Serge Gnabry has joined Bayern Munich after one season with Werder Bremen after being told he was not good enough for West Brom in 2015.
The 21-year-old winger was part of Arsenal’s youth team afer joining from Stuttgart in 2010.
Joined West Brom on a season long loan in 2015 to gain first team experience but returned to Arsenal in January after just one start.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis felt Gnabry was carrying too much weight and lacked match fitness at times, saying “Serge has come here to play games but he just hasn’t been for me, at the moment, at that level to play the games.”
Gnabry returned to Arsenal and made the move to Werder Bremen for first team football after ended the 2016 Olympic Games as joint top scorer and helping Germany to win the silver medal.
A fantastic season in the Bundesliga saw Gnabry make 27 league appearances, scoring 8 goals.
Bayern Munich are now believed to have activated a release clause in his contract and will join them on the 1st July.
Gnabry scored a hat-trick on his senior international debut against San Marino in 2016, becoming first Germany debutant to score a hat-trick since Dieter Müller in 1976.
