It is interesting not just because of the profile of the player but also because of his consistent injuries. The Borussia Dortmund star is currently injured and is only expected to be back in action next year.
Reus is highly rated in his native land and in the international circles, but he has been hampered by injuries throughout his career. It has always been a start-stop career for the winger who has failed to live up to his potential because of these problems.
One advantage Liverpool have is the presence of Jurgen Klopp in the dug-out. The German tactician has managed Reus at Borussia Dortmund and is widely believed to have extracted the best out of him.
The Reds have been long-term admirers of the winger and could have bid for his services had the player not been injured in the summer. Reus is currently sidelined after tearing his cruciate ligament during the German Cup final in May when Dortmund defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1.
Liverpool though, will not have it easy in the pursuit as Inter Milan are expected to rival the Reds for his signature. The San Siro giants are striving hard to get back their glory days after the recent infusion of money. They were silent in the summer transfer window but expect them to make some noise in the coming transfer windows.
So, how feasible is the transfer? Reus needs to get back into action and prove that he has regained full fitness. The biggest challenge for him is to stay injury-free until next summer. Looking at his track record, it won’t be a surprise if he gets injured again.
However, there is no doubt that Reus is a quality player when in full flow. The success that Klopp engineered at Dortmund was largely due to the way he managed Reus, Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski.
Let’s keep an eye on the Dortmund treatment table, shall we?
