Arsenal could reportedly sign Borussia Dortmund star Julian Brandt for as little as £17.3million this summer.
Arsenal are in the market for a creative midfielder and want to make Martin Odegaard’s loan move permanent. However, all reports suggest Real Madrid are not willing to sell Odegaard and it is also not clear whether the Gunners would be able to afford the Norwegian if he was for sale.
Germany international Brandt was linked with Arsenal in the January transfer window before Odegaard joined on loan.
Brandt has struggled in the Bundesliga this season, scoring two goals and contributing just two assists in 28 appearances.
The 24-year-old has often had to settle for a substitute role under Edin Terzic.
But Arsenal could offer Brandt the chance to reignite his career if reports from Germany are to be believed.
