In what would be a major coup for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers the Daily Express claims that the Reds have been given the green light to sign Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Marco Reus after the North Rhine Westphalia club has lined up Davy Klaassen from Ajax as a replacement.
Just the other day, all the talk was of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, making a move for the German World Cup Winner, but if the British tabloid is correct Liverpool still appears to be in the driving seat.
So far the Merseyside club has been one of this summer’s biggest spenders in the hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season, already laying out a massive £80 in new players to give manager Brendan Rodgers a squad big enough to compete in all competitions, and should they land a player of the quality Reus possess it will go a long way in showing their Premier League rivals that they mean business.
The Bundesliga giants will not accept less than £46 million for the very versatile midfielder, so for Liverpool to complete the deal it will show massive support from the clubs owners in Boston who obviously believe in the Northern Irishman’s project at Anfield.
Interesting times on Merseyside!
