Out of contract, no sign of him wanting to sign a new one. Any fee at this point would be good.

Find it strange that he'd want to go to Bayern though, should look for a lower club and establish himself for a few years. Not risk getting bumped around from club to club.

Sad if this goes through but there are other young players we have who are promising that play in those forward positions.

I would have liked Gnabry to stay but he is in a position where he doesnt have to renew and is still enormously rated in Germany. He doesnt have the same acclaim here that he does in his home country. He is more likely to get chances of game time.

What this does, additionally with Campbell departing, is give opportunities to other younger players like Willock. Also possible signing.

Sad if it goes through but only ourselves to blame tbh. I assume Arsène loaned out Joel to give Serge minutes but now our hand has been forced by Bayern.

He should be 15m+ but last year of contract means we won't get much, maybe 10m.

EDIT: Apparently the fee is 10m euro...

Was in last year of contract so was obviously going to cash in on him. Not overly fussed to be honest.

Wenger likes Iwobi, Theo and Ox (Rightly or wrongly) more than he Gnabry. It's as simple as that, Gnabry staying here will just halt his progression further.

Apparently the deal will be announced shortly.

Not too upset about this. We stuck by him through the injuries and sent him out on loan but he didn't perform/wasn't fit. He scored a few at the Olympics but he did it against the easy teams. He still has a long way to go I think. 10 million for him is good, especially since he can leave on a free next summer.

Exactly. And don't forget we have Chris Willock and Reiss Nelson, big talents who are going to need game time. Keeping Gnabry would only have made sense if he had a chance of supplanting Iwobi/Ox/Walcott.

Not sure why he wouldn't just go out on loan this year and leave on a free next season, if he is going straight out on loan from bayern anyways.
