Gnabry however had a clause in his contract with Bremen allowing him to leave after one season, and the club’s Sporting Director Frank Baumann has confirmed the player has decided to depart the Bundesliga outfit. He is quoted by Football.London as saying:
“After a very good first year for him at Werder, Serge has informed us that he would like to take the next step in his career. He will therefore activate a clause in his contract and leave the club at the end of the month.”
During his first season back in Germany, the midfielder scored 11 goals and provided two assists in 27 Bundesliga matches. It has been reported that Hoffenheim are the favourites to land the winger while he is also being tracked by Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig. All three clubs are in the Champions League next season and would no doubt be attractive options for the German international.
