Serge Gnabry has not ruled out a return to Arsenal at the end of the season.
The 21-year-old made the switch from Arsenal to Werder Bremen last summer for around £5 million due to the lack of first-team football he was receiving at the Emirates under Arsene Wenger.
Gnabry has since excelled for the Bundesliga side, netting seven goals in 15 appearances so far this season.
It’s been suggested that the Germany international has a £6.9 million release clause in his Werder Bremen contract and could be on the move again come the end of the season, hinting a return to Arsenal could be on the cards.
Quoted on TribalFootball.com, Gnabry said:
‘For my future, I’ve decided to focus on how I play now and today. That’s why I’m trying to concentrate on the now.
‘As of today, I do not intend to change in the summer. But what happens in the future depends on my performance. What if Chelsea or Arsenal come knocking? Well, at the moment I’m trying to give everything to Werder.’
The German’s departure did not go down well with the Arsenal faithful with many believing the young winger had the ability to become a regular at the club.
Perhaps a return to Arsenal could happen in the future. Never say never in football. But if he left to play regular first-team football and is currently doing so at Werder Bremen, why would he ponder a return to the Emirates knowing he going back to square one? Of course things can change, but if Wenger really wanted him to stay put then he should have played him more and also assured he had a future at Arsenal.
