Serge Gnabry ‘doesn’t want to play for another London club’ due to his roots at Arsenal, leaving Chelsea’s enquiry for him uncertain… but he ‘COULD go to Man City, United or Real Madrid’
- Chelsea have made ‘tentative’ enquires over Bayern Munich star Serge Gnabry
- The Germany forward has yet to agree a new deal at the Bundesliga giants
- The 26-year-old’s contract at the Allianz Arena expires in June of next year
- But having played 18 games for Arsenal, he will not move to another London side
Ex-Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry will reportedly not consider moving to another London club despite interest from Chelsea.
The 26-year-old scored one goal in 18 appearances for the Gunners first team across four seasons before heading to Germany to eventually further his career with the Bundesliga champions.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have made ‘tentative’ enquiries for Gnabry with Raphinha not set to join
And German outlet BILD claim his time in north London mean he will not entertain the idea of moving to one of their city rivals, leaving Chelsea uncertain of their next move.
However, the report adds Gnabry’s future at the Allianz Arena is far from certain, with his contract at the German giants expiring next summer.
The same outlet claims talks between the Germany forward’s representatives and Bayern Munich are on hold, with club bosses seeing his failure to accept a £200,000-a-week deal worth £16million (€19m) per year as a rejection of the terms.
However, they claim a transfer to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City remains an option for Gnabry, with the Premier League champions set to lose Raheem Sterling to Chelsea in a £50m deal.

The Germany international, who has scored 65 goals in 171 games for Bayern, can play on either flank as well as down the middle, meaning his versatility could prove handy for Guardiola.
City rivals Manchester United are also reportedly interested in a £35m deal, while Real Madrid have also been linked.
No fee has been set for Gnabry, who has developed into one of Europe’s finest attacking talents.
However, it is unlikely that anything less than £45m would tempt the German giants to sell.

Arsene Wenger brought him into the Arsenal academy as a teenager in 2013, before appearing to lose faith in him and sending him loan to West Brom in February 2016.
He was eventually sold to Werder Bremen for £4.5m that August before joining Bayern a year later.
Gnabry has since gone on to become a world-class performer, winning 12 major trophies with Bayern including four Bundesliga titles, a Champions League and the Club World Cup.
The German also has two FA Cup victories to his name with Arsenal.
