Arsenal midfielder Serge Gnabry has completed his transfer to Bayern Munich, his father Jean-Hermann Gnabry has confirmed.
It is understood Gnabry, who heads to Bayern on a permanent basis, will immediately join fellow Bundesliga side Werder Bremen on a season-long loan.
Since signing for Arsenal from Stuttgart’s youth academy in 2012, the young German winger has only managed to make ten Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Jean-Hermann Gnabry, the father of Gnabry, was asked if the transfer of the young starlet to the German champions was complete to which he simply answered: ‘yes, it is,’ to German Stuttgarter Zeitung.
Following the confirmation from the player’s father, Werder Bremen boss Frank Baumann revealed Gnabry’s desire to link up with his new team-mates: ‘Serge Gnabry would like to play for us. We are in promising talks with Arsenal,’ Baumann said.
‘The transfer [of Gnabry] could be completed by tomorrow at noon,’ he added.
‘We held talks four years ago and were interested in the player. At the time it didn’t work out unfortunately.’
Gnabry, who struggled to make his impact at the north London club, managed to earn praise for his impressive form during the 2016 Rio Olympics where his German team narrowly lost out to Brazil in the final to claim the silver medal.
Coming off the back of an unsuccessful loan deal with West Brom last season, 21-year-old Gnabry went on to finish his Olympic tournament as joint top scorer having found the net six times.
