Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry is reportedly linked with a homecoming return to the Emirates Stadium this summer, as contract talks continue to stall with the German champions… 

THE LOWDOWN: EXIT LINKS

The sensational Bundesliga forward, out of contract in 2023, has been at the centre of exit reports recently as his club still fail to agree terms over an extension.

Bayern, as a result, are currently under some pressure and face the possibility of having to sell him for a profit in the next transfer window while they still can.

Gnabry has no shortage of Premier League suitors, with both Arsenal and Tottenham reportedly interested in his services and the Gunners strongly want him back.

THE LATEST: GNABRY ON SHORTLIST

According to Turkish transfer journalist Ekrem Konur, the German wizard is currently on the shortlist of the Gunners hierarchy for this summer.

However, Konur goes on to state that the German champions Munich are still continuing talks with the player over a contract extension.

This news follows reports from Spanish outlet SPORT, who claim that the 26-year-old is the subject of interest from Juventus over a possible move in the summer transfer window joined by his former club and Real Madrid.

THE VERDICT: DREAM RETURN

The serious competition for Gnabry’s signature could certainly drive up his price tag with interest also coming from European heavyweights Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus.

Regardless of the £63m-rated Germany ace entering the final year of his deal, it may still be an uphill battle to seal an agreement with the Gunners.

Previously dubbed “world-class” by former Spurs keeper Paul Robinson, and “phenomenal” by Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, it is easy to why he is linked with a dream return to the Emirates.

The 26-year-old has amassed an astonishing 17 goals and ten assists in 44 appearances across all competitions thus far this term, propelling himself to phenomenal levels and becoming one of the continent’s most destructive wingers.

In 170 appearances for the German giants, he’s recorded 64 goals and 40 assists further highlighting how much he’s improved in front of goal since his early year struggles in north London.

If the 31-time German international, does make the unexpected move to the Emirates this summer, it would indeed be a sensational homecoming and he’ll return a much more complete player than when he left in 2016.
