Euro Paper Talk: Arsenal players talking about signing German schemer

Date published: Friday 1st January 2021 12:27

Arsenal are looking to add some inventiveness to their side this month and have targeted a Borussia Dortmund man, while a Manchester United pair are on the verge of leaving Old Trafford, all in the Euro papers.


Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta may have said that clearing the decks was his priority this January, but they could still make January additions.

And , Sport Bild’s Christian Falk reports that Arteta is interested in making a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Brandt.

According to Falk the Gunners have already made moves behind the scenes to make a transfer happen this month.

Dortmund though do not want to see the 24-year-old leave and Arsenal face a battle to sign the Germany international.

The report claims that Brandt is already being discussed in the Gunners dressing room. He would add some genuine creativity to a midfield which has struggled to create chances this season.

“We know that the scouts have already made important moves and the club is also actively discussing it in the dressing room,” Falk told BILD.

Falk does though state that January may come too soon for the deal and a summer move may well be more likely.

That could see the Gunners turn to Real Madrid’s Isco or Sevilla’s Joan Jordan as they look to add some guile, as well as offloading a string of unwanted fringe players.
