild that ‘there have been no talks with Bayern’ and denied that a switch was possible this summer.

That has opened the door for Liverpool, with Rodgers confident he can land the player by meeting a release clause that comes into effect next summer, for a bargain price of £19.8million.

Liverpool are set to take on Borussia Dortmund in their final pre-season friendly, at Anfield today.
