Serge Gnabry’s father has told his son to reject approaches from any reported interested clubs and stay at Wereder Bremen for at least two years.
The 21-year-old joined Werder Bremen from Arsenal last summer for £5 million after a lack of first-team action at the Emirates. The German international has since been in sensational form for his new club but has reportedly been linked with a return to Arsenal.
Reports have suggested that Gnabry has a release clause of around £7 million in his current deal at Werder Bremen, and while the Gunners have been linked with a move for the former Gunner, Arsene Wenger has admitted he has no plans to re-sign the young winger
The player’s father, Jean-Hermann Gnabry, has told German publication Bild (via Metro) that he has advised his son to make a name for himself at his new club before thinking about a move elsewhere:
‘I advise him to stay here for two or three years at Werder.
‘How long was Diego here? How long was [Mesut] Ozil here? He has to do something here before he takes the next step.
‘My son looks quite the same. I know for sure.’
Some may find it unusual for Gnabry to be linked with a return to Arsenal having left the club last summer due to a lack of first-team opportunities in the first place.
A move for the German winger looks more likely to happen in the future as Wenger has stated he is not considering bringing him back to the Emirates just yet. But only time will tell.
