Bayern star Serge Gnabry linked with Premier League return amid Allianz Arena contract issue

Due to his contract situation, Bayern Munich superstar Serge Gnabry has found his name in the headlines amid speculation surrounding his future.

The German ace is entering the final 12 months of his Allianz Arena contract, and having turned down offers for an extension, the Bundesliga champions may be forced to cash in on the 26-year-old this summer in order to avoid losing him for free in 2023.

Additionally, the signing of Sadio Mane from Liverpool means Nagelsmann's side can afford to sell Gnabry, who wasn't always a guaranteed starter last season due to injuries and the presence of Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman.

And according to the Sun, the German ace is starting to garner attention from the Premier League as two English heavyweights are said to be monitoring his situation at Bayern Munich. Unfortunately for Arsenal fans wishing to see their former attacker return to the Emirates Stadium, north London wasn't touted as a possible destination.

Instead, it is the two Manchester giants who are keeping an eye on the attacker. The British tabloid report that with Raheem Sterling nearing an Etihad Stadium exit, Guardiola will make a move for Serge to replace the English attacker.

This would make a lot of sense for the Premier League champions. With Gabriel Jesus having departed for Arsenal and Sterling nearing a move to Chelsea, the acquisition of Gnabry, a player who can play on both the right and left flank, could fill both voids.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are also on the hunt for a winger, with Ajax talent Anthony being their priority. However, with the Dutch giants holding out for a high price, Ten Hag's side could shift focus to Bayern's German ace.

The former Arsenal man turned down an offer worth just over £200,000 a week from the Bavarians, meaning he won't come cheap. However, in terms of a transfer fee, the Bundesliga giants will reportedly ask merely around £35M, which translates to roughly $42M.
