According to reports, Arsenal are among a host of top clubs keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen youngster Julian Brandt.

The youngster who has scored two goals and six assists in 12 games this term has caught Arsene Wenger attention with his fine form.
The Daily Mail via The Sun, claims Arsenal scouts were present at Leverkusen’s game against Cologne last weekend to watch Brandt.
Apparently, we weren’t the only Premier League club who had representatives present at the game as Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton also had scouts on ground to watch the young man.
Brandt is highly rated in Germany and could cost interested clubs a fortune.
The youngster plays as a winger but has also been central attacking midfielder for his club.
