Arsenal and Manchester City target Marco Reus is set for a month on the sidelines after picking up an injury in the Euro 2016 qualifier between Germany and Scotland last night.

The midfielder missed the World Cup after withdrawing with an ankle injury, and was forced to watch from the sidelines as Joachim Low’s side lifted the trophy in Brazil.

Injury curse

Now, the injury curse has struck again after he was carried off the field during the 2-1 win against the visiting Scots at the Westfalenstadion.

Dortmund have since confirmed that the 25-year-old will be out for around a month, meaning he’ll miss the Champions League clash against the Gunners - a team who tried to sign him during the summer transfer window.

Indeed, it was claimed that Arsene Wenger held secret talks with the player in an effort to lure him to the Emirates Stadium, although a move to Arsenal failed to materialise as the clock ticked down.

Wenger did sign Danny Welbeck on deadline day, although Reus would have been received with a little more excitement by Arsenal fans given his track record in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

£25m price tag

That said, his injury problems would be a concern to interested parties, who will need to pay £25million to activate his release clause next summer.

Arsenal aren’t the only Premier League club with an interest in the player however, with Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini ready to go ‘head-to-head’ for the signature, according to The Daily Star.

The paper goes on to report that Reus will be the Citizens’ top priority next summer, with Txiki Begiristain already working on a deal to bring the player to the Etihad Stadium.

City's salary issues

Reus would certainly give Manchester City yet another option going forward if they were to land the player, although they need a spending cap to be lifted to make the deal a reality.
