Andre Schurrle deal could hand Manchester United Marco Reus chance

Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool could make a move for Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus if the German outfit secure the signature of Chelsea ace Andre Schurrle in this January transfer window, according to the Express. 

The same report from the Express has suggested that Schurrle could seal a move to the Bundesliga outfit for around £27 million, which would ultimately help the Blues secure the signature of Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado. 


And, with reports in Germany suggesting that Dortmund see Schurrle as the ideal replacement for Reus, it appears that the playmaker could yet leave Germany behind this month.

There's no doubt about it, Reus is recognised as one of the leading attacking talents in world football, so would prove quite the coup for some of England's elite clubs. In fact, he has a buyout clause of £20m in his current deal, so wouldn't be too expensive for potential buyers. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the likes of Manchester United and Co. press ahead with a move for Reus, but it appears that any potential deal is more likely if Chelsea offload Schurrle to Dortmund  in the coming days. 

Who needs him? 

Manchester United, despite already possessing an array of attacking talent at the Theatre of Dreams, have struggled at times in the creative areas of the pitch throughout the season. 

The likes of Angel di Maria, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Co. are already operating in the attacking areas at the club, but Reus would no doubt offer them another dimension going forward.

Arsenal, much like United, have a number of top attacking stars plying their trade at the club, but Arsene Wenger may yet be hopeful of adding yet another German star to his squad. 

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, could do with improving his side after a tricky opening half of the campaign. The Merseyside outfit have struggled to replicate last season's success and are in danger of missing out on qualification for next year's Champions League.
