Agent reveals Reus held talks with Arsenal, Man Utd & Barcelona

Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus was targeted by a host of European heavyweights in 2015.

Reus signed a new deal with Dortmund that year, but one of Reus' agents, Kai Psotta, says the summer was filled with meetings with some of Europe's giant clubs.

"For example, in summer 2015, my boss Dirk Hebel sat in the Dusseldorf airport hotel with Barcelona's Raul Sanllehi. Six months later, the Catalan club's officials, led by Robert Fernandez, launched another attempt to lure Reus to Spain," Psotta told GQ.

"They were as unsuccessful as Arsenal's Richard Law, who had a total of three meetings, as were Ivan Gazidis of AC Milan and Olivier Letang of Paris Saint-Germain and representatives of both Manchester clubs."
