Bayern Munich and Germany star Serge Gnabry has just sent Arsenal fans into a frenzy following his latest social media post.

The 26-year-old, who can play anywhere in the top three, spent five years as Gunner and everyone at the club saw he was a special talent. However, Arsenal could not convince him to extend his contract in 2016 and he was sold to Werder Bremen.

Just a year later, Gnabry joined Bayern Munich for just £6.6million (Goal) and he’s been absolutely amazing for them over the years.

He has played 159 times for the German champions so far and has been directly involved in 98 goals which is a phenomenal return. He could leave Bayern this summer and his latest social media post has raised hopes among Arsenal fans.

Serge Gnabry poses wearing a vintage Arsenal shirt

Gnabry, who is still adored by Arsenal supporters, caused a storm on Twitter and Instagram last night by posing in an Arsenal shirt.

He donned the Adidas home kit from the 1993/94 season, along with pictures of himself in retro Bayern Munich and Germany tops from years past.

Unsurprisingly, Arsenal fans loved it and many have been begging him to return to north London when he enters the final year of his contract in the summer transfer window.

Bayern struggle to extend Gnabry’s contract

After joining Bayern in the summer of 2017, Gnabry, who Rio Ferdinand described as “world class”, was handed a new and improved four-year contract in 2019. That contract will expire in 2023 and the German giants are really trying to extend his stay at the club.

However, this turns out to be extremely difficult.

Kicker reported a few weeks ago that Bayern had yet to make progress in negotiations despite being constantly involved in talks with their German star striker.

The report claims that salary and contract length are proving to be an issue and Arsenal fans have urged Edu and Mikel Arteta to make a move for him.

However, that is extremely unlikely to happen this summer.
