ARSENAL are reportedly interesting in signing Julian Brandt from Borussia Dortmund.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is desperate to sign a new creative playmaker this month.

According to Football London, Arsenal are considering a permanent move for Brandt.

Borussia Dortmund are reportedly prepared to offload him for a fee of £22 million.

The report states that the German star would be 'willing' to move to the Emirates.

Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has refused to rule out a move for Brandt this month.

He said: "My years of activity have taught me that I don't rule anything out at the beginning of a transfer period."

Reports had claimed that Arsenal and Dortmund were in advanced talks over the move.

But Zorc – who was once an Arsenal target himself – confirmed there has no been no contact.

"I read that too, I can't say more about it. Nobody has contacted us and there is nothing on the table – and not even in the fax machine."

Brandt has made 22 appearances in all competitions this season for the German side, who he joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2019.
