The German international left Arsenal in the summer of 2016 for Werder Bremen. At the time, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger reportedly didn’t want the midfielder to leave but the player’s desire for first team football meant he was allowed to go back to Germany for £5m.
Speaking in an interview with German magazine Kicker, Gnabry said:
“It is definitely my wish to play in England again.”
The 22 year old performed well in his first season at Bremen, scoring 11 goals and providing two assists in 27 Bundesliga games. He spent only one season at the German club though after Bayern Munich activated his release clause to take him to the Allianz Arena.
Gnabry was not at Bayern for very long though as he was loaned out straight away to Hoffenheim so he could gain more first team experience. The midfielder expects to return to the Bundesliga champions next summer, but in his Kicker interview he went on to say:
“Unless the other side changes [its mind], sometimes it happens in football in a very short time, but my plan is to play next season with Bayern.”
