Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on Marco Reus, and have shown an interest in securing the winger’s services. According to reports, the Premier League rivals are firm admirers of the German, and are prepared to go head to head in an attempt to prise him away from Borussia Dortmund.
Reus is one of the best talents Germany have produced in years, but unfortunately, his career has been ravaged by constant injury problems, and it has hindered him from achieving his full potential. Naturally, the problems have had a strong impact on his mental state as well, and it has been heartbreaking to watch such a great player repeatedly suffer from circumstances not in his control.
Despite the injury woes, he is still widely considered as one of the best players in the world, and judging by the recent rumours, his long spells on the sidelines haven’t stopped clubs from showing an interest in signing him.
Manchester United are desperate to sign a new wide man, having tried and failed with several attempts to bring in Ivan Perisic last summer. A number of options could possibly be on the cards, but Reus is apparently a firm favourite of Jose Mourinho, who will seek to convince Dortmund to let him go.
Arsenal, on the other hand, look set to lose Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City in one of the upcoming transfer windows, and are in search of a world-class replacement for the Chilean, who is arguably their best player at the moment. Arsene Wenger has always been an open admirer of Reus, and sees him as the perfect fit in the Gunners’ left-wing position.
Speculation linked to other clubs aside, Dortmund themselves are very eager to keep a hold of Reus, with the 28-year-old’s current deal set to expire in 2019. The player is believed to be keen on a move away from Dortmund once he makes a complete recovery, and a switch to the Premier League could see him attempt to start over and make a name for himself around Europe once more.
