Bayern signing Serge Gnabry on 3-year contract


Gnabry has signed a three-year deal with Bayern and becomes the club's fourth permanent signing of the summer, following Kingsley Coman, Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy to the club.

Gnabry, who was the top scorer at the 2016 Olympics as he helped Germany to win the silver medal, is excited about joining the Bundesliga champions.

Gnabry said: "It's a great honour to become part of FC Bayern".

"I have an exciting challenge ahead and I am really looking forward to it".

"We are very happy to have secured the services of another young Germany worldwide in Serge", he stated. "Serge has developed really well in Bremen".

Gnabry previously played for Arsenal but could not convince manager Arsene Wenger of his pedigree, making just 18 appearances for the Gunners and scoring once, and he was subsequently sent out on loan during the 2015-16 season, playing three matches for West Brom.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added on his club's official website: "We are delighted to see another young German national player in FC Bayern in Serge Gnabry".

German media reported at the time that Bayern Munich were involved in the transfer and had the option to purchase the player after year, suggestions which were strongly denied by Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann.
