Marco Reus and five more Sanchez-Ozil replacements for Arsenal
According to reports from The Telegraph, Arsenal are lining up Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil, with the duo’s longstanding contract sagas still lingering over the north London club.
Both of their deals expire at the end of next season and according to the report, there’s still some dispute over wages, with the attacking pair wanting in excess of £200k-per-week apiece.
Of course, either exiting the Emirates Stadium as a consequence of failing to agree new deals would be a huge blow to the Gunners.
To say they’re a two-man team would be unfair, but Arsenal’s attacking efforts undoubtedly hinge upon two players who have contributed to 66% of their Premier League goals this season, either by scoring or setting up.
Reus, widely revered as the Bundesliga’s biggest talent outside of Bayern Munich, would be a worthy replacement – but who else could potentially help overcome the Ozil-Sanchez void? As much as requiring signings to fill their positions, it’s a question of who can provide that talismanic quality in the final third.
