Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund)
Marco Reus is a club colleague of Gundogan’s, and the same thoughts largely apply to him, but there are a few twists with the Times signalling that a swap deal with Shinji Kagawa could be on the cards.
Kagawa has voiced his frustration at his lack of minutes in his preferred central attacking midfield position, and Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp too has described his frustration at seeing him on the left wing.
Marco Reus is a more natural fit for that position, though he too may prefer to play as a second striker who can drift into the channels.
Reus’ seven goals and five assists in eleven Bundesliga starts are a brilliant return, and the swap deal could be one that works for all parties concerned.
