Arsenal receive boost in their bid to re-sign Serge Gnabry from Bayern Munich

Arsenal have received a boost in their attempts to sign Serge Gnabry this summer – six years after deciding to let him go.

The Germany international has grown into one of the most dynamic wingers in the world but could be available in the summer transfer window. The 26-year-old has just one year left on his contract at Bayern Munich and has yet to sign a new deal.

That leaves the Bundesliga champions in a precarious situation, as they will not want to lose the forward for free next year. It means that they might be prepared to sell – if the price is right.

And Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in snapping up the former Hoffenheim ace, who spent five years coming up through the academy at Hale End. However, he never truly made an impression at the Gunners and made just 10 appearances in the Premier League.

A failed loan at West Brom saw the German return to his homeland when Werder Bremen snapped him up before Bayern Munich signed him in a shock move. That has turned out to be a masterstroke, though, with Gnabry going on to become a huge star for club and country.

Arsenal, though perhaps sheepishly looking to convince the winger to return to the Emirates, have received a boost in the race to sign him back. According to Marca, Real Madrid have pulled out of the battle this summer.

That is big news for Mikel Arteta, who might not have the resources to convince a player to snub a move to the Bernabeu over Arsenal. Instead, it has given the Gunners a clear path to go ahead and pursue a transfer.

Amid reports that a bid worth £34million might be enough to prise Gnabry away, Bayern president Herbert Hainer told Sport BILD: “We've been in talks with Serge for a long time, unfortunately, there hasn't been an agreement yet. There are a few different ideas. We're working on that."
