Reus reveals Arsenal admiration

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marco Reus has spoken of his admiration for Arsenal, and has not ruled out joining the Gunners in the future.

Football News: Marco Reus, Gladbach

Reus is currently just one of many talented young players that Germany have been blessed with in recent years, and has spent the last two seasons starring for Gladbach in the Bundesliga.

The 22-year-old's dazzling performances in attacking midfield have seen him been linked to Bavarian giants Bayern Munich, with reports in Germany suggesting the contract Reus has with Gladbach includes a minimum- fee release clause.

While Reus admits that is true, he maintains he is currently loving life at Borussia-Park.

"I have everything I need here," Reus told Der Westen.

"Here I have a great environment with great people with whom one can talk about things other than football.

"There is one [release clause]... that I can leave in 2013 for a specific sum."

And while Reus is firmly committed to the Gladbach cause in the immediate future, he did reveal one particular club which he has held close to his heart since he was a child.

"I think everyone has their favourite club from youth.

"And I was always a fan of Arsenal, because I appreciate the culture of their game."

And when asked if he would consider a move to Bayern, Reus was quick to deny he was ready to leave Gladbach.

"No, as I said, I'm happy to play at Gladbach, and I'm not thinking about other things."

Reus has been called up to Joachim Low's German national team on three previous occasions, but injury has so far prevented him from earning his first senior cap.
