Opinion: Arsenal should back Emery and make a summer move for this German star

Arsenal continue to plough ahead in their quest to cement a top four place this season under new manager Unai Emery.

The Gunners, despite suffering a poor loss in mid-week against Rennes, will be confident of securing that Champions League spot they crave, and a good run of form between now and the end of the season could see them home.

However, a disappointing January saw Arsenal quiet in the market, with no new additions to the ranks in what could well prove a crucial lack of business for the club.

Depending on how things pan out between now and the summer, things during the next transfer window could be quite different, and we here in the Tavern think that Emery needs backing by his board to bring in some new players of real quality.

And one man we feel would be a superb addition to the Gunners is Dortmund and Germany forward, Marco Reus.

The wide forward has long been a superb talent over in the Bundesliga, and it would be exciting for the English game to see a player of his quality make his mark in the Premier League.

For Arsenal in particular, they could do with another player in attacking areas who can make a real difference, especially with the wavering form and undecided future of fellow German, Mesut Ozil.

Reus has proved his quality over a long period of time now, and he could well be keen on a reunion with former Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, who has excelled in the red and white of Arsenal.

The Gunners have a long way to go to challenge right at the top, but signing players like Reus might be a big step in the right direction.
