Arsenal to battle Newcastle for Bundesliga midfield star wanted by Liverpool: report

Arsenal and Newcastle are reportedly keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund and Germany attacking midfielder Julian Brandt.

The 27-year-old – who scored in Dortmund’s 2-0 home Champions League win over Newcastle on Tuesday night – has previously been a target for Liverpool.

Brandt joined BVB from fellow Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen for around £22m in 2019; he has made almost 200 appearances for the Black and Yellows.

The former Wolfsburg youngster signed a contract extension until 2026 in April this year, but that doesn’t appear to have deterred the likes of Arsenal and Newcastle from weighing up a move.
