Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry has been pictured wearing a retro Arsenal shirt as part of a recent photoshoot.
The ex-Gunners star has never hidden his affection for his former club and some supporters on Twitter are dreaming about the German’s potential return to the Emirates:

Gnabry is currently involved in a contract dispute with Bayern so there is a possibility that he will be leaving the Allianz Arena in the not too distant future.
However, reports last month claimed that Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona were the four teams monitoring his situation.
Gnabry’s current deal at Bayern expires in 2023 so the Bundesliga club will be under pressure to sell the player this summer, if he doesn’t sign an extension in the coming months.
Whether Arsenal would seriously consider going after him may depend on a number of factors. Champions League qualification would be essential, while offloading a winger such as Nicolas Pepe may well have to be considered too.
