This photo is a KNIFE to the heart of Arsenal transfer hopes!

They say that you should not count your chickens until they are hatched and I don´t think that Arsenal fans had, but there was still a lot of hope and optimism that we might be able to complete the transfer of the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Marco Reus in the summer transfer window. Those hopes were boosted recently by reports that the player was keen to work with Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal now favourites over Man United to land Marco Reus?

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.

Arsenal get boost in Marco Reus chase and Podolski still wants out

There is a never-ending supply of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with Borussia Dortmund’s Marcus Reus, despite the amount of quality midfielders already in Arsene Wenger’s squad. Reus has a contract with Dortmund until 2017, but a release clause of just 25 million euros means that there will be interest from most top Premier League clubs.

Wenger is reportedly a long term admirer of the 25 year-old and todays news that Chelsea will definitely not be standing in the way of any potential bid for the German international wll be welcomed by Arsenal fans. Jose Mourinho made it clear esterday when he said: “We don’t want Marco Reus, that market is closed to us and the player belongs to Borussia Dortmund,”

Injury leaves Draxler to Arsenal transfer in ruins

According to recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the FC Schalke and Germany international star Julian Draxler was thought to be high on the list of potential signings for Arsene Wenger in the January transfer window that is fast approaching. But the exciting young player has suffered yet another injury setback.

The attacking midfielder only lasted 11 seconds of his club’s most recent Bundesliga game, a narrow home win over Augsburg on Friday evening. And the injury has been named as a pulled thigh muscle that will see him play no more part for Schalke or Germany for the rest of this year.

Why Marco Reus should be Arsenal’s next signing

The international break is almost over now and it was apparent how vital Özil is to Germany as they struggled massively against Poland and then the Republic of Ireland. But what was also apparent was how much they missed Marco Reus. The German was injured throughout the entire World Cup and it was fortunate that the team collectively managed to overcome that shortcoming as they went on to lift the greatest trophy in football. But now, his absence is clearly seen and it has been costing them and will continue to cost them. Why is that? It’s because he’s one of the best wide players in Europe.

Stop Kagawa and Arsenal WILL beat Borussia Dortmund

When we watched with baited breath to see who Arsenal would be playing in the group stages of the Champions League this season, all of the softer looking sides got put into other groups and the Gunners got another tough draw. But I am now starting to think that we may have got a bit of luck after all.

Anderlecht are the Belgian champions and you should not take any team that has made it into the group stages too lightly, but they should be the whipping boys. Galatasaray are the biggest club in Turkey and have done well in Europe recently, but there are signs that they are not so good this year.

Wilshere – Arsenal must not lose at Dortmund

The Gunners have a daunting fixture list for the rest of this month, and its a shame we couldn’t start by taking three points of Man City, but to look on the bright side Arsenal are still unbeaten this season.

Jack Wilshere is adamant that this run should remain intact when Arsenal travel to Dortmund on Tuesday in the first of the Champions League Group Stage. “They’re always good games when we face them,” he said on Arsenal.com. “It’s a tough game and we go there first this time, so the hardest match of the group will be the first one.

Can Arsenal make most of Man City and Dortmund troubles?

After a steady but far from brilliant start to the season, Arsenal really need to get going after this international break. But our next two fixtures could not be harder, on paper anyway, with Man City coming to the Emirates on Saturday and the Gunners off to face Borussia Dortmund in Germany just three days later.

But Arsenal have reason for confidence in both games. Neither of these big hitters has really shone yet this season either, and they each lost one of their main players to injury this week, so can Arsene Wenger and his players take advantage?

Dortmund’s Marco Reus to miss big Arsenal clash

Normally Arsenal fans are used to getting extra injuries when there is an international break, but just for once it seems the tables have turned in our favour.

The Gunners have a daunting opening Champions League game away at Borussia Dortmund in eight days time, but we have been given a boost by the fact that Marco Reus has sustained an ankle injury in Germany’s 2-1 win over Scotland last night, and is now likely to miss the match against Arsenal.

Real Madrid likely to snatch Arsenal’s long-term target?

Some reports in Spain claim that Real Madrid have a deal in place with Borussia Dortmund, that gives the club first-hand information on any bids made for German superstar, Marco Reus.

This means that should Arsenal bid for the midfield maestro, Real Madrid would be notified of the situation. If a team was to have a bid accepted for Reus, Los Blancos would have the option of matching the bid and given the first chance to talk to the player directly about a move.

Why Arsenal SHOULD get Marco Reus

The Possible Answer for LW/ST? by AndrewAB

As many others have stated, LW/ST seems to be a real area of concern for Arsenal fans. I don’t think Jack or Santi are the answer for left wing & as good a job as Giroud does he doesn’t inspire the front line of a title winning side. The solution I pose is Marco Reus. Based on other posts across the site I don’t think I need to convince anyone that he’d be a fantastic signing but more importantly I think he could be exactly what we need at the moment.

Which of the striker targets do Arsenal really need?

What Striker should Arsenal be looking to sign this season? by CJ

The Arsenal transfer rumours that usually circle around the Emirates at this time of year seem to be entirely focused on our supposed pursuit of big name strikers, just like every year we are being linked to every player under the sun. However this post will focus on the strikers we seem to be constantly linked with, Mario Mandzukic, Mario Balotelli, Karim Benzema and Loic Remy.
