Forget Suarez: This reported Liverpool target can rule Europe

Luis who?

In a whirlwind summer of transfer activity at Liverpool, there have been a lot of differing reports in the media about this potential move. Stories surfaced earlier in the week that Liverpool were about to make a make a bid for the Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus.

Liverpool look to capitalise on Marco Reus’ Barcelona and Man Utd disappointment

….it seems that Liverpool are ready to offer the dazzling forward a way out of Borussia Dortmund.

But these suggestions were scoffed at, in a some areas of the media:

Liverpool are said to be baffled with reports linking them with a mega-money move for Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus.

Liverpool have spent lots of money on exciting young prospects so far this summer but they haven’t really come close to replacing their talisman Luis Suarez.

It is an impossible task but if Liverpool want to at least get close to doing so they could do a lot worse than to look at Marco Reus.

More of a wide man than Suarez but someone who is adaptable and can play in various different positions out wide or behind a number 9. Wherever you put him this guy is absolutely world-class. It’s just a shame that we didn’t see him at The World Cup. But, had he performed to his potential in Brazil, instead of getting injured just prior, we think that he’d have every top team in the world after him.

So The World Cup’s loss could end up being Liverpool’s gain.

Reus covers the ground beautifully, has two lovely feet and score loads of goals. He starts out wide but regularly drifts inside to devastating effect.

Reus is incredibly quick, but also very composed, and is one of those players that would immediately improve pretty much any first team in the world.

He’s scored 42 goals in just 90 games for Dortmund after moving from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012 (41 goals in 109 games). He’s also netted 7 times in just 21 games for Germany. At 25 this guy has the world at his feet.

It will be very interesting to see how Liverpool do continue to go about their business now the Suarez deal is in the bag.

Several medium-priced young signings with great potential have already been made. But we think that Liverpool could do with adding one stellar recruit who has already fulfilled his promise – someone who would immediately improve the first eleven.

And there are few better out there right now, in terms of potentially gettable targets, than Marco Reus.

Let’s have a look at him in action. Liverpool fans: should Brendan Rodgers make a bid?

    I think Reus will be the Perfect man to replace Suarez. Signings like those of Markovic and Rickie are all superb. But when you think of lining up Markovic, Sturridge and Reus, in the final third it makes you hunger for goals, goals and more goals. I think Rodgers won’t be wrong to bring in such a world class player. With 90 chances created last season for BRV, and with Reus grabbing 19 goals and assists in just 13 games after returning from injury in February, he will perfectly fit into Liverpool’s game plan, and the perfect replacement for Luis Suarez. Plus it wouldn’t be a bad deal to spend £45m, that is a little over the £75m received from the Suarez deal. The question is whether Liverpool will want to bid for him giving he’s also being linked to Man United. However Reus’ release clause is only due in a month’s time. Let’s wait and see how things unfold then. But if I were Brendan, I will be holding talks with Ayre on this one.

    Sorry, while I understand your praising Reus and while he would be a lovely player to have in any great club, please dp not get your hopes up. The British press is really ridiculous, “offering Reus a way out of Dortmund”. They cannot, as he has a contract, and Dortmund are not going to let him go as they do not need the money but need his quality. Like Mats Hummels, Marco Reus said clearly that he is happy in Dortmund and will not be leaving. This has been confirmed by the club, and this is what will happen – exactly nothing. Too much indecent money to throw around and too little responsibility to go with it, and attracting the kind of mercenary creature like Suarez, who deals with you as he would be dealt with by clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City, PSG… disgusting.
