Deadline Day: Arsenal Plan Daring ‘Take It Or Leave It’ £40m Raid For Marco Reus

By Chris Wright

Germany Soccer Bundesliga

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are waiting until cover of darkness to stage a daring midnight raid on Borussia Dortmund for their much-vaunted forward Maro Reus.

Reus reportedly has a clause in his contract that would see him able to leave Dortmund for just £25million next summer and, with that in mind, it’s being mooted that the Gunners are hoping to tempt the Bundesliga club into selling early by slapping a take-it-or-leave-it £40million wodge on the table just before the window closes.

Arsenal are also hoping that Shinji Kagawa’s return to Dortmund may give them a bit of leverage in their attempts to jemmy Reus away from BVB.

We shall see…

    Hi Chris,

    How does Maro Reus STATS compare to the strikers already at Arsenal?

    Is he a holding target man and does he have the attributes for the phisical english game?

      @dave: Put it this way: Reus is to Yaya Sanago what caviar is to dog food.

      Definitely not a target man/out-and-out striker but rather a quick, sprightly and skilful No.10-style forward.

    Why would Dortmund want to sell anyone to Arsenal at the moment? We’ve just been drawn against them in the CL.
