Tony Pulis refused to ‘get involved’ with any talk involving Serge Gnabry after Arsenal recalled him from his loan spell at West Brom… right before getting involved.

Gnabry only managed six appearances for the Baggies during his time there, was relegated to the youth squad and never got a full game for the first team. When the whole point of a loan move is for the player to gain experience and playing time, it’s understandable that Arsenal weren’t happy with their end of the deal.

Gnabry reminds me a lot of Oxlade-Chamberlain in the fact that he’s another young player with bags of potential, which hasn’t come to fruition. Of course, similar to the Ox, it could be argued that this is down to injuries.

Pulis refused to comment extensively on the matter but did mention that the forward came to West Brom already injured.

Whether this is true or not is unclear. However, what is clear is that he wasn’t gaining anything from being on loan.
