Ex-Gunner Gnabry open to Arsenal (or Chelsea) move

Serge Gnabry has not closed the door on a potential return to former club Arsenal in the future.

Gnabry spent five years at Arsenal after joining the club’s youth team in 2011.

The German made just 18 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners, with a brief loan spell at West Brom failing to convince Arsene Wenger that he was deserving of a prolonged chance in the first team.

He left last summer to join Werder Bremen in a £5million move, and has scored seven goals in 15 games for the Bundesliga side.

Speaking to German daily Bild, the 21-year-old admitted that he was open to a Premier League return in the future.

“For my future, I’ve decided to focus on how I play now and today,” he said.

“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? At the moment I’m trying to give everything to Werder.”
