Arsenal’s young winger Serge Gnabry has been a project at Emirates Stadium for a number of years now, but he’s finally going to be given serious playing time in the Premier League.
According to Arsenal.com, the 20-year-old Gnabry has been loaned out to West Bromwich Albion for the 2015-16 Premier League season.
Gnabry joined Arsenal as a member of the youth squad in 2011 and was elevated to the senior squad in 2012, making four total appearances for the Gunners that year. In 2013-14, Gnabry made 14 appearances and scored his first ever senior goal in the Premier League.
After suffering a lingering knee injury in March 2014 though, Gnabry has been out of action. Now that he’s back, however, Arsene Wenger no longer has an immediate need for him and hopes to get him back to
“He has had a very tough time,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. “He was out for over a year and what he needs is competition and to compete at a regular level.
“Here, now, he would maybe not be in the first XI because he needs first to compete.
“We know he is ready to play in the Premier League but we know as well that what is needed for him is to get 25 to 30 games to show that he can produce it on a regular basis and cope with it physically.”
Gnabry was first sold to Arsenal from VfB Stuttgart in 2010 for £100,000. Since 2010 he has 10 career goals in 48 caps between the German Under- teams.
