According to a report from the Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move for Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry with
The lowdown: Rise to stardom
The 26-year-old has undergone a bizarre rise to prominence on the elite European stage having struggled at Arsenal and West Brom before rediscovering form back in Germany.
Gnabry only mustered 11 Premier League appearances during spells across the two English clubs and was sold to Werder Bremen for £4.5million in 2016 (Daily Mail).
Now a return to north London could be on the cards…
The latest: Conte ‘pushing’
As per the report from the Daily Star, Tottenham are considering an ‘ambitious swoop’ for the German international.
This comes as manager Antonio Conte is personally ‘pushing the club to table a cut-price deal’ for Gnabry given his contract situation, telling Spurs make a move.
Described as a ‘contract rebel’, Gnabry is set to become a free agent in 2023 (Transfermarkt) and Bayern are could be ‘willing to listen to offers’ for the man once hailed as ‘world class’ by Rio Ferdinand.
The report states that the Bundesliga giants ‘won’t be held to ransom’ by the 31-cap Germany ace, sparking interest from the Lilywhites.
The verdict: Make it happen
So far this season Gnabry has scored 16 times and provided 10 assists in 42 appearances across all competitions and would be a superb addition to Conte’s squad at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Italian, alongside transfer chief Fabio Paratici, attempts to strengthen the N17 ranks.
Predominantly a right-winger, the versatile attacker can operate across the frontline and would provide an alternative to Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and the potentially outgoing Steven Bergwijn whilst also being capable of operating centrally.
Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?
Boasting a superb 7.34 average Sofascore rating this season, the Stuttgart-born star keeps illustrious company alongside Leroy Sane, Neymar and Mohamed Salah when using the Fbref comparison tool and would therefore be a top-level capture despite the previous links with elsewhere in north London.
