Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus is, somewhat unsurprisingly, attracting interest from both home and abroad - something that has been acknowledged by Michael Zorc, the sporting director of his current employers.
Reus has been linked with Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester United, Real Madrid and, of course, Bayern Munich and would appear set to leave Dortmund next summer when a release clause in his contract becomes active.
The 25-year-old can be purchased for only £19.8 million in the 2015 transfer window, which is a rather attractive price for a player of his quality. Given that Bayern have, for two summers in succession, recruited BVB’s best player they will surely be in contention for Reus. But, says Zorc, they won’t be the only ones.
“Well, there are also beyond this country's borders other clubs for which Marco is interesting,” Zorc told Die Welt when pressed specifically on Bayern’s interest.
Zorc does, though, remain optimistic that BVB, the club Reus supported as a boy, will be able to convince their prized asset to commit his future, and negotiations continue with representatives of the Germany international.

As far as Premier League interest goes, Arsenal were credited with interest in the recently closed transfer window, with Arsene Wenger reported to have been keen to recruit the player before moving for Alexis Sanchez.
Manchester United, meanwhile, are supposedly considering making their own move for Reus in January as Louis van Gaal bids to bring further reinforcements to Old Trafford, despite having already spent £150 million on new acquisitions.
