Arsenal could evidently make a move for Borussia Dortmund playmaker Julian Brandt if they fail to sign Martin Odegaard on a permanent basis this summer.
Real Madrid loanee Odegaard has established an immediate connection at the Emirates since arriving in January, however given his reported £300m release clause, the Gunners could battle to prise him away from the Spanish capital.
Moreover, with up to four Premier League clubs thought to be in the race for the Norway international, Mikel Arteta has been tipped to seek after deals for alternative number 10s, like Emiliano Buendia and Christopher Nkunku.
Presently, Sport Bild guarantee that Borussia Dortmund’s Brandt is another name on Arsenal’s wishlist, as the 24-year-old is in peril at the Westfalenstadion after a below par season.
The Germany international remains under control at Dortmund until the end of the 2023-24 season, however subsequent to struggling to perform all through the campaign, the Black and Yellow are evidently set to acknowledge a modest figure of £22.5m for Brandt this summer.
Brandt has scored two goals and one assist from 25 Bundesliga games this season, despite the fact that he has started only 15 of them.
