I really hope that this particular Arsenal transfer rumour is not just the fevered imaginings of a football media caught up in the transfer deadline day madness. But the reported transfer of the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Marco Reus to Arsenal will not happen yet anyway.
The report in the Daily Star is all about where the Talented and destructive forward will move at the end of the season, when the £20 million release clause in his contract becomes active. Unless there is some form of major miracle in the Bundesliga in the coming months or Jurgen Klopp can win the Champions League, Dortmund are not going to be among the European elite next year and they will find it hard to persuade their stars to stay.
So it would not be a surprise to see Reus move in the summer, but with some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Man United all apparently keen on the German, it would be quite a surprise to see Arsenal get him.
But the report claims that is just what is going to happen in the summer, as Reus is ready to snub all of those European giants to become a Gunner. The story is that he will choose Arsenal because of the chance to work with our manager. Now what a coup that would be for Wenger!
