Arsenal have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Brandt, as a possible replacement for Martin Odegaard.
According to Fussball Transfers, the midfielder is up for sale at Dortmund with Arsenal credited with an interest as technical director Edu ‘eyes’ a £22.5million deal.
Despite wearing no.19 at Dortmund, for the Germany national team he wears no.10 and believes that particular number suits him.
“The number 10 has great importance in football, and also in the national team. I will try to grow with the task and give my best,” Brandt has previously said.
“I had very little to say about it. I was asked and accepted it. It’s a very honorable task, but I have broad shoulders, and I think it suits me.”
At Arsenal, the previous no. 10 was Mesut Ozil. The Gunners have been searching for an Ozil replacement ever since he joined Fenerbahce in January and in Brandt they may have found who they’ve been looking for.
