Bayern Munich and Germany star Serge Gnabry has just sent Arsenal fans into a tizzy following his latest post on social media.
The now-26-year-old, who can play anywhere across the front three, spent five years as a Gunner and everyone at the club saw that he was a special talent. However, Arsenal couldn’t convince him to extend his deal in 2016 and he was sold to Werder Bremen.
Just a year later, Gnabry joined Bayern Munich for just £6.6 million (Goal) and he has been absolutely incredible for them over the years.
He has played 159 times for the German champions so far and has directly been involved in 98 goals, which is a phenomenal return. He may move on from Bayern in the summer and his latest social media post has raised Arsenal fans’ hopes.
Serge Gnabry poses wearing a vintage Arsenal shirt
Gnabry, who is still adored by Arsenal supporters, caused a storm on Twitter and Instagram last night by posing in an Arsenal shirt.
He donned the Adidas home kit from the 1993/94 season, along with pictures of himself in retro Bayern Munich and Germany tops from the years gone by.
Unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans absolutely loved it and many begged him to come back to North London when he enters the final year of his contract in the summer transfer window.
Bayern are struggling to extend Gnabry’s contarct
After joining Bayern in the summer of 2017, Gnabry, who Rio Ferdinand called ‘world-class’, was given a new and improved four-year deal in 2019. That contract will expire in 2023 and the German giants are trying really hard to extend his stay at the club.
However, that is proving to be extremely difficult.
Kicker reported a few weeks ago that Bayern are yet to make progress in negotiations despite constantly being involved in talks with their star German attacker.
The report claims that salary and the term of the contract are proving to be an issue and that has made Arsenal fans urge Edu and Mikel Arteta to make a move for him.
That, however, is extremely unlikely to happen this summer.
