Should Arsenal be considering Gnabry’s early return?

Serge Gnabry’s minimum fee release clause has reportedly been revealed as a lowly £6.8 Million, and the Metro has hinted that Arsenal should make up for their mistake and bring him back.

The German international left us in the summer to join Werder Bremen for an undisclosed fee, a fee which varied wildly between £2-8 Million depending on which publication you read, but the higher ones simply have to be untrue if his selling-on fee is as low as £6.8 Million.

The winger has since impressed in the Bundesliga scoring seven goals and creating one, despite his side struggling in the bottom half of the table.

The 21 year-old’s impressive form even earned him a surprise call-up to the Germany senior side, in which he grasped with both hands, and netted himself a hat-trick against San Marino in the World Cup qualifiers.

Many Arsenal fans have seen the rise to fame of their former youngster with angst, and some would even call it a mistake to have let him go, but the fact of the matter was he was entering the final year of his contract, and wanted first-team assurances to stay put.

We granted his wish and allowed him to leave, and I can only imagine that whilst we would like to see the youngster return and live up to his potential in our beloved red shirt, that even you can admit that we simply cant guarantee him a first-team role.

We are set to welcome back Danny Welbeck any day now, as well as having Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Alex Iwobi, Lucas Perez, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez all sharing those wide roles which he would be hoping to play in.

Could Arsenal persuade Gnabry to return? Does his form in Germany mean he deserves a place in our playing squad?

    I’m a bit suspicious of the Bundasliga. We have a season were a newly promoted team goes against all odds to claim a title that no-one could foresee coming. This following season the Germans have a newly promoted team flying up the charts. Very coincidental. I think Leic got allot of ref justice in the second half of their season, just because it’s the best possible advertisement you can have for a league that is said to be the most competitive around. You can bet that the FA and the money-men were high fiving before rubbing hands on noses, in anticipation for the smell of green.

    If Gnabry would like to rejoin, he would play better in Premiere League, like Matic for Chelsea and Bruyne for Manchester City. But he would ask for first team guarantee and big salary. Also he comes, one of our wingers or attacking midfielder must go.

    Let the sleeping dog Lie!

  4. Juhi McLovin says:

    If the rumors are true and OX wants a pay raise, then sell him to City for silly money. No need for underpaid mercenaries in our team.

    Oh and replace him with Gnabry, who’s younger and even more profilic it seems.

    1. Juhi McLovin says:

      Overpaid*, not underpaid

  5. Jansen says:

    Gnarby won’t want to come back and Wenger does not rate him.

    1. Alexis the Great says:

      Wenger does rate him and didn’t want him to leave but he was in last year of his contract. But Gnabry won’t come back as he doesn’t want to sit on the bench

  6. Wilshegz says:

    if we must add any player to this squad now, he has to be a top top player not quantity like Elneny addition is.
