Manchester City and Arsenal are ready to battle it out for Borussia Moenchengladbach wonder-kid Marco Reus.

The two Premier League clubs have constantly watched the 22-year-old midfielder continue to impress in the Bundesliga this season and sources in Germany expect them both to make a move in the January transfer window.

Moenchengladbach rate Reus at £15million, but are worried his valuation may start to fall with just over two years left on his contract.

They bought him from Borussia Dortmund for £800,000 just over two years ago and he has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting players in the country.

Reus made his international debut against Turkey last month and is in Germany’s squad for the forthcoming friendlies against the Ukraine and Holland.

Gemann giants Bayern Munich have already been linked with a move, but are unwilling to go anywhere near Moenchangladbach’s asking price.

Reus has explosive acceleration and excellent ball control as well as an eye for goal.

The transfer fee would not be a problem for City, but Arsenal’s need is even more acute with Arsene Wenger needing midfield recruits.
