Marco Reus stalls on new deal, Manchester, Liverpool, Arsenal circling

Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus has been linked with a move to the Premier League and La Liga all summer long.

The German international has so far stayed quiet and remained at Dortmund but with the 25-year-old stalling on a new contract at the Westfalenstadion, PL clubs are queuing up to get him on board.

Reports from the Daily Express state that Reus will wait until the end of the season and weigh up his options as that is when a clause clicks in on his current deal. Apparently Reus can leave for a cut-price $30 million at the end of the 2014-15 season and Europe’s top clubs are lining up bids for the man who can play up front or across the midfield.

Dortmund are desperate to tie Reus down to a new deal and remove the clause which will see him leave for a much lower price than he’s worth. However Reus, who missed out on the 2014 World Cup through an injury the week before the tournament began, is keen to see what’s out there after seeing both Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski join Bayern Munich in recent seasons after similar clauses were triggered in their contracts.

Reus is currently out injured once again after he took a blow on his troublesome left ankle during Germany’s recent European Championship qualifier against Scotland. He is expected back in action soon and scouts from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United will be keeping a close eye on him. All three teams seem to be stacked with attacking options but when an talent such as Reus comes on the market for just $30 million, you have to try and snap him up. The only issue if he joins the PL is his physicality, as the forward can glide past defenders with ease but you wonder if he can mix it in the rough and tumble of England’s top-flight.

Depending on how next summer pans out, we may get to find out if Reus can handle the Premier League.
