According to many Arsenal transfer rumours over the last couple of years, Arsene Wenger has been very keen on completing the signing of the Germany international forward Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund. But this year the Frenchman´s hopes of finally getting his long term targets seemed to have suffered a terminal blow.
However, things have changed once more and even though the exciting attacker put pen to paper on a new contract to keep him at the Westfalenstadion until 2019, it now looks worthwhile for the Gunners to make a transfer bid for the talented 25-year old after Dortmund´s manager Jurgen Klopp announced his decision to leave the Bundesliga club after years in charge.
The charismatic manager is believed to be one of the major reasons for stars such as Reus wanting to stay where they are and there are likely to be some big changes at the club this summer. With no Champions League football to offer, Dortmund will struggle to fend off serious offers and we know that Wenger is willing able to pay more than £40 million for the right player these days.
And I remember Reus previously saying good things about Arsenal and the way we play under Arsene Wenger. With some German players in Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Serge Gnabry already at the club as well, could Arsenal finally be about to complete the transfer of this great player from Dortmund?
