Marco Reus, the Borussia M’gladbach striker, who had such a breakout game against Greece was singled out by Arsene Wenger for some lofty praise. Wenger is at the 2012 Euro in the capacity of TV analyst for French station TF1. The French manager when asked if he was “on the case” with Reus, reportedly replied, “Yes.”
Before we fall into an easy trap, lets say straight off, Wenger has been an admirer of many players. In January he said the same thing about Karim Benzema and everyone jumped on the story about the disgruntled Real Madrid striker finding a new home in the Emirates.
Wenger regularly salivates over strikers and wingers. It’s not new. But they are all not going to come to the Emirates. Besides Reus just signed for Borussia Dortmund this January on a five year contract with the club losing Shinji Kagawa who is Man Utd bound. There is no way Reus will be available to come to the Emirates. Case closed.
