‘Focused on different targets’ – Romano claims Arsenal not currently chasing explosive forward

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal are not trying to sign former Gunner Serge Gnabry this summer, despite his current situation.

The German international has just 12 months remaining on his current contract with Bayern Munich, and has supposedly turned down a number of offers from his current club to extend that deal.

The above has led to a number of rumours of offers for his signature, with our name a regular to pop up in connection with a move due to our previous time together in north London, but Fabrizio Romano insists that he is not amongst the players we are chasing at present.

Maybe the fact that we failed to earn Champions League football means that we don’t have the means to convince him to return, and are simply not wasting our time, but I would have thought that he should have been high on our radar if a deal felt possible.

Gnabry would have been an improvement on Raphinha, who no longer seems to be his way to the Emirates this summer. He is an explosive forward with a keen eye for goal, who can play anywhere in attack.

It feels as though we have been acting quickly in the market so far, with Gabriel Jesus expected to be announced any day now, but it is unclear who else, other than Lisandro Martinez, that we are working on signing after seemingly missing out on Raphinha.

Just Arsenal Show – Our optimistic Gooner Matt Smith talks about Arsenal’s positive transfer window

Tags Serge Gnabry


  1. Slowly becoming annoyed with arsenal again. We started of out the gates well and now it seems like we are up to our old tricks. Linked with everyone under the sun. Send in super low ball offers which are no where near the selling clubs valuation. Slight improvement until the club says go away or a bigger club comes in with a decent offer.

    1 signing since ethe start of the window is actually official whilst spurs already have 3 or 4. Why do arsenal always have to be last and miss out.

    Just go get gnabry for 50m or less he is a steal.

    1. That is not the point of a transfer window is not about the quantity it’s about quality plus it irks me that you’re comparing the club with spurs in terms of transfers We still HAVE OVER A MONTH LEFT FOR BUSINESS FOR GODSAKES… Sometimes a feel like some fans want transfers just for dopamine

      1. I just want business done and dusted. I can’t think of a window in recent times we have strengthened immediately in all areas that we need.

        Your right it’s not about quantity. Irs all about quality. But we often get left with none.

        I’m sure you agree we need a QUALITY LB, amd a QUALITY CM atleast. Not to mention a new winger also?

        We have been linked with teilemens sin January. We are linked with the Ajax CB/LB and got out bid with raphinah. Too much dithering IMHO. With both raphina and the Ajax full buck we have had to improve our bids 2 or 3 times and we are miles away from the clubs valuation. Meaning Chelsea and utd have been able to swoop in and make it difficult.

  2. I’ve said it before many times that Gnabry is not coming. End of story. On to a fit and proper midfielder please

    N.B: No Ruben Neves. He’s slow
    No Tielemans except to replace Xhaka. He’s also slow

  3. I hope the reason we’re not interested is because he’s already told us no, or we don’t want to pay his wages – I’d hate to think we hadn’t explored the possibility of signing him

    1. @Davi
      I’m pretty sure the reason we didn’t try to sign him is, he’s not interested in signing on to an experiment after achieving what he has at Bayern. He’d be taking a step backwards in his career. IJS

      1. You’re probably right, but if you don’t ask, you don’t get.. Some players would like the challenge of being a major figure in raising a team like ours to the level of a title winning side, especially now he has nothing much to really prove. Anyway, I reckon we probably have made contact decided not to bother
