Ask any neutral Premier League fan which player they’d most like to see in England and Marco Reus’ name is likely to crop up quite a bit.
And, according to emerging reports on Friday, that could become a reality this summer.
Spurs are reportedly ready to pounce for the Borussia Dortmund star as the uncertainty over his future mounts.
The German attacker has just over a year left on his current contract.
He is reluctant to pen a new one with the Bundesliga side, at least until he sees the strength of their summer recruitment.
And The Mirror claim his stalling has spiked Spurs’ interest.
Mauricio Pochettino knows that he will face strong competition for the 28-year old.
Liverpool have been linked with an interest in the ace for several months.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp knows the player well from their time working together at Dortmund.
And he hopes that relationship would swing the pendulum in the Kop’s favour should Reus decide to depart.
Despite rumours circulating over his future, the Germany international is still producing the goods on the pitch following his return after a lengthy injury lay-off.
Reid made his first appearance of the season last month in the 2-0 win over Hamburg.
And now he appears to be rediscovering his top form after his fine strike in the 1-1 draw with Augsburg on Tuesday.
But his goal celebration had many Liverpool fans believing that he was on his way to Merseyside.
The kung-fu kick he produced after hitting the net was remarkably reminiscent of that made famous by Reds striker Roberto Firmino.
And Liverpool supporters were quick to spot the similarities as they took it to be a huge hint he was heading for a reunion with Klopp.
Reus will be hoping to find the target again when he and his team-mates travel to RB Leipzig for a crunch top four showdown tomorrow.
