Arsenal opinion: Why Arsenal should sign Julian Brandt

Arsenal were in the hunt for a winger in January but failed in their attempts to bring in Ivan Perisic and Yannick Carrasco. The Gunners’ lack of options in the wide areas are a concern to Unai Emery, who has been forced to play the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Aaron Ramsey on the flanks.

Arsenal have been linked with Nicolas Pepe along with Perisic and Carrasco but should seriously consider the option of bringing in Julian Brandt from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

According to BILD, Julian Brandt has a release clause of just €25million. The clause was put in after the German extended his contract with the club last year.

Brandt was one of the shining lights in Germany’s dismal performance in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The 22-year-came on as a substitute in every game and performed brilliantly.

Brandt has been impressive in the Bundesliga this campaign, having scored 4 goals and picked up 7 assists in 19 starts for the club. Although Brandt has played most of his career on the wing, his current boss Peter Bosz has used him more centrally, giving him a free rein.

As a left winger, Brandt loves to take on his opponent defender before cutting in and unleashing a strike at goal or picking a teammate in a better position with a defense-splitting pass.

Brandt’s quickness comes as a surprise due to his 6ft 1in build and he can withstand the challenges from opposition defenders without losing the ball. The combination of his speed and power along with his exceptional dribbling skills makes him a brilliant addition to any team.

The 22-year-old averages 1.7 shots per game and 2.5 key passes per game so far this season. The German international averages 44.5 passes every game, 2.5 of which are long balls. With over 80% passing accuracy predominantly from the wing, a player like Brandt will fit into Arsenal’s passing style perfectly.

Conclusion

A release clause of €25million for Julian Brandt is a joke and Leverkusen have made a massive contractual mistake with the youngster. Arsenal would be making a big mistake by not going for Julian Brandt in the summer. Unai Emery should push hard for the board to bag the youngster in the summer.
