Arsenal sold Serge Gnabry for £5m and signed Nicolas Pepe for £72m


Arsenal fans would have thoroughly enjoyed watching their former player, Serge Gnabry, score four times as Bayern Munich thrashed Tottenham 7-2 last night.

Gnabry only managed to make 18 appearances at the Emirates but the German didn’t appear to be cut out for English football.

He also endured a disastrous loan spell at West Brom during the 2015/16 campaign, playing just once in the Premier League with manager Tony Pulis insisting that Gnabry ‘wasn’t good enough’ for the Baggies.

Arsenal seemed to agree and allowed him to join Werder Bremen for just £5 million in the summer of 2016.

It's proved to be a terrible decision.

Gnabry scored 11 goals in 27 Bundesliga games in his debut season for Breman and then 10 in 22 in a season-long loan at Hoffenheim.

It attracted the attention of Bayern Munich, who signed him in 2017 for just €8 million.

He scored 10 in 30 Bundesliga games last season and we’ve all seen what he’s capable of this campaign. Not to mention his incredible record for Germany in which he’s scored nine goals in 10 appearances.

Reckon Arsenal regret selling him?

Well, last summer, the Gunners spent £72 million on Nicolas Pepe.

While Pepe impressed for Lyon in France, he’s really struggled to adapt to Premier League football so far.

And when you consider Pepe and Gnabry are the same age, it really does put Arsenal’s mistake into perspective.

Twenty-four hours before Gnabry’s incredible 10/10 performance in north London, Pepe produced a terrible individual display during Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

If you could pick one player to play for your side right now, Gnabry is winning every time.
