Arsenal gets some encouragement in their pursuit of Bundesliga star

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Julian Brandt in the last few days, and it seems that they might get their man if they try hard.

We reported yesterday that the Arsenal dressing room is already discussing the possibility of the German attacker joining them this month, his team seems to have encouraged the Gunners to come forward with an offer.

Christian Falk who reported Arsenal’s interest has once again revealed an interview quote from Borussia Dortmund’s Head of Sport, Michael Zorc who says that he has heard about the reported Arsenal interest.

However, the Gunners haven’t tabled an offer for him yet and he didn’t rule out the possibility of the Germany international moving this month either.

Falk Tweeted: “Michael Zorc, Head of Sport @bvb, about the rumors of a @Arsenal interest in @JulianBrandt: “I read that too, I can’t say more about it. there is nothing on the table – and not even in the fax machine.“ what Zorc does not say: Brandt is not for sale…”

Brandt has been one of the best talents in Germany for some time now, however, he has lost his place in the team this season.

The likes of Jadon Sancho and Giovanni Reyna have made it hard for him to get first-team chances, but he would be a solid addition to the Arsenal team.

    Can’t be serious. Not another mediocre player. Edu has to do better. Promote Azeez to senior squad instead. Arsenal must stop wasting Kroenke family funds.

      “Arsenal must stop wasting Kroenke family funds”

      They are not his “funds” they are his profit made off Arsenal…

  2. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    That’s a ridiculous comment in two regards Wayne…not only is he far from a mediocre player, which isn’t to suggest I desperately want him here, even though I think he would be a welcome addition, and how could we possibly waste “Kroenke Family funds” considering the fact that he nor his family has spent a single penny of their own personal wealth on this club…his original investment has quadrupled and the self-sustaining model means that he never dips into his own pocket for player acquisitions

    I’d rather us stick to England. Our scouting for foreign players has been pretty bad for years. Actually I guess our England scouting is bad too since it’s just getting the Chelsea old boys. Brandt is known for being inconsistent though, and ive never been too impressed when he’s played for Germany. It’s a signing I quickly see being a disappointment. Pretty sad we didnt nab Hojberg when he was available. Think he would’ve been a far better signing than some of the others we’ve done lately.

      Exactly RHS, Recruit local, even if the player is foreign they should already be used to EPL.
      AKA Liverpool and Man U do this.
      We have had so many flops and average players coming in who seemed to be stars before we signed them.
      to name but a few; Kola, Martesaka, Ozil, Papa, Pepe, Mustafi and even Xhaka to an extend.

      We should get battle hardened but technical players from the championship or EPL

    In clips, he looks like a more refined version of Willock. Lumbering style of running with the ball, bit like Yaya Toure. Obviously he looked good in what he did but no idea how consistent he is, and not really a no.10 type of player.
    Doesn’t look like the right move to me, but that’s based purely on a few videos so I’m sure others will know better (hopefully the arsenal transfer team at least!)

    If we do sign somebody from the german league would prefer Sabitzer, he seems to be a quality CM

  6. RedGinseng says:

    Why are you all getting so excited? Dortmund havent had any approaches from Arsenal, much less an offer of any kind..and other clubs are likely to be interested – Bayer may even want him back. Who knows?

    Love how some ‘dressing room’ speculation triggers the peanut gallery.

    Listen Edu… What we need now is Emil buendia

  8. Ben proper says:

    But if cash has been injected for spending then go for hossem Aouar
