Liverpool, Man United & Arsenal target scraps speculation

Marco Reus has moved to distance himself from a move away from Dortmund amid links with clubs such as Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Germany international – who missed out on his nation’s World Cup victory due to injury – is currently one of the most sought after players in Europe amid talk that he may be leaving BVB in 2015.

A release clause in his contract of around £18m is set to kick into gear at the end of the campaign, which Dortmund are desperate to remove due to his market worth being almost double that figure.

But with the 25-year-old having already rejected one offer from the Bundesliga club, speculation has suggested that bids of £25m-£30m may be accepted in January.

Liverpool, Arsenal and United are all thought to be desperate to land the versatile attacker, but Reus himself has said that he is not thinking about a move:

“Right now there is a lot of talk about my future,” he is quoted by Sky Sports.

“There is a lot of speculation and a lot being written, which is why I just wanted to tell you that at the moment other people seem to be giving are more consideration to my future than I am.”

Bayern Munich also want Reus and are rumoured to be confident of luring him to the Allianz Arena after snapping up his former team-mate Robert Lewandowski in a controversial free move over the summer.
