Report: Arsenal keen on signing €20m Bundesliga midfielder


Arsenal are keen on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Brandt, who in turn is open to making the move to north London, according to Bild.

The publication is claiming that the Bundesliga outfit would consider selling the attacking midfielder if they received an offer of around €20m (roughly £17.4m).

Brandt has struggled for regular game time this season and has featured in just over 1800 minutes across all competitions for BVB.

Should Arsenal sign Brandt?



Arsenal endured what could only be described as a shocking campaign, creatively, during the back end of last year. However, the introduction of Martin Odegaard in the January transfer window did a lot to change the wonders of the side.

With reports claiming the Norwegian is likely to stay at Real Madrid beyond this summer, there is a high chance the Gunners need to scout further transfer targets ahead of the summer window. And after Arsenal’s acrimonious exit from the European Super League, which was headed by Los Blancos chief Florentino Perez, there is a chance the Spanish club may refuse to do business with the team.

However, in Brandt, the Gunners would simply be swapping one talented youngster in the Norway international for another. The Germany international hasn’t exactly hit the ground running with the Black and Yellow outfit, but, his last season with Bayer Leverkusen was something to behold.

The 24-year-old scored 10 goals and assisted a further 17 across all competitions, a year that saw the Signal Iduna Park giants chase the midfielder.

It seems there will be one in and one out come July as Arsenal look to replace their 22-year-old gem, who has proven a priceless January addition.

In other news, one ace has returned ahead of Thursday’s Europa League tie versus Villareal.
