Appointing Klopp over other candidate may cost Liverpool Reus move

Veteran Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti is determined to make Marco Reus one of his signings at his next club, which may come as a blow for Liverpool as they moved for Jurgen Klopp, not the ex-Chelsea tactician.

Don Balon claim that the former Blues chief, who is currently out of work after leaving Real Madrid over the summer, is a big fan of the Germany international, whom he sees as a player that could become integral to his next side.

Liverpool fans have often called for the club to move for Reus as they bid to break back into the top four.

Reports prior to Klopp’s arrival at the club suggested that Ancelotti was a candidate to replace Brendan Rodgers, so in a bizarre twist of fate their decision to appoint the 48-year-old, who managed the attacker at Dortmund, could cost them a move.

Of course there’s bulk to claims that Reus may opt against joining Liverpool due to their lack of Champions League football, but having the former AC Milan chief determined to sign him and likely to join a top European club could make the potential task near impossible.
