Ex-Gunner open to a return to England amidst interest from Arsenal

Arsenal could get Serge Gnabry back as Bayern Munich struggles to get the attacker on a new deal.

The German got his first team break at the Emirates, but he struggled to make an impact in England, including while on loan at West Brom.

Since he returned to Germany, he has become a global superstar, and he has won all the club trophies available to him at Bayern.

The Bavarians still want him in their squad beyond his current deal, which expires in 2023, but they are struggling to get him to commit to a new one.

Sport1 is now reporting that he is open to a new challenge, which has made several clubs become interested in a move for him.

David Alaba is trying to convince him to move to Real Madrid, but the report adds that he would consider a return to the Premier League.

This would be a major boost to Arsenal’s chances of signing him, and they can now act on this development.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Gnabry’s career after leaving Arsenal has no doubt made us question why we didn’t insist on keeping him.

The attacker clearly had potential when he was at the Emirates, but things just didn’t work out as we expected at the time.

If truly he wants a return to England, then we must act fast and not miss a second chance to sign him.

  1. Top player and probably still has a soft spot for us.
    But as realists know, he will NOT be coming back to us. Not a cat in hell’s chance, more is the pity.

  2. “made us question why we didn’t insist on keeping him”.

    The reason has been out there and I don’t know why it keeps being made to look like Arsenal/Wenger wanted to let him go. Gnabry was tapped indirectly by Bayern and he made up his mind to not sign a contract extension (like many players increasingly do). It was a case of get whatever you can or lose him for free in a year’s time.

    The increasing number of players who move on a free transfer (even in clubs that many felt were “ruthless” – whatever that means) shows that their is little clubs can do when players decide not to renew contracts. The best option is usually to cash in, if the player is even open to accepting a transfer rather than sitting out his contract for a bumper free transfer. Look at Mbape and how he squeezed every penny out of PSG or he would have moved to Madrid for free. Rudiger, Pogba, Dybala, (Alaba, Wijnaldum, last season) etc. are all multi-million pound worth players that are all free agents and playing for the supposed “ruthless” clubs/managers. Many more (Salah, Lewandoski, Jesus, etc.) are in the last year of their contracts, yet, their “ruthless” clubs/managers have been unable to tie them down.

    Wenger explained all these while Arsenal battled with player contracts (from a weak financial bargaining position) and why it would become the norm but the media brainwashed many to rather blame him. Reality is what it is and Arsenal will face many of these situations in the future. Better be ready for it.

  3. Th14-TW14, spot on my friend.
    Gnarby was offered a lucrative contract to stay, but his head had been turned.
    If we resigned him, where would he play and in place of whom?
    I have always thought that, if a player leaves our club, then that’s it.
    Hleb was a classic example.

    1. Well, wenger would say that because we looked stupid losing a player who quickly turned out to be top class after leaving.
      On the surface, it looked to me like he wasn’t getting many chances, in spite of some very promising performances, had a bad loan and then got cold feet on the idea of staying. May have thought he was going to be waiting forever, similar to martinez – of course I don’t know the truth of it, maybe wenger is 100% right but I wouldn’t take it at face value.

      1. “it looked to me like he wasn’t getting many chances, in spite of some very promising performances”.

        This isn’t true. He just broke into the team and was in all the games until a bad injury which kept him out for a year. On his return, he went on loan to Westbrom and wasn’t given game time. He returned but refused an extension to his contract. Players also have a say in what they want and clubs/managers may not always convince them to remain with them. Is Pogba not getting ‘game time’? Or Rüdiger? Players move for many reasons and that’s just it.

          1. Bad memory Ken. The game against Swansea sticks out for me as the one that should have announced him, but I’d forgotten how bad his injuries were after.
            You’re right though, I don’t know all the history.

  4. For now we need main striker who has exprience and keep nketiah for back up

  5. Gnabry can play in several positions upfront. His figures are impressive. Sign him if he wants the move
