Marco Reus was going to leave Dortmund for Arsenal until ankle injury ruined plans [Metro]

An astonishing story coming from The Metro today, Marco Reus was apparently set to leave Borussia Dortmund for Arsenal up until he suffered a serious injury to his ankle.

The tweet at the bottom of the page from respected Spanish football journalist Kike Marin says that Arsenal could have had Reus for as little as €35 million before he suffered ankle ligament damage.

Although the story initially sounds sensational, the fact that Reus reportedly rejected a new contract at Dortmund adds credibility to the rumour that he wants to depart.

At the time it was thought that the injury only scuppered his World Cup plans but it appears as though it also spoiled a move away.
