In the ambition to increase the depth of their squad for the 2023/2024 season, the London team Arsenal is intending to recruit midfielder Julian Brandt from Borussia Dortmund club.
Moving to Dortmund from Bayer Leverkusen in 2019, Julian Brandt has rapidly advanced his career in what is considered a “launching pad” for young stars.
This season, the 26-year-old midfielder showed an impressive performance. After 31 appearances for Dortmund, Brandt has scored 9 goals and contributed 5 more assists. This form combined with Julian Brandt’s contract with the German team due to expire in 2024 has made him a ‘very hot’ name in the transfer market this summer.
According to news hunter Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal have been tracking Dortmund’s versatile midfielder Julian Brandt for a long time. The Gunners are poised to make a shock move to Brandt next summer in an attempt to increase the depth of their squad, especially as they are almost certain to return to the UEFA Champions League arena for the first time. after 6 years of waiting.
Despite owning top attacking stars including Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard, Arteta still wants to own Brandt after witnessing his sublime performances at Dortmund.
Notably, in addition to the role of a good midfielder, the former Bayer Leverkusen star can also take on the position of a winger or play as a number 6 if needed. These advantages may have convinced Arteta coach.
In addition to Arsenal, Tottenham are also said to be interested in Julian Brandt. Both will have to compete fiercely to get the signature of the star born in 1996, although the amount they will have to spend for this midfielder is not too large, only about 25 million euros.
