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.
