The most recent teams to contemplate a move for Julian Brandt, a midfield player for Borussia Dortmund, are Arsenal and Newcastle United.
English clubs have long held Brandt in high regard, and European footballers like Jurgen Klopp are among his many supporters.
Nevertheless, Brandt’s midweek performance against the Magpies has impressed both Arsenal and Newcastle, according to a report published today in The Mirror.
At around £22 million, Brandt, a 27-year-old, became a key member of Dortmund, a German team. Although The Mirror believes that he signed a new contract that would last until 2026, Arsenal may still make an offer despite this.
During the January transfer window, the Gunners are attempting to strengthen their squad. After a fantastic start to the season, Mikel Arteta’s team is once again a contender for the Premier League championship.
The signing of Julian Brandt from Dortmund is of interest to Arsenal.
It should come as no surprise that Arsenal is looking to add players in order to unseat Manchester City atop the standings.
Last year, they were very close, but in the end, they drifted apart. After a fruitful summer of transfers, Arteta and Edu will be thinking about ways to steer clear of a repeat performance this season.
January is usually an expensive month, and given the reports that Dortmund is not interested in trading Brandt, this could be a challenging trade to make.
But there’s no harm in reaching out to these players because, in the end, the best teams need these kinds of “great” players.
Arsenal needs to make sure that, come March and April, they are still pursuing things. The best way to make sure that happens might be to sign someone like Brandt.
