Speculation around the future of German international Marco Reus has been rumbling on for months, now The Metro believe that Liverpool are favourites to land his signature. The Daily Express understand Arsenal and Manchester United are also interested in Reus.

Marco Reus has been in contract talks with his current employers Borussia Dortmund for a few months now but it appears that the 25-year-old’s mind is made as negotiations have broken down. The attacking midfielder is tempted by a January switch as Dortmund’s Bundesliga form has seen them fall far away from a Bayern Munich title challenge.

Reus played for the Borussia Dortmund youth academy between 1996-2006 but then moved on to Rot Weiss Ahlen, playing 44 league games for the club and earning him a move to Borussia Mönchengladbach in May 2009. At Gladbach he established himself as one of Germany’s most talented attacking midfield players, appearing in 99 league matches, scoring 37 goals.

Reds joined Borussia Dortmund in January 2012 for €17.1m. He has become vital in Dortmund’s Bundesliga prospects and is nearing 100 appearances in all competitions for the club with a contract running till July 2017. However, with Dortmund fearing he may make the switch to Bayern Munich like Mario Götze and Robert Lewandoski, they may be willing to sell sooner than later.

Reus has 23 Germany caps and 7 goals but missed the summer World Cup in Brazil because of injury. Now he has return but is ready to make the move away from Germany with Premier League clubs Liverpool leading the race. It is understood Reus wants around £180,000-per-week wages, the transfer fee being kept to £32m because of a clause in his contract.
