As one of the most commonly recognized names in European football, the injuries Marco Reus has suffered have been significant. It’s blighted what was one of the most promising careers in the German national side, and it’s forced Reus to miss out on World Cup action and European Championships action beforehand.
A Dortmund buy and a lifelong supporter of the Black and Yellows, the 28-year-old is back from another serious injury and has returned to fitness and form quicker than expected. However, with his contract ending in June 2019, BVB officials are scampering to try and tie him down to a new deal.
The Daily Mirror, though, report that Tottenham Hotspur have earmarked him as one of their top transfer targets. Despite heavy links to a resurrection of his relationship with Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool, the Mirror report claims that Spurs are desperate to land the BVB forward.
Should Reus not sign a new deal at Dortmund, then his exit could come sooner than expected. Reports in Germany say that he wants to hear what BVB have planned in terms of transfer targets and coaching selection, should Peter Stoger move on at the end of the season.
While Reus fought hard to return to his boyhood club, a frustrating spell at the Black and Yellows could see him take one last opportunity to move abroad and try his hand in a foreign league. If that’s the case, expect major English interest in his services.
