Indeed, Arsenal are eager to sign a creative midfielder this summer. Emile Smith Rowe currently remains the club’s only player who can fulfil this role.

As reported by Football London, the likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka are all edging towards the exit door at the Emirates, with these sales likely to raise the Gunners chances of signing a quality creative player.

Indeed, the two playmakers were the club’s two main targets this transfer window. However, Brandt could be a dark horse option for the Gunners should they decide to pursue the German international.

Although the 25-year-old midfielder has not had the best of times with Dortmund, there’s no denying Brandt’s talent. The playmaker hit seven goals and 14 assists in his final season with Bayer Leverkusen.

With Arteta having an uncanny ability to get the best out of players, Brandt could find a new home in north London with Arsenal, and with Dortmund willing to sell, the Bremen-born star might be a cheap option for the Gunners this summer who could save the club millions.
