Arsenal could land a bargain buy after Bayern asking price reveal

Arsenal are believed to be keen on a reunion with Serge Gnabry this summer, and will have been boosted by reports of the asking price set by Bayern Munich.

The German giants signed the forward from Werder Bremen back in 2017, a year after he had left north London on a permanent deal due to a lack of first-team opportunities.

We have since regretted our failure to bring him into the first-team and develop him as we should have, with him becoming a superstar for club and country in Germany. We could get the chance to bring him back to the Emirates this summer however, with him seemingly unwilling to extend his current contract in Bavaria.

It remains to be seen whether he would be willing to return to Arsenal this summer, but with Bayern claimed to be willing to sell for just €40 Million I struggle to believe that we won’t at least enter into negotiations in an attempt to sign him.

Gnabry has proved that he can be extremely effective in attack, with a great goalscoring record from the wings, and he could well come in and take up the central striker role for our side also.

Naturally we are unlikely to be unopposed in our bid to sign him this summer, but he may feel like he has unfinished business with us, and the future certain looks bright in north London at present.

Do you believe we could lure him back to play under Mikel Arteta ahead of the new campaign?

  1. Chances are slim as there will be better teams who’ll want him, but I think we have points in our favour:

    1. The arsenal connection
    2. He would be able to play as a centre forward
    3. He’d undoubtedly have a very key role in the squad, most likely our best/must important player

    Of course it’s not really possible to know what his true motivations are, but I’ve read that those three factors could be of value to him.

  2. If we are interested in signing Gnabry then I only hope it doesn’t turn into a saga. Don’t offer them an insulting opening bid just offer them the asking price, if they say no then walk away . Other clubs seem to sign players without all the drama that we come across. We need to get signings in early and not be without them for the first half a dozen games while they settle in.

  3. he has one year left on his contract

    if he really wants to return….

    we should sign him for free

  4. Letting him go was just another one of Arsenal’s big mistakes. The trouble is Wenger got it wrong on a number of occasions. After a great Olympics he(Gnarby) should have then been drafted into the 1st team on a permanent basis but instead they decided to sell him off to W. Bremen for peanuts who in turn then made a mint on his sale to B. Munich and true to fashion of other mistakes he’s never looked back & has won a few trophies for his troubles! If he’s gonna b available then they should b looking at getting him on a free next season if he’s still around. Otherwise they’ll end up paying almost 10 more than what they sold him to Bremen for. I could never understand why Walcott & Iwobi were kept & he let go.

  5. This is a non-starter. He’s 26 and is an elite level player. Why would he come to a Europa League club when he’s hitting his prime? Let’s be realistic people.

  6. But he has nothing to lose in case we want him back since he has won almost everything with Bayan now he has to come and do the unfinished business with Arsenal.Welcome Gnabri

    1. you’re suggesting he’s bored of winning and playing at the highest level of club football? I doubt that. Real Madrid have links with him too. Be in UCL semifinals/finals every other season or scrap for a top 4 spot in England? Not much of a choice to make.

        1. it’s Real Madrid. He’d still be playing in a new league and with other top class players. You are trying to make it sound like he would consider coming back to us, but he is not. We aren’t good enough to attract a player of his caliber.

  7. why would he want anything to do with this club considering his original stint here and the dire tactics on offer; not to mention, the fact that we aren’t in the CL due to our manager constantly tripping over his own dick…Wenger butchered this relationship when he didn’t read the room prior to or following Serge’s Olympic adventures

  8. Serge Gnabry plays the same position as Bukayo Saka, who, unless he leaves, is going to start every Arsenal match he’s fit for until he retires or leaves. If Arsenal sign Gnabry, who is a first XI player for one of the best teams in the world, and have him compete directly with Mikel Arteta’s #1, first on the team sheet guy, Arsenal will have another Pepe situation on their hands.

    Nicholas Pepe, in the one season he got regular minutes, outplayed Saka on fewer minutes. Pepe is not a flop, he is simply not allowed to compete on even terms with Arteta’s favorite player.

    That is not a criticism, Arteta made a choice to go with the development of an Arsenal academy player over the skills and quality of a proven star who was signed by the previous manager. It happens all the time in football. Unai Emery played Mateo Guendouzi in virtually every midfield position over Aaron Ramsey, Mezut Ozil, and Mohamed Elneny; all of whom, at the time, were better players than he was. Guendouzi has developed into a very good central midfielder. Arteta chose to force him out after a clash, but what Emery did and what Arteta is doing, is much the same.

    Arsenal are not yet at the point where one or two signings will make them competitive for the title. When they are, signing a Serge Gnabry-type spot-light-tested star makes sense. Until then, it would be wiser to sign younger, up and coming players that fit the profile of players Arteta can manage and develop successfully.
    Reiss-Nelson will be returning from loan, so he could be an option on the right. Brian Mbueno from Bentford might be a good option as well. He is 22, has Premier League Experience, and both scores and provides assists.

    Failing that, Arsenal might sign a veteran star with some miles left on his tires to provide quality in depth. Lucas Moura or Angel Di Maria come to mind.

    1. Fudge you sincerely, please go and support a club that doesn’t have the history of winning titles like Arsenal. We need elite players and competition in every position if we are claiming to be an elite club. I don’t want Arsenal to become a mediocre club under this current ownership and management. There’s no desire or ambition worthy of our history if we don’t get to sign any elite players.

      1. uhhhh the player has to want to come. We haven’t finished above 5th for several seasons now. We are solidily a Europa League club and will not be able to attract a player like Gnabry. It’s more of a fact than something to be mad at a fan about. Yes, we need to be ambitious, but nothing can be done if the player doesn’t want to come.

        1. We should try first instead of immediately dismissing the possibility of it happening. That is the wrong mentality.

  9. The signing of Serge Gnabry would be a positive for Arsenal FC. I hope it eventuates.
