Liverpool’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus has come under threat from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Mirror.

Reports over the past couple of weeks had suggested the Reds were the favourites to land the 25-year-old in the summer, with a contract offer that would see him become the clubs highest paid player of all time.

But it now appears Bayern Munich have entered the race for the player, who continues to stall on a new contract at the Westfalenstadion.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Sport 1: “If a German international has an exit clause and his contract is running out, Bayern is obliged to think about him

“There are many great clubs from other countries who would be interested in signing Marco Reus but the player will decide what he wants.”

Pep Guardiola’s side will be considered the biggest threat to any potential deal for Liverpool, especially given the fact they have lured Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandwski from Dortmund to Munich in consecutive seasons.
