Serge Gnabry has been mentioned in recent weeks as a transfer target for Arsenal. The North Londoners are looking into the potential of re-signing the 26-year-old, claims CBS correspondent Ben Jacobs.
Gnabry initially joined Arsenal for the 2011–12 season from the Bundesliga team VfB Stuttgart. He performed well for their youth teams, but could not nail a spot in the senior squad. Gnabry joined West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan in 2015 to obtain first-team experience. His fortunes did not change though, as manager Tony Pulis claimed that Gnabry was “not at the required level” to play for West Brom.
However, he rose above this slump. He moved to Werder Bremen in his home country and rediscovered his form. A move to giants Bayern Munich ensued, and Gnabry has been a regular for the Bundesliga champions since. He played a decisive role in their treble in 2020, including a poker against Arsenal’s biggest rival Tottenham Hotspur.
Gnabry And His Future
As his contract enters its final year, Bayern is in negotiations with the winger about a new agreement at the Allianz Arena. He is one of the finest right-wingers in the world now, and any team would love to have him.
With his contract ending, his old employers want to bring him back. But it will not be an easy job. In recent days, Chelsea appears to have entered the competition to sign the Bayern Munich star. The Blues “have started to explore” Gnabry’s position, according to the ever-reliant Fabrizio Romano. Journalist Charles Watts has also weighed on these rumours now.
So it feels like it’s gone round there, that they are maybe looking at Serge Gnabry if Raphinha indeed doesn’t happen. But it remains to be seen where they go now in terms of bringing a wide attacker, with Raphinha heading to Barcelona.
