Arsenal Transfer News : The club’s interest in the player is believed to be genuine with the side working hard of making a transfer plausible.
With Mikel Arteta talking on a slew of occasions about how Arsenal were set to be engaged during the ongoing January transfer window, its no surprise that a string of players have already been linked to the club. With the club in a turmoil at the moment as it finds itself languishing in 13th name, the side is said to be extremely eager to overhaul its squad.
With the club already confirming its first bit of business with Sead Kolasinac departing as the side looks to trim its massive squad, its clear that there’s smoke to the fire of Arsenal being busy in the window. And one player who is being spoken about heavily in the club’s circles is Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Brandt.
Arsenal Players Start Discussing Julian Brandt Transfer
Sport BILD’s Christian Falk, someone who is well versed with matters in German football has gone onto affirm that Arsenal are indeed serious in their interest for Brandt. He further went onto state that Arsenal players have already started talking about Brandt and how he could potentially fit into the side’s ranks.
Falk tweeted on Tuesday: “@Arsenal is interested in @JulianBrandt The transfer is already a topic in the dressing room.”
Brandt who had made a foray into Borussia Dortmund back in 2019 from Bayer Leverkusen has already played 64 matches for the club with him scoring 8 goals in that period. However, he’s grown out of contention this season with the player being left on the periphery to tale part in a measly 6 matches.
“Well, we have a large squad, we knew that and a lot of things we wanted to do in the summer, we couldn’t accomplish for different reasons,” Arteta had previously said when asked about his side’s transfer strategy.
“There are some players that are going to go on loan, they are going to leave, and that’s the priority at the moment.”
Arsenal are also ardently interested in Isco, Riqui Puig and Emiliano Buendia as the club looks to solve the predicament of its ongoing attacking crisis.
