The fleet-footed winger is the first signing of the summer for the Bundesliga giants!
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have signed Werder Bremen winger Serge Gnabry on a three-year contract, the club confirmed on Sunday.
“FC Bayern München have agreed the transfer of Serge Gnabry with Werder Bremen. Gnabry, 21, will sign a three-year contract at FC Bayern,” a statement on the club website read.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich chairman, declared: “We’re pleased that in Serge Gnabry another young German international is coming to FC Bayern. Serge has developed a lot at Bremen.”
“It’s a great honour to become part of FC Bayern. It’s going to be an exciting time and one that I’m very much looking forward to,” said the former Arsenal man Gnabry.
Gnabry scored 11 goals for Werder in the recently concluded 2106-17 season and was the top scorer at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil as he helped Germany to win the silver medal.
Initially at the Stuttgart academy, Gnabry shifted to Arsenal in 2011 and spent five seasons with the Gunners. He struggled to break into the first-team, going on loan to fellow Premier League club West Bromwich Albion but was unable to get much action and came back to his parent club in January 2015.
The diminutive winger came back to his homeland in 2016, transferring to Werder Bremen in a £5 million deal and thrived in the Bundesliga, prompting the likes of Bayern Munich to sit up and take notice.
