Arsenal fans move on after Chelsea sign Raphinha by urging Gunners to re-sign Serge Gnabry

‘Bring him home!’: Arsenal fans move on quickly after Chelsea attempt to sign Raphinha by urging Gunners to re-sign Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry for ‘better option’

  • Arsenal fans call on club to bring Serge Gnabry back to the Emirates
  • The Gunners lost to rivals Chelsea in their bid to sign Raphinha from Leeds
  • Several Arsenal fans say Gnabry is a ‘better option’ and represents better value
  • The 26-year-old is strongly linked with a departure from Bayern Munich

Not content with just signing Gabriel Jesus worth £45million, Arsenal fans are asking for more by urging the club to re-sign Serge Gnabry after the loss of Raphinha.

The Leeds winger had a string of suitors vying to sign him, with Arsenal leading the way. However, the Gunners were usurped by London rivals Chelsea, who have agreed a £60 million fee with Leeds for Raphinha.

But instead of channeling their disappointment by berating the club for missing out, Arsenal fans are instead showing confidence in Mikel Arteta by quickly writing Raphinha off and focusing instead on former player Gnabry.

The 26-year-old’s future at Bayern Munich is up in the air as his contract expires next year, but he has yet to sign an extension and is strongly linked with a departure.

As one Gunners fan put it on Twitter: ‘Lost race to Raphinha, no problem… Gnabry is a better option anyway (sic). Please take him home.’

Another said Gnabry was worth more and wrote: ‘I prefer Gnabry to Raphinha. Especially about the compensation being discussed for the man from Leeds.’

Then Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger pulled Gnabry out of Germany as a teenager in 2013

Many Arsenal fans see Gnabry as the one who escaped. Arsene Wenger brought him to the club academy as a teenager in 2013 before he seemed to lose faith in him and loaned him to West Brom in February 2016.

He was eventually sold to Werder Bremen in August for £4.5 million before moving to Bayern a year later.

Gnabry has since gone on to become a world-class performer, winning 12 major trophies with the German giants, including four Bundesliga titles, a Champions League and the Club World Cup.

The German also has two FA Cup victories to his name at Arsenal.

“Raphinha keeps talking. Now all I see is Serge Gnabry. Take him home,” wrote one Gunners fan, while another said that given Gnabry’s stalemate in Germany, “Bayern will readily take what Leeds asks for Raphinha.”

A Twitter user echoed the thoughts of many Arsenal fans about both Raphinha and Gnabry.

“If we can’t get Raphinha, sign Serge Gnabry as Raphinha’s replacement. Best value for money on the market.’
