Marco Reus would consider joining one of “four or five international clubs” at the end of his current Borussia Dortmund contract.

Reus has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham rumoured to be interested in the forward over the past couple of years.

The 28-year-old is currently on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury in the DFB Pokal final in May.

But his contract with Dortmund is set to expire in 2019, at which point the German international would consider his future.

“There are four or five international clubs who interest me,” he told GQ. “On May 31, 2019, I will turn 30. That would be my last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different.

“I have to be honest and fair and say I don’t know where I’ll end up. At the moment, I’m very happy in Dortmund and not thinking about what happens after 2019.

“But of course, the time will come and then I will sit down and calmly make a decision.”

Reus also discussed his perennial struggles with injury.

“The tears came again two or three days later when I went through it again in my mind,” he said of his most recent setback.

“To be alone, working your way back is the most demanding part. I was really fed up after three weeks. It’s a brutal mental test because you always have to work on your own.

“As top players, we earn a lot of money, but sometimes we pay a hefty price with our health. I would give away all the money to be healthy again, to be able to do my job. To do what I love: to play football.”
