Premier League outfit Arsenal are reportedly set to lure German international Marco Reus away from his present club Dortmund FC in a sensational summer transfer deal.

The Gunners did not make any addition in the winter transfer window but are likely to seal the deal this forthcoming summer.

New Source in Germany say Arsenal aims to use the playmaker bolster the squad as they continue their dream of lifting the English top flight title. Chelsea seem to have run away with the title this season. The Blues have been consistent in churning out the required results and their competition, including Arsenal, have been faltering.

Arsenal lost 1-2 to Watford at the Emirates in the league last week, further denting their hopes of stealing the title come May. They may be looking at adding Reus – who Bild values around £60 million – to their squad as they continue the chase next term.

Reus has had an injury-laden season. He has started just six games in all competitions under Coach Thomas Tuchel this campaign. The manager might be open to releasing one of his best players particularly as his recent years have been the same. The player missed the World Cup in 2014 and the Euro 2016 due to injuries, and he may be willing to change environment.

Despite lacking substantial game time, he remains consistent in his goalscoring when he returns.

On the other hand Arsenal have completed the transfer of Stephy Mavididi. The club allowed the player move on loan to Charlton as he is yet to get his debut. Mavididi has starred in two EFL games this season and has been decent in action for the feeder team. However, the club wants him to go out and get more experience under his belt.

The youngster revealed that he was happy with the move and was “looking forward to the experience.”
