Does this photo show Arsenal WILL beat Bayern to Reus?

As we all know, there is not too much loyalty left in top flight football these days, but Arsenal may be able to benefit from a little bit that is left. If this picture below is anything to go by that is.

The Gunners have long been linked with the possible transfer of the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Marco Reus, but recent transfer rumours have suggested that the 25-year old is more likely to be joining his former club team mates Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski at Dortmund’s great rivals and the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

reus snubs hug

But the way Reus reacted to the Polish striker’s attempt to give him a hug after Bayern beat Dortmund 2-1 at the weekend suggest otherwise. Maybe the fact that Reus is actually from Dortmund means that he is not so keen to play for their main rivals and the fact that the £19.5 million release clause in his contract, which kicks in next summer according to a Daily Mail report, is well within Arsenal’s reach could see Reus heading to the Premier League.

There would still be plenty of competition for his signature, with Man City and Liverpool linked as well, but if Reus really is reluctant to join Bayern Munich, that would be one major obstacle out of the way for Arsene Wenger to add the stunning forward to Arsenal’s ever growing list of German players. What do you think Gooners?

      Who cares, the article is stupid, if we bought Reus, with the manager we have, we’d probably play him in goal!

    Seriously, this is an Arsenal fans forum, not CaughtOffside! Headlines like this irritate me so much… “Does this photo show Arsenal WILL beat Bayern to Reus?”… Assuming that Arsenal are the ONLY team after Reus besides Bayern?

      I assume u are using the term fans very loosely? This site is on a level with le grove,in terms of fan support for the club.

        Why can fans not make some noise when their beloved club is being dragged further down by incompetence?
        I am an Arsenal FC supporter NOT an Arsene Wenger supporter, big difference and i reserve the right to make some noise about it.
        There are fans of this club who would dress in a new suit to let someone walk over them.
        Grow a set and support your club not the underachiever!

    off Topic (as this topic is of no importance in this grieving moment) …… Ok, the BFG or what ever u call him, have just proven his irrelevance to this team (wasted heights , useless in duels) , misfiring carzola was let 2 continue, ramsey wasnt himself yet was forced 2 play, monreal will never be a dream CB, 80th minute subs as usual(then players are played outta position) , Wenger Loves his coat and zippers more than the team, who’s next?…….the SWANS….. Brace urselves up! Many may pee in their pants come sunday

    Not now, we need good defensive players at the moment… We need a DM and CB at the least, then for Wenger and Bould to teach the team how to defend as a unit..

    Did you see how Diego Costa was behaving towards Chelski during last seasons CL semi final? He was squaring up to Terry and Cahill m, he was making over the top tackles in Chelski players and even went to the Chelski players and was trying to provoke them… The Chelski Fans started calling him a spoilt brat and a thug..

    But he is at Chelski a few months later…

    Everyone is screaming for defensive midfielder, is he going to play alone in central midfield, come on if he plays with these players who dont know what their roles are then its useless. We need another #8 who can dictate the tempo of the game, knows where to stand and knows where to put the ball not doing basic passing. I will keep reminding everyone this, as long as Wilshere, Ramsey, Arteta, Flamini, Coquelin are our central midfielders, we are never going to win anything big. There is a deference between class and form

      Ox was our second best player last night and clearly should have be left in the game. Ramsey (tired, ineffective and in poor form) should have come off instead.

    In one word, no.

    I honestly don’t see why he’d join us. He can get more money, trophies and probably less injuries elsewhere.

    We need a DM, a CB and keeper.
    Attacking wise if anything we need to get rid off a few players who just aren’t good enough.

      The manager is the first position that Arsenal have to sort out!!! Without that everything else is just throwing good money after bad and there will then be no money left when we eventually get a proper manager if the board have their way. Sir Fish and Chips is clearly a chairman asleep at the wheel.

    The only problem Reus will solve is our lack of aggressivity but it won’t serve anything if the other issues are not addressed.

    We are a soft team, we seem to have problems mopping the pressure from most team, very little physical presence in midfield and unable to cope organise oûrselves when we do not have the ball.

    This is a squad issue: we needs at least one quality CB, one TOP DM and an understudy for him. Do we need another striker? Not necessarily, look at Pool last season and you will find out they front line has pretty much the same ability as Sanchez/Wellbeck or even better Sanchez/Walcott.

    So why can’t we replicate what they did last year? We are lacking a leader on the pitch and steel in midfield, simple as…and I do not believe our manager is the best man to unlock the potential of the team. We lack spirit & confidence, we lack discipline, we lack aggression and most of all we lack professionalism. Look at Chelsea and you will see the differences, those sc@ms are on the pitch to win and won’t have it any other way, we get on the pitch and barely have a go.

    Sanchez is one of the only player with a winning mentality, how long will it be before he gives in and stops giving a damn?

    Things have got to change in JANUARY, there is no succession plan for Flamini/Arteta or Mertesacker so bringing a CM and CBin the summer will be TOO LATE for the new players to adapt to the team and the EPL.

    Lastly our “boss” repeats selection and substitution mistakes over and over again. Ramsey should have gone after the first half…simples, clear message “if you don’t contribute you don’t stay on the pitch”. Taking the Ox off was a joke…at least Walcott had enough pace to pin them down. Why not try to seat back and counter with Walcott/Sanchez/Ox?

    We’ll get away with it but last night was a tactical disgrace and exposed the holes in our squad.

    This photo is part of a video, which you can find in Metro, were Lewandowski tries to consolate Reus after the match for Dortmund’s defeat. Reus was Dortmunds MVP in that game so he felt frustrated and dissapointed with the result. It means nothing about his future and trust me, Bayern and Guardiola have every means in order to persuade him to join them. We should rather concentrate on empowering our defence, because our attacking options are good enough at the moment.

    I HAVE SAID IT A MILLION TIME. WENGER WILL NOT BRING A CB OR A DM . HE THINK MONREAL IS A GOOD CB. HE IS LOOSING HIS PLOT, BECUASE HE CANNOT DISTINGUISH GOOD AND BAD.
    HE WILL DO HIS TRICK AGAIN, TELLING THE FANS HE WILL BUY ,THEN AT THE LAST MINUTE ,HE WILL BE UNABLE TO FIND THE RIGHT PLAYER.
    BY DECEMBER KOCIENKY WILL BE BACK , THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO BUY.
    TIME HAS COME ,HE MUST GO AND NOT TO MOVE UPSTAIRS,
