Serge Gnabry has decided to stay at Bayern Munich and is set to sign a new long-term contract at the club, according to reports.
The winger joined Bayern in 2017 and has helped them win four Bundesliga titles and the Champions League.
But speculation over Gnabry’s future has been ramping up, with links to former club Arsenal and fellow Premier League side Chelsea surfacing.
The 27-year-old’s current contract is due to expire next summer but according to The Athletic, he is due to sign a new deal in the coming days.
Gnabry was the subject of interest from big clubs across Europe but he will remain at the Allianz Arena.
The Germany international graduated from Arsenal’s academy and went on to make 10 Premier League appearances for the Gunners before departing.
He moved on to Werder Bremen in 2016 and spent a season there before signing for German champions Bayern.
Arsenal are thought to be keen on signing a winger this summer but both they and Chelsea have missed out on Leeds United’s Raphinha.
The Brazil international was a target for both the Gunners and the Blues but he has officially been unveiled as a Barcelona player.
Meanwhile, Chelsea confirmed a deal for Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling earlier this week.
Ex-Chelsea midfielder Cole told BBC Sport of the signing: ‘Chelsea are getting one of England’s best players in the prime of his career at a good price.
‘It’s a great bit of business. It helps us in the final third of the pitch – he’s a goalscorer and he can help the young players.
‘We are very young in that area – Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic. Raheem is five or six years older than them, has more games under his belt and has been round the block.
‘He can help with the leadership group as well. He’s part of the leadership group for England. We’ve lost Antonio Rudiger, so he will be very important on and off the pitch.’
