LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp is set to return to his former club Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
But Reds fans needn’t be concerned.
Their manager will hope to return to Anfield with the signature of star attacking midfielder Marco Reus – and Adam Lallana may be sold in order to finance the move.
Dortmund star Reus was signed by Klopp for the Bundesliga giants in 2012 and was a firm favourite during his tenure at the Westfalenstadion.
And those connections undoubtedly give Liverpool an edge over other Premier League clubs interested in the German international.
Indeed, Reus had been linked with the Reds long before Klopp even arrived on Merseyside and he made it clear back in October that he would be keen to join up again with his compatriot.
Klopp himself certainly made no effort to play down the speculation, recently saying Liverpool is now “more interesting” to Bundesliga stars.
The Reds boss told Bleacher: “I don’t believe anybody needs to fear us, but it’s a fact that through me Liverpool have become more interesting for German players.
“If our interest matches with that of the player, we won’t back away from signing him just because he’s German – that would be nonsense – but we are not limited to the Bundesliga.
“We are looking globally, but more important than where a player is from is that he’s the right player for us.”
Will Reus be reunited with Klopp at Liverpool?
