This seems like the never-ending Arsenal transfer rumour to follow on from the yearly links with Salomon Kalou and Karim Benzema. Marco Reus is the latest all year rumour, but it was lately thought that Bayern Munich were nailed on to snatch the Dortmund winger at the end of the season.
Now it seems that Bayern have dropped out of the running, according to a report in the Telegraph, and Arsenal are now the favourites over Manchester United to sign the German international star. There is now very little chance that Dortmund will reach the Champions League this season, so it makes sense that a few of their stars will be looking to move on as soon as possible and Reus will certainly command a giant transfer fee if he moves to the Premiership.
With Rosicky and Arteta reaching the end of their sell-by date it would seem prudent for Arsenal to be looking to strengthen the midfield yet again this summer, and there are very few Gooners that would say no to the 25 year-old despite his well-known injury problems.
The report goes on to say that the Gunners are still very keen on bringing Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin to the Emirates (an Arteta replacement?) but that deal will probably hang on whether Arsenal or Southampton manage to stay in the Top Four or not.
If you had a choice, would you pick Reus or Schneiderlin?
