Premier League target Marco Reus stretchered off with yet another ankle injury

Marco Reus

Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus has injured his ankle yet again.

Borussia Dortmund playmaker Marco Reus is perhaps one of Europe's most wanted players. The 25-year-old has been linked with moves to Bayern Munich, Barcelona and a plethora of Premier League talent in recent times.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all believed to be keen on the player, who is believed to be available at a release clause of just €25 million.

That type of money for Liverpool, United or Chelsea is certainly available if it means Reus arriving.

However, while there is plenty of reason to sign him there is also one reason to not sign him. He seems to pick up ankle injuries more that most.

He only recently returned from ankle trouble after missing the World Cup with a ligament tear to the afflicted joint. So he certainly has something like chocolate ankles.

He scored today against SC Paderborn in the Bundesliga, but things went wrong for him in the second half. He nipped the ball away from Paderborn midfielder Marvin Bakalorz but got caught on his ankle, visibly causing an affect on the ankle of Reus.

Reus was in agony and was stretchered from the field of play. It looks bad for the German international - it certainly does not look like he will be passing any medicals in January.

No move for Liverpool, United or Chelsea just yet then.

To add insult to injury, Paderborn scored twice in the second half and Dortmund dropped another two points as their woeful Bundesliga campaign continues.
