Last summer’s transfer window was somewhat underwhelming for Arsenal fans, but the Gunners still made one marquee signing in former Chelsea goal keeper Petr Cech.
The previous year, Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez and the summer before that Mesut Ozil joined the North London club from Real Madrid. The Arsenal manager has been making a habit of making a world class signing each year.
This summer transfer window, Arsenal fans will be hoping the club manage to pull off a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus after a bid for Vardy stalled.
Big European clubs like Real Madrid will be interested in signing 26-year-old Reus if he were to become available, but, if Wenger could lure the Germany international to the Emirates, he could make all the difference.
Although Arsenal has plenty of options on the right-hand side, the club is lacking a world-class player there, since the trio of Arteta, Flamini and Rosicky departed the club at the end of last season, Reus would be the perfect fit.
A world-class striker and fan favorite , with an eye for goals from the midfield, Reus is the next best thing. The German has managed 45 goals in 95 appearances during his three and a half years at Dortmund.
The attacking midfielder who is just entering the prime of his career fits the profile of a big money Arsene Wenger signing. With Alexis Sanchez, Reus and Mesut Ozil, Arsenal would possess one of the best-attacking midfield trios in Europe.
The midfielder who can come relatively cheaper than the price used to acquire Mesut Ozil can play on both wings and is considered by many as a upgrade on Theo Walcott who is likely to depart the club this summer. My take is that Arsene Wenger should try and sign him.
