The German international, who has played just 36 minutes of football in Dortmund's first three competitive games this season, has been linked with a move away from the club.
However, according to Sport1, the 26-year-old has turned down interest from Italy, as he wants to assert himself under Edin Terzic, who has replaced Marco Rose as head coach at Signal Iduna Park.
Brandt has two years left on his contract with 'Die Schwarzgelben'.
