Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City target, Marco Reus, has refused to rule out a move to the Premier League, but insists he is committed to helping Borussia Dortmund in their quest for silverware this season, reports Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to England, despite being tied down to a long-term contract with the reigning Bundesliga champions.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in bringing Reus to Old Trafford, while Roberto Mancini is also believed to be monitoring the German international's situation.

And now, recent speculation has suggested that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is making plans to lure Reus to Stamford Bridge in the summer, even though the player has made clear his belief he can fulfil his ambitions at the Westfalenstadion.

"Chelsea, too?" he is quoted in The Guardian. "Really? But the press is often wrong so why worry about it?

"You should never say never. But I have a valid [five-year] contract with a team I love.

"We have plans to win trophies here. I also love the city because everyone is so passionate about football."

Reus was speaking ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League quarter-final first leg clash with Malaga in Spain on Wednesday evening, where he reiterated his belief that his team has what it takes to win the competition.

"Yes, of course we could win it," he added. "I believe we can do it because we have done well to come this far. Malaga are next and at this stage of the Champions League you have the ability to win it."
