Arsenal and Manchester City are understood to have joined the queue of clubs hoping to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus.
Reus, who missed Germany’s successful World Cup this summer due to a foot injury, has long been linked with a move away from the Westfalenstadion, with Liverpool and Barcelona heavily linked to the forward.
However, Arsenal and Manchester City have now reportedly joined the chase for the 25-year-old, and are set to battle it out for his services.

Reports have emerged that a clause exists in Reus’ contract that will be activated next summer, whereby the much-coveted star’s release clause will be around Â£25million.
Dortmund are unlikely to give up Reus without a fight however.
Speaking to Deutsche Presseagentur about the future of the German forward, Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp said: "I can tell you I have a great feeling regarding Marco Reus’ future at Borussia Dortmund.
"Marco will definitely be around at our club for quite a while."
Reus, who signed for Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach for Â£13.5m in January 2012, is also understood to have attracted interest from Manchester United, although Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has previously insisted that Reus rejected a move there this summer.
"He had an offer for a lot of money from Manchester United and he has not gone," Cerezo told Onda Cero.
