Something has to give with Arsenal´s young German forward Serge Gnabry, or the player that showed such promise before he picked up an injury and missed the whole of last season. At the moment, Gnabry cannot even get on to the West Brom bench and the loan deal that was supposed to bring him the regular football that would help to progress his career has so far yielded just three appearances and 12 Premier League minutes.
Some Arsenal fans might have thought that Arsene Wenger might want to bring him back to north London to help the Gunners cope with the mini injury crisis to players like Walcott, Ramsey and the Ox that has left Wenger with a big problem on the right flank, where Gnabry would normally operate.
But as reported by The Mirror that is not going to happen, as the boss explained that loan deals between EPL clubs do not work that way.
He said, “Serge Gnabry is on loan for the season. We cannot get him back before the transfer period. Loans between Premier League clubs are season-long loan.”
Even if we could bring him back though, I do not think that the boss would have much use for him because Gnabry is clearly not in the sort of form or even physical shape to help us. He seems to have gone onto the doldrums and needs to snap out of it.
Wenger went on, “I heard that Tony Pulis is not happy with him. He has to change the opinion of Tony Pulis because I think that Serge Gnabry has the quality to play in the Premier League. He has shown that.
“It’s good that he faces this kind of battle because it will make him stronger if the turns the opinion of Tony Pulis around. I hope that he’s facing the challenge and is putting the effort in.”
Perhaps the right wing problems of Arsenal right now will ring a bell with Gnabry and get him thinking that he would have had a great opportunity if he was still in our playing squad, but if he does not pull his socks up quickly then he might never play for the Gunners again.
What do you think of the Gnabry situation Gooners?
