United & Arsenal interest in €18 midfielder 'genuine'

Published Add your comment

Manchester United and Arsenal have reportedly been showing an interest in Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Marco Reus.

The German international continues to earn rave reviews for his performances in the Bundesliga and is also said to be a target for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

According to The Guardian, both United and Arsenal 'genuinely targeted' Reus during the spring as Die Fohlen looked like they were about to slip out of Germany's top division.

However, Reus scored the goal which prevented Gladbach's relegation and, with that, seemingly extinguished the seriousness of the interest from Arsenal and United.

Midfield reinforcements were high on the agenda for both Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson during the transfer window and, it would appear, Reus was under consideration from both managers.

Whether or not Arsenal or United decide to formalise their interest in the youngster come the January transfer window remains to be seen but, it is claimed, Reus can leave Borussia for €18 million.

The Barclays Premier League duo are both thought to still be keen to bolster their respective midfields following the respective departures of Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Paul Scholes for varying reasons.

Eden Hazard and Marvin Martin are reportedly on the wish list of Arsenal, while Barry Bannan and Angel di Maria could allegedly move to Old Trafford.
