Premier League giants Arsenal will look to sign Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus if they are unable to tie down Alexis Sanchez to a new contract, according to reports from the Daily Mirror. The German reportedly flew to London in 2014 to hold talks with Wenger before got injured and the deal broken down.
Alexis Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona during the summer of 2014 for a fee believed to be in the region of around £31.7 million and it has to be said that the Chilean international has managed to set the Emirates Stadium alight with his fine performances.
Sanchez has managed as stunning 50 goals in just 107 appearances for Arsenal so far and there is arguing with the fact that the 27-year-old is one of the best players currently plying their trade in the Premier League.
In addition to his proficiency in front of goal, Sanchez has managed to win over the fans with his hard working displays off the ball as well and the club faithful would most certainly want to see the Chilean international stay put at the club for as long as possible.
Even the club hierarchy would want the same and Arsenal have already started talks of a new contract with Sanchez as he is set to enter the final 18 months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium in January.
However, there have been claims that Sanchez potentially may not look to sign an extension with Arsenal and recently, the likes of Juventus and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the former Barcelona star.
While Arsenal will surely pull out all the stops in order to keep hold of Sanchez, the Daily Mirror have gone on to claim that the Gunners are already preparing contingency plans in the event that the Chilean does not agree a new contract by eyeing up a move for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.
Reus is considered as one of the best attacking players in the Europe at the moment and is one of Borussia Dortmund’s prized assets. As a result, a host of top clubs have been linked with a move for the German international and Arsenal are said to looking to sign him next summer by placing a bid in the region of around £30 million.
