The Gunners enjoyed a turnaround in form over the festive period with Mikel Arteta reportedly keen to add to his creative options to keep that run going.
Norwich star Emi Buendia is reportedly a top target for the club and is currently priced at 11/8 to join Arsenal before the January deadline. However, a £40m valuation is likely to prove problematic with alternative solutions likely to be sought this month, according to The Mirror.
24-year-old Brandt could be a more attainable option with Football.London reporting Arsenal have already sounded out Borussia Dortmund over the possibility of a permanent move this month.

Dortmund are reportedly ready to cash in for a fee of £22.5m with the club’s sporting director Michael Zorc failing to rule out a move this month.
“My years of activity have taught me that I don’t rule anything out at the beginning of a transfer period,” he recently told Sport Bild.
Sky Bet price Brandt joining Arsenal – either on loan or a permanent deal – at 5/2 with arch-rivals Tottenham an outside bet at 20/1.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Julian Draxler and Real Madrid midfielder Isco have both been linked with loan moves to north London. The Spaniard is currently 4/1 to join the Gunners with Everton the current favourites at 2/1.
Julian Brandt next club odds (via Sky Bet):
- Arsenal 5/2
