Arsenal handed Serge Gnabry lift after latest Bayern Munich contract offer

Arsenal have reportedly been given a major lift to their hopes of bringing Serge Gnabry back to the club at the end of this season.

The flying winger struggled to make an impact during his time at The Emirates. However, he has since gone on to become one of European football’s most feared attackers during his time in Germany.

Gnabry has won every competition going during his time at Bayern, who are keen for him to stay put.

However, the 26-year-old is seemingly keen on a fresh challenge and The Sun reports that he has rejected offers of a contract extension from the Bundesliga champions.

Bayern have so offered to double Gnabry’s salary, but he remains reluctant to accept their bid and commit his future to the club.

The news will come as a boost to the Gunners’ hopes of re-signing the attacker. Indeed, Arsenal can begin talks with the player now, given that he will be a free agent in the summer.

Spurs, Real also keen on Gnabry

North London rivals Tottenham and Spanish giants Real Madrid are also said to be keen on landing Gnabry.

However, at this stage it’s unclear where the winger sees his future – leaving the door open to a number of clubs to try and snap up his services.

Any club signing Gnabry though will likely have to pay out a sizeable signing-on fee, as well as a bumper salary.
