During the summer, Arsenal sold Serge Gnabry to Werder Bremen and Arsene Wenger, at least at the time, was convinced that Bayern Munich had something to do with the transfer.

At the time, it was reported that the 21-year-old would be sold to Bayern before being loaned to Werder. However, unexpectedly, the forward was sold straight to Werder for a reported €5-6m with claims emerging from the likes of Kicker that the German giants had actually paid the fee for them in order to sign him themselves in the not-too-distant future.

ESPN disputed this but it seems that Wenger didn’t as during his pre-Southampton presser, he admitted that, at the time, it did look like Bayern had something to do with it.

Arsenal have recently linked with buying Gnabry back but the boss confirmed this isn’t true.

So far, at Werder, Gnabry is developing into the player Wenger always knew he was. He’s getting regular playing time and has scored seven goals (two assists) in 16 Bundesliga appearances.
