Why former Arsenal star Serge Gnabry’s move to Bayern Munich could actually be really good news for Gunners

Date Posted,June 11, 2017

Arsenal supporters are keeping a very close eye on everything the club is up to as the transfer window looms ever nearer.

Gunners fans are hoping to sign the likes of Kylian Mbappe, or maybe Alexandre Lacazette, or maybe both (probably not both).

The reason for this is that star man Alexis Sanchez has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal at the club, and could be on the move.

The young German, who joined Arsenal’s academy back in 2011, was sold to Werder Bremen last season following an unsuccessful loan spell at West Brom.

He rediscovered his form in his home nation, scoring 11 times for Bremen as they finished 8th in the Bundesliga.

And subsequently caught the eye of the German champions, who snapped Gnabry up on a three-year deal after he announced he would be leaving Bremen after one season.

Bayern are now unlikely to move for Sanchez, meaning Gnabry’s transfer to Bremen – which at the time frustrated some Arsenal fans, who couldn’t understand why the club let the prospect go – was all part of Arsene Wenger’s masterplan…
