Official: Arsenal Confirm Surprise Deal For German Attacker After Shock Defeat

Although, Arsenal have not been able to bring in quality players to the Emirates, Wenger has succeeded in keeping the crop of his first team players from their suitors.

Arsenal have opened talks with Germany international Serge Gnabry over extending his stay at the Emirates beyond the expiration of his current contract that will expire next summer.

The Germany born star has lighted up the Olympic games  in Rio with his form and has drawn interest from Hertha BSC, per reports.

The report is somewhat sketchy but Hertha BSC have always been keen on the player and his recent form means Wenger cannot afford the player off our radar.

Gnabry, 21, join Arsenal in 2011  in a £100,000 that was agreed in the summer 2010 – he had to wait until 16 to make the switch.

The impressive winger ascended to the highest grade of Arsenal but was sent on loan to WestBromwich last season. However, he was recalled to Arsenal in January after lacking first team action.

Gnabry has been one of the standout stars at the Olympics, scoring five goals in their first three games, with a brace coming in two.

Usually Arsenal open talks when a player has two years left on his deal but in this case they no doubt wanted to see how he will recover from a niggling injury before deciding if they wanted to renew.

Bild also claim that Hertha BSC are interested in signing him permanently with the German site thinking €2m would be an adequate price for Gnabry as long as he doesn’t agree an extension with Arsenal.
