Arsenal are just one of a nymber of big clubs around Europe that have been linked with the Germany inbternational attacker, Marco Reus. It is no surprise really, because the 25-year old is seriously good, but due to the fact that his contract with current club Borussia Dortmund still has three years to run and the Bundesliga giants have repeatedly declared they would not sell, it looked like Arsenal would be just another disappointed club as well.
But hold the front page, Gooners, because it appears that the stunning transfer of Reus to Arsenal could be back on after all. As reported by the Daily Star, the CEO of Dortmund, Hans-Joachim Wtzke, has suggested to the German media that the talented forward could soon be moving on and it seems as though there is not a lot they can do about it.
Watzke said, “We will have to wait and see whether we can keep hold of Marco.
“All I can say is that I know him really well and it’s not about money with him.”
And the same report claims that Spanish champions Atletico Madrid have pulled out of the race because they will not meet his release clause of £25 million. If he really does have that clause, it seems like a pretty low amount for such a top player, so maybe the reason he has not gone yet is that the right club have not met it yet.
But with the likes of Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Man United also very keen, Arsenal would still face serious competition for Reus. Butr there is more good news, also from the Daily Star, which is reporting that Arsenal have already held talks with the German star earlier this summer and were ready to do the deal, until he injured himself just before the World Cup finals.
With the player fit again, Arsene Wenger is apparently now ready to make the move. I really hope this one is true because along with Alexis, Reus would give Arsenal a frighteningly strong attack…
