Arsenal-linked Julian Brandt is set to quit Borussia Dortmund in the summer as the Bundesliga team looks to shake up their roster ahead of next season.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder was signed by BVB from the German club Bayer Leverkusen in 2019 and has scored seven goals and grabbed eight assists in the Bundesliga this campaign.
Before the Londoners brought in Martin Odegaard from the La Liga giants Real Madrid last year, Julian was a player manager Mikel Arteta was closely monitoring as an alternative to the Norway international.
In spite of his current deal not running out until June 2024, according to Bild, Die Borussen are keen to let the player go at the end of the term and a deal with a Premier League outfit is likely.
The same report goes on to say that the star could be available for a sum of just £16.5 million as Borussia Dortmund boss Marco Rose wants to bring in some fresh legs for next season.
The Gunners may revisit a move for him this summer given their team’s lack of creativity and goals in the English top-flight this term, having netted the joint lowest amount in the Top 7.
