    Am I the only one thinking Podolski + £20m for Reus? Dortmund would take the German international, and if Reus does really have a ridiculously low buyout clause, Dortmund would take that deal.

    No they wouldn't. That's a terrible deal from their pov.

    Every club in Europe will be after him next summer, it'll be interesting to see what happens.

    Considering his buyout might be £19.8m next year, I fail to see how £20m and Podolski is a terrible deal.

    His buyout activates next summer for 20m, so he'll end up at Bayern...

    If Podolski does leave then it'll mean that we're odds on to get an attacker..

    1) We'll loose depth
    2) Itll free up the number 9 shirt
    3) I just hope the above two points are good enough to bring in another striker

    Keyword: next year. Why would they agree to it now?

    They could have got £30m for Lewandowski last summer but let him leave on a free instead.

    Poldi is a glorified Eboue/Santos type, a class clown. If he's not stunting for Instagram, he's smiley like a loon. He works like this;

    Bench, decent sub performances, poor starting performances, bench.

    If we can get £10-£15m for a 29 year old who is on £100k a week and more often than not, on the bench, I'd take thee money and run. I would expect AW to have someone in mind if Poldi went, whether than be using Gnabry/Campbell more or getting someone in.

    Based on? Klopp had public beef with Podolski and called him overrated and "too expensive considering he delivers once in a few weeks", not to mention that Podolski doesn't fit their high pressing game at all and can hardly fill the CAM role that Reus frequently plays. Don't see what his German nationality has to do with it either, BVB don't care about that too much at all, they're not Bayern.

    and if Reus does really have a ridiculously low buyout clause, Dortmund would take that deal.
    They rejected more lucrative deals, regardless of the b/o clause, so 20m plus Podolski is hardly too good to turn down. And Reus hasn't even turned Bvb's contract offer down yet, if they were sure he'd turn it down they could already have accepted one of the other offers.

    Don't see why Reus would agree to the move either. He rejected Bayern and Real while at BVB, and one SportBild quote (who are as reliable as caughtoffside for quotes) about him being an Arsenal fan as a kid doesn't make it likely that he'd throw his "won't leave BVB this summer" credo overboard for Arsenal. Especially considering he'll probably have all of Europe's top clubs in a wage bidding war to choose from next year.

    This Reus obsession is just a pipedream, it won't happen.

    He allegedly rejected Bayern this summer, so we'll see. And the 20m figure comes from Bayern officials, more reliable sources all said €35.

    No disrespect to Podolski, but I guess Dortmund will not take that deal, as Podolski is not to compare with Reus who is one of the best midfielder in Bundesliga, possibly even the best one at the moment. Another reason why Reus will not move to Arsenal is the wage. Dortmund would pay 6 Millions of euros, if he give the clause up. I cannot imagine that Arsenal would offer such a sum of wage for him. In other words: he is too expensive!

    6 million euros is €115k a week which is £92k a week

    He would probably get a higher contract than that here

    I think so too. Reus can play everywhere in every top club, no matter whether in England or Spain. Even Barcelona is interest in a signing...
