Arsene Wenger remains interested in signing Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus, according to reports.

Reus has been on Wenger’s radar for more than two years now and reports are claiming the winger remains the boss’ priority in the transfer market.

The Germany international  is currently one of the best playmakers in the game but has struggled with injuries in recent years. He has been linked with a number of top clubs but many have refused to make a concrete bid due to concerns over the player’s ability to stay fit.

Arsenal are one of those clubs that have been keeping it’s eyes on the playmaker and Tutto Mercato Web via the Daily Express claims Arsenal have not given up on signing Reus.

Wenger, who is a big fan of Reus is expected to step up his interest in the midfielder if Ozil decides to leave the Emirates.

Mesut Ozil’s future at Arsenal is yet to be resolved, the Gunners number 11 has been in talks with the club over a new deal since May.

Some reports claim the player still harbors the intention of moving to Real Madrid in the future and wants to take his time before committing his future to the club.

Wenger will continue to convince Ozil to sign a new deal at the club but doesn’t want to take chances and will continue to monitor Reus’ situation at BVB.

Reus is a player whose quality is not in doubt and will definitely strengthen our squad. However, the biggest problem remains his injury record, the 27 year old is yet to feature for BVB this season and the club will be making a big error if it allows a player like Ozil leave, only for an injury prone player to replace him.

Reus will be welcomed at Arsenal but not as a replacement for Ozil.
