Tottenham target Borussia Dortmund forward

Tottenham Hotspur are planning an audacious offer for Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus, according to the Daily Mirror.

The player’s contract situation currently remains unresolved with the German attacker set to seek clarity over the Bundesliga’s club ambitions for the future.

With talks over a new deal currently at a standstill, Spurs are set to make an offer for Reus in the summer.

Contract talks on hold

At the end of the season, Reus will have just one-year remaining on his current contract and Dortmund are hopeful of tying him down to a new one.

The winger is currently unsure over the club’s ambitions, with Dortmund this season yet again set to miss out on the German title to Bayern Munich and having been eliminated in the group stages of the Champions League.

In recent years, Reus has been plagued with injuries and so far this season he has made just five appearances in all competitions.

Tottenham lining up bid

Tottenham are set to rival Liverpool for the signing of the player, with the Reds having been scouting Reus for a number of years now.

With Spurs set to move into their new stadium next season, the club are looking to make another statement by making a marquee addition in this summer’s transfer window.

A move for the German international could be funded by the sale of Toby Alderwerield, who like Reus, has one-year left and is yet to agree to new terms.

Tottenham could, therefore, look to cash in on the Belgian central-defender in the summer with a number of Europe’s elite willing to make a large offer for the 28-year-old.
