Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsene Wenger has identified Marco Rues as the perfect replacement for Alexis Sanchez if he should leave the Emirates in the summer.
The winger, who is yet to sign an extension to his current contract which expires in the summer of 2018, has been linked with Arsenal for a long time now and he was close to sealing a deal with the Gunners in 2014 before Alexis Sanchez’s arrival.
Reus is one of Arsenal’s top targets with the club prepared to pay £51 million for the Germany international in the summer.
The 27-year-old has only featured in five Bundesliga game this season due to injury.
Marco Rues would be a rare find for Wenger as he could be used as attacking midfielder, winger and striker.
