Tottenham are set to table a bid bid for Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Marco Reus, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim that Spurs are ready to take advantage over the uncertainty of the future of the Germany international by making a formal move in an attempt to make him a marquee summer signing.
It is said that Liverpool are also interested in Reus, 28, who has returned to form after being hit by a series of injuries that had derailed his career.
This comes after the Mirror reported that Reus has refused to commit to a new Dortmund contract to replace his current deal, which expires in the summer.
He scored Dortmund’s only goal in their 1-1 draw with Augsburg on Thursday night, which was his second goal in consecutive league matches.
Football Insider verdict:
Reus has been hit badly by injury, including a ruptured cruciate ligament that wiped out most of this season. But he is a brilliant player who could be a devastating option for Spurs. He possesses explosive speed and a 6ft frame that enables him to withstand challenges as well as the trickery and clinical touch that makes him one of Germany’s most exciting talents. His track record for Dortmund demands attention, with 194 matches yielding 91 goals and 64 assists. There is likely to be plenty of demand for him, and it is easy to see why.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club have agreed terms to sign up a midfielder in a deal which Daniel Levy shook hands on two months ago.
