Liverpool and Manchester United are primed to swoop after it was revealed that Borussia Dortmund are willing to sell forward Marco Reus.
The two Premier League sides have been among the frontrunners to sign Reus, who has a release clause written into his contract that activates during the summer.
That clause would allow him to leave Signal Iduna Park next summer for only £19.7 million, far below his true value.
As a result, Dortmund are now willing to sell the talented German international, who has been regularly injured since the start of the season, according to the Daily Star.
He is currently unavailable after suffering yet another setback to his fitness.
Both Man Utd and Liverpool are known to be keen on signing one of Europe’s best attacking players, but they will likely face competition from the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid if they want to sign him.
With neither English side able to offer Champions League football, that competition may prove to be too much.
