Liverpool and Manchester United target Marco Reus could be available for as little as £25 million this summer, according to the Mirror.

The German ace is one of the most coveted players in Europe, and since joining Borussia Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012 has helped his side win the Bundesliga and reach the Champions League final last year.

Speculation

There's been plenty of speculation over his future in recent weeks, with Manchester United and Liverpool believed to be vying for his signature. However Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp moved yesterday to dismiss rumours surrounding the 25-year-old and his team-mate Mats Hummels, who has also been linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

"I can assure everyone there are no indications that Mats or Marco want to leave," he said yesterday. "They will be playing for us in the new season.”

Contract

That has not stopped speculation over their future however, and today the Mirror say that Reus could be available for as little as £25 million - a surprisingly low fee for a player of his ability and profile.

He has less than two years to run on his contract at the Westfalenstadion, and has a £28 million release clause which becomes active next year. 

Target

Reus is just one of many players being targeted by both Liverpool and Manchester United this summer as they look to bolster their respective squads. Liverpool have already signed Emre Can, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic, with plenty more to follow.

They pocketed around £75 million from the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will re-invest that money back into his squad in order to consolidate their position as one of the top clubs in the Premier League.

New faces

Loic Remy should arrive at Anfield shortly, while Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi could follow soon after. Overall the Mirror claim that Liverpool's spending this summer could top £150 million.

Manchester United's own splurge could top that, with around £60 million spent so far on Ander Herrera - who shone in the 7-0 victory over LA Galaxay last night, the first game under Louis van Gaal - and Luke Shaw.

Hummels and Reus have both been linked with a move to Old Trafford, along with the likes of Arturo Vidal and Angel di Maria. Deals for the former pair seem unlikely, but Van Gaal should be able to bring in some fresh blood before the start of the new campaign.
