Arsenal are interested in bringing Serge Gnabry back to the Premier League, and he wouldn’t be against the move.

Christian Falk of German outlet BILD reports that Arsenal are interested in re-signing Serge Gnabry.

The winger can also imagine a comeback with the Gunners, though Falk adds that a summer transfer may be financially unrealistic without the Champions League money. A move when Gnabry is a free agent in 2023 might be Arsenal’s best shot.

BILD report that Real Madrid join Arsenal in the race for Gnabry, and they’ve been positioning themselves for a summer move in recent weeks.

Kicker reported in April that contract negotiations between Gnabry and Bayern Munich have stalled and the winger is now unlikely to sign an extension beyond 2023.

Bayern aren’t willing to meet the winger’s demands to be paid a similar amount to Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sane, so Gnabry is no longer thinking about extending.

Sport1 editor Kerry Hau added that as well as the money, Gnabry feels he’s being used too far wide in Julian Nagelsmann’s current system, limiting his ability to produce in front of goal.

If Arsenal are indeed after Gnabry, their formation involves wide forwards with overlapping full-backs, rather than out-and-out wingers. So they could offer him more of a central role.

Even from his current wider position in the Bayern team, Gnabry has provided plenty of goal contributions this season.

In 45 appearances for the side in 2021/22, the German international has reached 17 goals and eight assists, most recently scoring in the game that won them their 10th consecutive Bundesliga title.

For the national team, where he plays centrally more regularly, Gnabry has 20 goals in 31 appearances.
