Arsenal fans have been handed a positive report amidst the suggestions that they’ve held talks with Marco Reus, with the Gunners keen to land the Borussia Dortmund ace in a deal that would break the record fee they paid for Mesut Ozil in 2013.
However, the downside is that this deal is likely to go ahead if Alexis Sanchez leaves the club this summer and it’s unlikely that the Gunners would be able to boast both Alexis and Reus, which makes it a bitter pill to swallow.
There is no doubt that Reus is a top-class signing but Alexis Sanchez seems to be on a level of his own right now and can be seen as irreplaceable. At 28, now into the prime years of his career, it would be extremely difficult to find a replacement.
Reus, at 27, could be that man and is also approaching his prime years but he has struggled with injury problems. That’s left Arsenal fans with a lot to think about regarding a potential deal and they took to social media to share their thoughts on the reports.
I am 100% sure that this Reus talk is Arsenal making sure Alexis' agent pipes down.

The Reus rumours are almost definitely fake but he'd be the perfect addition. He's on Sanchez/Hazard level and he'd complete the squad.

Arsenal open talks with Marco Reus in case Sanchez leaves. ????
We all know if he leaves we'll be promoting Sanogo and saving the cash

I'd take Reus at Arsenal just for his hair tbh

Reports circulating that Arsenal are in for Reus, maybe as a Sanchez replacement. I hope not. Id rather both play together.

Reus would perfectly fit at Arsenal. But I don't think that transfer will happen.

If @Arsenal want keep Sanchez, we need to sign players like Reus now, not sign them once he's gone

I don't believe that Reus is coming to Arsenal

I don't believe the rumour but this is all that's wrong with Arsenal. Sign Reus to keep Alexis, not to replace him. https://t.co/EHMVcUxl2R

Can I dream of a world where we have Özil, Alexis AND Reus?
— Squid Boy (@TheSquidBoyLike) January 27, 2017
Reus>Ozil. Would be the dream if this is true. Imagine a front 4 of Reus-Iwobi-Ozil

Reus Özil Walcott
