Borussia Dortmund play-maker, Marco Reus has once again succumbed to another ankle injury. The German went down in a heap during Dortmund’s 2-2 draw with Paderborn.

It has been revealed by BBC Sport that the Premier League transfer target has suffered ankle ligament damage in his right foot. Reus has suffered similar injuries before, one that kept him out of the Brazil 2014 World Cup this summer.

However, ever the optimist, Reus was remaining positive and used Twitter to thank fans for their support of the 25-year-old, “I’ll be back again! Thanks for all your lovely messages wishing me to get better soon.” Meanwhile, Dortmund chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke said: “How much bad luck can you have?”

Dortmund who finished runners up in the Bundesliga last season have endured a torrid season thus far with just 3 wins in 12 matches, leaving them third from bottom. However, in stark comparison, their Champions League form has seen them on scintillating form and looking their best. With Reus now out until January, boss Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can rally round and push on despite losing their key player.

Reus, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the new year has now but doubts in the mind of potential suitors after sustaining another ankle injury. Prone to being sidelined, will Premier League clubs take the risk of paying big money on a player only to see him in the physio room?
