Marco Reus is committed and comfortable to Borussia Dortmund, according to the club's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, reports

The German star has seen his stock rise as he put in some impressive displays during his side's Champions League campaign, which saw them lose in the final to rivals Bayern Munich.

Reus has been in scintillating form for Dortmund scoring four goals in seven league games, and struck again last night with a goal and an assist against Marseille in the Champions League.

The German club were stunned when Mario Gotze swapped Dortmund for Bayern in the summer, and their star striker Robert Lewandoski is almost certainly set to join them when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Despite the much-publicised switch over their former starts, Watzke insists Reus is comfortable and will continue to be committed to Dortmund.

"Marco just feels very comfortable with us," he told German newspaper BILD. "We feel very comfortable with him. He has an even closer relationship with the club and the city than did Mario Gotze.

"Marco was born here, his family lives here, and the centre of his life has always been here. This is certainly a criteria in his decision.

"He knows that BVB is a good choice for him. I am sure of that."

The 24-year-old, who has 17 caps for Germany, graduated through the Dortmund academy but also spent time at Rot Weiss Ahlen and Borussia Monchengladbach.

There has been speculation linking the winger with a move to Premier League leaders Arsenal.
