Serge Gnabry wanted by Newcastle and Sunderland

Newcastle, arch-rivals Sunderland and Southampton have contacted Arsenal with a view to signing Serge Gnabry - but will Arsene Wenger agree to season-long loan?

Gnabry, 19, is highly rated by the Gunners, who won’t let him leave permanently. But Wenger may consider letting the youngster leave on a temporary basis to enable the forward to gain valuable first team experience.

Opportunities at Arsenal 

The German forward could find first team chances hard to come by next season, particularly after the arrival of Alexis Sanchez and return of a fully fit Theo Walcott, who all play their trade in the same position. 

Within his two years at the club, Gnabry has only made 18 appearances in all competitions so the experience of playing more games and hopefully starting some will be hugely beneficial for the development and confidence of the player.


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sees the German as a major prospect for the future and he can be a key figure in the Arsenal team, just not yet. If chances come at a premium at either Newcastle, Sunderland or Southampton then you would expect to see him playing a lot more often in an Arsenal shirt in the 2015/16 campaign. 

Front runners

The Magpies seem the most likely to complete the deal out of the three clubs interested, and it would be a good move. Newcastle have already strengthened a midfield that lost talismanic Yohan Cabaye in a January transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, adding Ajax star Siem de Jong and Montpellier's Remy Cabella.

The club will be looking at least to finish in the top half of the table, and hopefully finishing in a Europa League spot.
