Bayern Munich have announced the signing of former Arsenal man Serge Gnabry, who joins the club on a three-year contract.

Serge Gnabry made 18 appearances for Arsenal, scoring his only goal for the club against Swansea in September 2013

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.
