Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus will not be leaving the Bundesliga in January, according to the club's general manager Hans-Joachin Watzke.

It appears, though, that the German World Cup winner - who has been rated at €25 million - could still be on the move next summer, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in his services.

In fact, as reported by the Express, as many as five of England's elite clubs appear to be monitoring the Borussia Dortmund man, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City seemingly interested. 

However, Watzke has insisted that Reus - who scored in Dortmund's 2-1 defeat to rivals Bayer Munich this past weekend - is going nowhere for the time being.

Dortmund's general manager told reporters: "If Reus had to make a decision on his future will know us first and then the media.

"In any case, rest assured that Reus will not move from here in January, I'm 105 percent sure."

Without a doubt, Reus is enduring a tricky season at Dortmund, with the Bundesliga outfit struggling to replicate previous form. In fact, Jurgen Klopp's side are currently join bottom in Germany's elite division after suffering their fifth defeat in a row. 

Who needs him? 

There's no doubt about it, Reus would improve near enough all Premier League squads, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of them will step up their interest in him anytime soon. 

Manchester United already have an array of attacking talent at their club, so it may prove tricky for Reus to find a place at Old Trafford. The likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, meanwhile, may want to increase their options as they go in search of success. 

City - much like their Manchester rivals - have some world-class attacking stars at their disposal, whilst Liverpool could do with improving their squad after a poor start to the season under Brendan Rodgers.
