Germany’s roster is piled up with great talent. The teams estimated market value is around £334.4m not very high but decent. However Germany has a astonishing high average market value, the second highest after Spain. That tells you that German national manager Jogi Low is not only working with great talent but with talent across the board.
So why would Low still search for more players? That’s just the mindset of the manager from southwest Germany, who lives up to the prejudice of a hardworking and humble Swabian. “Never stop improving” might hang on the wall of his office.
Low’s search might found another young prospect, who could fill the void in the midfield due to injury absence of Sami Khedira, Ilkay Gundogan and Lukas Podolski. Low and his training staff might be asking themselves, what might happen if these sidelined players are not able to come back as they want to.
In that case Low’s search found Serge. Serge Gnabry. We reported earlier that Serge Gnabry rapid progression has seen him establish himself as a key squad player at Arsenal FC. Could it be enough to convince Jogi Low?
German daily Hamburger Morgenpost quotes Joachim Low: “The boy is really good, he has exceptional qualities.” Asked if Low is considering Gnabry for his World Cup roster, his answer was: “I’ll leave that still open”, but continued almost warning ”We have an eye on him.”
The tabloid from Hamburg isn’t know as the most reliable sources but their report resembles earlier reports by other German papers.
Last month German international manager Hans-Dieter “Hansi” Flick traveled with two youth coaches to London. Not only to see Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski but to have a closer look at Serge Gnabry.
Flick stated via Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that the World Cup is still months away and in this time a lot of things could happen.
Gnabry has still a long way to go but could be a game changer with huge potential.
