Toni Kroos has never seen Arsenal starlet play

Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos concedes he has never seen Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry play, as the two clubs prepare to face each other once again in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. Kroos has, however, heard ‘great things’ about Gnabry, who may be afforded a place in the squad for Tuesday’s encounter.

Gnabry has made 13 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal this season, initially deputising for Theo Walcott, with the 18-year-old scoring one goal in the vital win against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium early in the campaign.

The young German’s performances for the Gunners have attracted much attention back home, with national team manager Joachim Low identifying Gnabry as a player with an outside chance of making his World Cup squad this summer.

Kroos, though, is yet to have watched Gnabry in action for either Arsenal or the German youth ranks.

“Haven’t seen him play,” Kroos told reporters ahead of the meeting with Arsenal. “Just read great things about him.”

Kroos, meanwhile, has also spoken about his future with Bayern Munich as talks continue over a potential new contract at the Allianz Arena. The 24-year-old is wanted by Manchester United and claimed he would consider a move to Old Trafford even in the club failed to reach the Champions League.
