Arsenal could make a midfielder signing this month by bringing Borussia Dortmund star Julian Brandt to the club on a cut-price deal.

Brandt has been linked with a move to the Gunners during this window, along with Norwich City star Emilian Buendia with both players occupying similar positions. Head coach Mikel Arteta is set to add more creativity to his side and both players could offer that, able to play in an attacking midfield role as well as out wide.

If indeed Arteta does turn his attention elsewhere, it seems Brandt could be an option, and the German could save the Gunners a sizable chunk of cash. That’s because Dortmund could part ways with Brandt for around €25million (£22.57million), which is significantly lower than what the player is valued at.

The conservative valuation from Transfermarkt sits at €35million (£31.57million) which means any way you cut it, Arsenal would get getting themselves a bargain at the transfer fee quoted.

Dortmund actually bought Brandt for €25million (£22.57million) from Bayer Leverkusen in July 2019 and he has since made 46 league appearances, including 13 this season, also winning 35 caps for Germany across his still-young career.
