Liverpool could be set to rescue Marco Reus from his Barcelona and Manchester United disappointment by offering him a move to Merseyside this summer.
Reus was left aggravated by Luis Suarez's move to Barcelona last week because he believed he was en route to the Spanish giants.
But new boss Luis Enrique is thought to have preferred Suarez to the German international, leaving Reus in the lurch.
The 25-year-old had already spurned interest from United because he favoured a move to Barca.
But it seems that Liverpool are ready to offer the dazzling forward a way out of Borussia Dortmund.Reports suggest that Brendan Rodgers could launch a £44m bid for Reus that Dortmund will find difficult to resist.
The Reds desire to add more attacking firepower after losing Suarez is well-known having asked for Alexis Sanchez as part of the deal with Barcelona.
But after seeing Sanchez choose Arsenal instead, Liverpool have wasted no time in looking at alternatives.
The Reds appear close to finalising a move for Serbian youngster Lazar Markovic but have today also been linked with Arda Turan, Wilfried Bony and Romelu Lukaku.
