Liverpool have begun talks over the transfer of Borussia Dortmund star midfielder Marco Reus, according to reports.
Despite wrapping up a £32.5m on Wednesday, Metro reports the Reds are still in for another big money signing this summer, and the German international has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield.
Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Tancredi Palmeri took to Twitter to announce the Reds have made contact in regards to a deal, but no offer had yet been made.
Liverpool’s contacts with Reus are true. Still no bid. Reus apparently more keen of Real Madrid,but Liverpool been working intensely on that

Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the 26-year-old, however it seems Liverpool have not yet given up its fight for the former Borussia Monchengladbach man.
According to Metro’s report, Liverpool would have to cough up a transfer fee of £47.8m to begin doing business with Borussia Dortmund.
