Now that there is the usual uncertainty that Theo Walcott may leave Arsenal this summer, and an extra space made in the squad thanks to the exile of Lukas Podolski to Italy, the Gunners are now being linked with attacking midfielders as well as the usual defensive mids and centre-backs.
A favourite Arsenal target (according to the media at least) is Dortmund’s Marco Reus. The regular German international is now back on the Wenger’s radar, according to the Telegraph. The 25 year-old and his team-mates have had a hard time in the Bundesliga this season and Champions League football is definitely out of the question next season. He would definitely be an excellent addition to Arsenal as he scores for fun from the wing (just like Alexis!). I would love to see him in red and white but we have been linked with him so many times before it has started to become monotonous.
Reus may have missed ut on becoming a World Cup winner through injury, but his exploits for Dortmund has made him stand out as a top top top player. His career record at Dortmund of 53 goals in 111 games is brilliant, and Wenger will obviously like his two-footed versatility which means he can play on either wing comfortably. And last season he scored an amazing eight times from free-kicks which is something that Walcott is hardly renowned for!
If Arsenally really DO let Walcott go then I would love Reus to come in as his replacement. Would you?
