The Gunners interested in signing Julian Brandt

Sun 25 April 2021 | 17:38

Arsenal has shown interest in signing Julian Brandt again in the summer.

There have been reports suggesting that the

Gunners

are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund’s

Julian Brandt

after their failed attempt in the past.

The last time was in January when the club made a move to bring the Germany international, but instead, they signed Martin Odegaard on loan in the mid-season transfer window. It will be hard for Arteta’s side to make Odegaard’s move permanent, so the club may retry signing Borussia Dortmund’s star Julian Brandt, according to the reports.

The club’s director has talked about the owners’ intention of investing in the transfer window, making the transfer talks more serious.

“We're always willing to provide resources for Arsenal Football Club, as we have supported the club the last several years,”

Kroenke told a fans

forum.

“I think the question you're asking also resides in a much larger question about football. If you're always going to be recruiting the next person to pump tens and hundreds of millions into a club that is not a sustainable operation across Europe anywhere.

“For us, I think we're not afraid to be aggressive at different points in time. Hopefully you've noticed over the last few transfer windows we have been more aggressive.

“That was part of the discussion we had internally amongst the six clubs in the UK and in Europe. The model that is currently out there is not sustainable over the long-term, and that should very much worry supporters.

“While the answer to your question 'who is the next wealthy person who can come in and just funnel money into the club' and I don't think that's the right answer for Arsenal Football Club or football as a whole.”

Brandt has only made 16 appearances for the German side in the current season, making it more possible for a transfer to happen in the next transfer window.
