Arsenal want to sign Brandt

Arsenal are reportedly looking into a January move for Julian Brandt as they aim to improve their creativity in the final third.

The Gunners have experienced a horrendous league campaign and they have picked up only 17 points after 15 games into the season.

They recently ended a seven-match winless streak with a 3-1 triumph over Chelsea, but the hierarchy are still keen on bolstering the attack.

According to Bild, the north London outfit have their eye on Brandt, who has dropped down the selection order at Dortmund.

Brandt bagged seven goals and 13 assists from 42 appearances last season, but he has registered just one goal and an assist in 22 outings this term.

Unlike last season, half of those appearances have been cameos off the bench with Marco Reus and Gio Reyna favoured of him.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is desperate to land a new attacking midfielder with the club having managed just 15 goals from as many games.

Brandt has plenty of big-game experience and he could prove a quality signing for the Gunners in the upcoming transfer window.
