Reus scored a superb effort and got an assist as Dortmund beat Galatasaray 4-0 in the Champions League Wednesday.

Reus has been excellent since returning from injury, getting an assist in Dortmund's defeat to FC Köln Saturday and now scoring and making an assist against Galatasaray Wednesday. For his goal Reus caught Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera slightly off his line with a tremendous long-range effort and also set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's first goal with a pin-point pass across the box. Dortmund have obviously missed Reus who was effective throughout and if he can remain free of injury he will be a potent force this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus got an assist to his name and was his team's main creative outlet as Dortmund suffered a 2-1 loss Saturday at the hands of FC Köln.

Reus was back in the starting line-up following injury but could not halt Dortmund's fall down the Bundesliga table. Reus did well, getting an assist when he set up Ciro Immobile's strike, and had five shots himself including one that went narrowly wide in the opening stages. Reus however was slow in his decision-making at times and perhaps needs more games to get that overall sharpness back.

Reus is close to returning to the first team after playing 45 minutes in a match against Bochum under-23s Friday reports.

This is fantastic news for Dortmund who have struggled badly without their missing stars. Reus hasn't featured for a month since tearing ankle ligaments playing for Germany but now looks to be in contention once again. Expect him to feature in some way when Dortmund return to action on October 18th.

Reus has been the subject of an official approach from Manchester City, The Express reports.

Reus will be at the center of much speculation for months to come with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal all reportedly interested. It looks like Manchester City are now also keen, with boss Manuel Pellegrini apparently requesting an official update about Reus' situation from Dortmund. With a buy-out clause supposedly activating in the summer, a move to big-spending City is certainly not beyond the realms of possibility.

Reus will not be signing a new contract with Dortmund in the summer, The Mirror reports.

There has been much discussion about Reus' future but this is the most definite indication yet. The report states that there's a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for €25million in June. Furthermore, there are rumours that Real Madrid already have a deal in place which would see Reus making the same move as compatriot Toni Kroos did last summer. There are sure to be many twists and turns in this saga yet though especially with Real Madrid having a reputation for jumping the gun a little on transfers.

Reus suffered a partially torn lateral ligament in his left ankle during Germany's Euro 2016 qualifying against Scotland on Monday and he will be sidelined for at least four weeks, reports.

Reus injured the same ankle back in June, which ultimately led him to miss the World Cup, so the latest issue is especially troublesome. He has been a popular name in the last couple transfer windows and he has made it clear he does not see his future in Dortmund, but the injury issue will surely take a price on his expected future salary. In addition, he will now miss Dortmund's first Champions League group stage match against Arsenal.

Reus scored Borussia Dortmund's first goal in the team's 3-2 away win over FC Augsburg on Friday.

Not only did Reus find the back of the net, but he also played the entire 90 minutes of the victory, signalling that he's back at full fitness following the ankle issue that plagued him over the summer. Reus will be a fantasy force when healthy this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus, who has been out for the last few months with an ankle injury, captained Borussia Dortmund during its DFB Cup first round match against Stuttgarter Kickers, reports.

Reus is one of the best midfielders in Germany when fit, and he's been linked to numerous clubs this summer after making it clear he has no desire to stay with Dortmund long-term. He is in the last year of his contract, so Dortmund are running out of time if they want to get something for him instead of losing him for free like they did Robert Lewandowski. With his performance Saturday, he looks poised to start the Bundesliga opener against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.
