One of the hottset properties in football, Borussia Dortmund’s 26 year old German star winger Marco Reus is happy to stay at Signal Iduna Park but “Flattered” with interest from Premier League according to Sky Sports.

The superstar has been linked with Premier League giants including Arsenal and Liverpool throughout the transfer window.

Spanish giants Real Madrid were also interested in the popular footballer but Tuttomercatoweb reported that Arsenal were frontrunners to sign him.

The agency representing Reus Sport Total stated that they were flattered with interests from European powerhouses but Reus is happy to stay at Borussia Dortmund.

Marco Reus signed a new deal with struggling Borussia Dortmund back in February to stay at the club until 2019.

“We read the rumours that are circulating about an alleged transfer for Marco,” the agency said in a statement released to

“We can say with certainty that the player is having a wonderful time at Dortmund. He is flattered by the interest of many European teams, but he’s recently decided to stay in Dortmund.”

New Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel,who replaced Jurgen Klopp after his seven year spell at the club,will be happy with the news that his best player will be staying at Signal Iduna Park.

Borussia did not have an impressive last season finishing seventh in the Bundesliga. Reus was absent for the major part of the season due to his successive injuries and the team suffered from his absence. Reus only appeared 20 times last season for Dortmund in Bundesliga and scored 7 goals providing 5 assists.

The news will be a major blow for Real Madrid, Liverpool and Arsenal as they now have to look elsewhere.
