Arsenal's €18m target 'would consider' Chelsea move - agent

Published Add your comment

Arsenal and Chelsea have received a timely boost in their pursuit of Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marco Reus, after his confirmed he would consider a move away from Germany.

The 22-year-old has an €18million buy-out clause in his current contract, and his representative Dirk Hebel revealed that if that figure was met then his client would be open to a transfer.

"As you know there are many teams that are interested in him," he told "But none has formally made contact."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Reus' talent, and is rumoured to be considering an attempt to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in January.

However, Arsenal are likely to face competition for his signature from Chelsea, as Andre Villas-Boas also wants to strengthen his Blues squad when the transfer window reopens, and may look to hijack the move and take him to Stamford Bridge.

"Marco is happy at Moenchengladbach," Hebel continued. "But he knows that if the offer were to come, no doubt he would consider it along with the will of Borussia, but today his intention is to stay."
