All three Premier League sides have been linked with moves for the Germany international since the summer, but both Barcelona and Real Madrid are expected to be favourite to land his signature.
And despite reports last week suggesting Chelsea have already held in-depth talks with the 25-year-old, German newspaper Bild hint he is ready to move to Spain, revealing Reus has started Spanish lessons.
He is being tipped to leave Dortmund at the end of the season, though more ambitious clubs will still hope to be able to land his signature in the new year.
Fellow Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are also keen, but Dortmund will likely look to avoid selling to them after the circumstances that brought Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski have damaged relations between the two sides.
