Liverpool are monitoring the situation of Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus, with reports from the Daily Star suggesting the German international’s talks over a new contract have stalled.

The Reds were strongly linked with a move for the 25-year-old during the summer, whilst Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United have also registered an interest.

Reus is reportedly unhappy with the transfer policy at Dortmund, having seen the likes of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski leave for Bayern Munich in recent seasons.

He will be available for a bargain price of £20million at the end of the season should he not sign a new deal, when a release clause in his current contract is set to be triggered.

Liverpool owner John W. Henry added to the speculation when he took to Twitter to declare his interest in the forward earlier this month, posting: ‘Oh and sign Reus!’

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke previously refused to rule out selling the star, but insists money will not be a key factor in his decision.

He said: “We will have to wait and see whether we can keep hold of Marco.

“All I can say is that I know him really well and it’s not about money with him.”
