Liverpool have been given a boost in their pursuit of Marco Reus, with the player’s agent denying talks over a proposed move to Bayern Munich, reports the Express.
The Bundesliga champions were seen as the heavy favourites to land the 25-year-old not so long ago, but now it looks as if a club from the Premier League is the most likely to win the race for his signature.
Liverpool still face competition for his signature from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United, although Jose Mourinho said only last week he will not be making a move for the Dortmund star.
That increased speculation Reus had already begun negotiations over a lucrative contract at Bayern Munich, but the Reds have been boosted by words from the players agent.
Speaking to Kicker, Dirk Hebel said: “There are no negotiations between Marco and Bayern.
“There has never been any contact.”
