Bayern Munich have announced the signing of former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry, who joins the club on a three-year contract.
Gnabry, 21, impressed in his first season in the Bundesliga with Werder Bremen, scoring 11 times from 27 appearances.
The German international activated a release clause in his contract just a few days ago, with Champions League placed clubs Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig in the mix to win his signature, but the German champions have won the race.
“It is a big honour to become a part of Bayern,” said Gnabry.
“I have an exciting challenge ahead and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Gnabry played at Stuttgart as a youth but departed for Arsenal, the club where he broke through to senior level.
The youngster was unable to secure a starting place with The Gunners, trying out a loan spell with West Brom in 2015 before moving to Werder Bremen for €5 million last summer.
His transfer to Bayern comes in at a similarly modest sum, at €8 million, completing the club’s third transfer of the summer after bringing in Hoffenheim duo Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy, while Kingsley Coman’s loan deal was also made permanent.
