Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus is set to make a decision on his future in April, with it yet undecided whether or not he will leave the Signal Iduna Park.

Manchester United and Arsenal are just two of the European juggernauts ready to fight over his signature, and with Jurgen Klopp’s men rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga table it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll opt for a departure rather than pledge his future to the fallen German giants.

Reus suitors

With a £20 million release clause Reus is a bargain of a buy, but given that the interest in him is so widespread - the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have also been mentioned as suitors in the past - his post-Dortmund career path is as uncertain as it could possibly be.

Now though, as related by the Daily Express, citing reports in Spain, Reus is to make a final decision before the opening of the summer transfer window, having set himself a two-month deadline to prioritise his preferred next location.

The big decision

If it’s England he picks then both United and Arsenal could be firmly in with a shout, though Manchester City and Liverpool’s interests can’t be completely removed from the equation.

Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal is said to be gearing up for another overhaul, with the £150 million+ he spent last summer yet to pay proper dividends. The 63-year-old has set about implementing his preferred style of play and the exits of the likes of Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Darren Fletcher prior to the start of the season and last month prove that he’s serious about making the squad his own.

Though United boast the attacking qualities of Angel Di Maria, Wayne Rooney and the burgeoning Adnan Januzaj they could certainly do withReus’s arrival, and if they qualify for the Champions League this season they’re sure to be chief amongst his suitors.

Meanwhile Arsene Wenger is more likely to be focused on the capture of an out and out forward, with neither Olivier Giroud or Welbeck capable of scoring the 20+ goals a season necessary to propel the Gunners towards a real title challenge. That being said Reus is a player well suited to Wenger’s style, and his price-tag is certain to ensure Arsenal’s involvement in the transfer battle.
