The young Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry has had a pretty torrid season due to injury. The knee injury he picked up over a year ago has put a big brake on his progress with the Gunners and barring a miracle in Arsene Wenger´s team selection for the FA cup final on Sunday, Gnabry will end the season without adding to his 18 first team appearances.
The 19-year old has been starring for the Arsenal under 21 side recently but as reported by the Daily Express, he was resigned to using our pre-season traing and matches to force his way back into the manager´s plans for the Premier League squad.
Gnabry said, “I’m hoping to make an impact in pre-season to get the manager to see that I’m back on track again. I’m hoping that this pre-season goes well for me and that I can establish myself.
“Pre-season is there for everyone to show what they’ve got. It’s the start of the season so everything is new. I’m hoping to make an impression.”
He will have a chance to impress before then, however, and that is great news for the player and the club alike. The dynamic youngster has been called up by Germany for the Euro under 21 championships this summer and he will be keen to play and prove that he can be an important figure for Arsenal next season.
Unlike players like Alexis who could do with a rest, playing in a summer tournament should be a big help to Gnabry who last season started to show real promise. So let´s hope the lad has a good tournament and is ready to shine for the Gunners.
