Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has hinted Arsenal target Marco Reus will be granted permission to leave the club in the summer.

The Germany international has reportedly been identified by Arsene Wenger as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez, should the Chile star, as widely expected, depart during the close season.

The former Barcelona forward’s talks over a new contract have stalled in recent months, coinciding with a run of form which has seen the north London club drop out of the title race and suffer a Champions League thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Should Sanchez seek a move, Arsenal are believed to be willing to pay £51 million to land the Dortmund star, who has struggled badly with injury in recent times, at the end of the season.

And Watzke fueled speculation, telling ‘We have lot of players, especially up front, something can happen there’

Dortmund are also fighting to keep hold of star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has spoken openly of his desire to complete a dream move to Real Madrid, while manager Thomas Thuchel has been mentioned as a possible candidate to succeed Wenger.
