Football News

Real Madrid have moved ahead of Liverpool in the race to secure the services of talented Borussia Dortmund playmaker Marco Reus. 

This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, citing bein Sports, who claim that the Reds were set to make a club-record bid of £46 million for the tricky German. 

Reus, of course, is recognised as one of the leading players in the Bundesliga, having played a key role in Dortmund's success on the European scene over the last few years.

It appears, then, after seeing Raheem Sterling depart Anfield in favour of a move to rivals Manchester City for £49m, the Liverpool hierarchy were ready to splash the cash on bringing Reus to the club. 

It appears, though, that they are now behind Spanish giants Real Madrid, who are seemingly in pursuit of the playmaker. 

Huge interest 

In fact, the Liverpool Echo go on to report that numerous clubs are interested in the forward, with the quartet of Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal all seemingly monitoring the player's situation. 

It's far from certain, of course, as to whether Reus will move on before the close of the transfer window, but Real Madrid may well take some stopping if they are serious about bringing him to the Bernabeu in the immediate future. 

Reus a dream for Liverpool 

Let's be honest, the signature of Reus in this transfer window would have been a dream signing for Reds fans. Ultimately, the German star, at 26-years of age, is the world-class names the club's faithful have been desperate to see arrive since the departure of Luis Suarez last summer.

In truth, though, with Champions League football at Anfield next term, it was always going to be tricky to persuade the likes of Reus move to the club ahead of the new season. 

But Firmino will be great 

But, the Reds faithful have reason to be optimistic ahead of the 2015/16 season. In Roberto Firmino, Liverpool have one of the most exciting young players in world football right now, and he can go on to achieve great things in England's elite division. 

At just 23, he already possesses a great deal when on the attack - with brilliant creativity and an eye for goal, Liverpool fans will be desperate to see him star in the same side as the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.
