West Brom reportedly want Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry on loan

Could West Bromwich Albion bring a young Arsenal player in on loan?

According to a report from ESPN, West Bromwich Albion are interested in taking Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry on loan this summer.

Gnabry has played 18 times for the Gunners, scoring one goal and providing two assists in the process, but injury robbed him of the chance to play for the first-team last season.

The 19-year-old recovered in time to appear for Arsenal’s under-21s at the end of the campaign, and he gave a glimpse of what he is capable of, scoring two goals and providing two assists in matches against Bolton Wanderers and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That said he may struggle to get much first-team football at the Emirates Stadium in the short term considering the amount of talent currently at manager Arsene Wenger’s disposal.

As a result, a loan move may make sense for all concerned and ESPN claims sources have told them that West Brom have targeted the young German.

Baggies manager Tony Pulis reportedly wants a new right winger and Gnabry certainly fits the bill.

With West Brom able to offer him regular first-team football, next season could be the making of the Arsenal youngster if he does move to The Hawthorns.

While several clubs are said to be monitoring the player West Brom are the only club mentioned and if they move quickly they could pull off quite a coup for a player who looks destined to have a very bright future in the game.
