He has been on the transfer of radar of Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for some time according to many Arsenal transfer rumours over the last few years and Marco Reus may not even be ready to move clubs until next summer, but we need to keep a very close watch on his situation.
According to a Daily Express report, our Premier League rivals Man City have already got the jump on the Gunners, having made contact with the forward’s Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund.
Apparently City have enquired about the possible availability of Reus and asked to be kept informed about any news or changes in the situation. And this is not just a pipe dream of a transfer for Arsenal, because the 25-year old Germany international has put off tals about a contract extension and his current deal with Dortmund has a £20 million release clause that is due to become active in the summer.
According to various media reports, Reus is said to be an admirer of Arsenal, Wenger and the way we play. He also has three German team mates already at the club so we should have a good chance of signing him, as long as we don’t drag our feet and let City or another side beat us to the punch.
Do you think Wenger should make his move in January, perhaps with an offer of £25-30 million or with Podolski as a sweetener? We can afford it after all….
