"Our stance has not changed," sporting director Michael Zorc told Bild. "Our goal remains that Marco Reus stays here in the long-term."
The Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke claims his side are facing another summer of rebuilding after losing key players and are looking to make Reus the focal point of the new project.
The club may be hard pressed to tie the German down though, with Reus' final decision hinging on whether his current side make the necessary moves to challenge for top honours in the summer.
Bayern Munich are currently 19 points clear of Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga, with Watzke admitting (via FAZ): "We need a squad adjustment in the summer. Things will be clearer after the second half of the season. Michael Zorc has the lead on this. He knows my opinion and expectation."
