Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
According to reports, Serge Gnabry is set to continue his loan spell at West Brom for the time being, Arsene Wenger has revealed.
The midfielder was reportedly on the verge of returning to the Emirates after failing to impress at West Brom and now the Gunners manager has revealed that 20 year old is set to remain at the Hawthorns unless West Brom decides to cancel the loan deal.
According to previous reports, the Gunners were ready to trigger a clause in the player’s loan agreement that will see him return to the Emirates after West Brom failed to give him the amount of game time both clubs agreed on.
However, that is not the case as Wenger has revealed that it is West Brom’s decision to cancel the loan and the Gunners remain committed to the agreement signed by both clubs.
He said on the club’s official website via one an Arsenal fan site :
“He’s on loan at West Brom, a year long loan,”
“We have a commitment. The player wanted to go there. We have a commitment with West Brom. If they want to cancel the loan, they have to contact us and speak about it. But at the moment, we are not there.”
Gnabry has made just one premier league appearance for West Brom and that came in September against Chelsea. The 20 year old looks lost in the woods as Tony Pulis had previously claimed the premier league is higher than Gnabry’s level.
Gnabry is highly rated at the Emirates and should he remain at the Hawthorns until the end of the season, Gunners faithful will be hoping for a dramatic change in his situation at West Brom.
