Manchester United manager David Moyes are hoping to sign Borussia Dortmund's winger Marco Reus, reports the Times.
According to the Times, Moyes is keen to strengthen his squad and has identified Reus as the man, who will solve his problems.
The Scot had even sent assistant manager Steve Round and coach Jimmy Lumsden to scout Reus, when BVB played against Napoli on Tuesday.
At this match, Reus scored a penalty and set up another and again was one of BVB star performers.
Since the start of the season, Reus has scored 11 times and has set up 10 more in a total of 21 matches.
Reus has been on the wish-list of many top teams and United will face a lot of competition for the German international's signature.
Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Real Madrid are all keeping tabs on Reus, but the 24-year-old has insisted he is no rush of going anywhere.
The report also adds it will be difficult for Man Utd to sign him - maybe because of the high price, or because they don't seem to be the big draw they used to be in the transfer market.
Currently Reus is worth around £40 million, but Borussia have no intention of selling him. His buy-out clause will come into effect in the summer of 2015.
Maybe one day Reus will move, but where will he go?
