German champions Bayer Munich are prepared to loan out forward Serge Gnabry in order to continue his development.

The former Arsenal man linked up with the Bavarian giants on a free transfer after he ended his association with Werder Bremen using a clause in his contract. The 21-year-old had received offers from the likes of RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim but he decided to pursue a stiffer challenge with Bayern, where he could progress more as a player.

According to SportBILD, Gnabry will be loaned out for the 2017/18 season as he looks to earn valuable first-team opportunities in order to push for a national team spot. Gnabry earned his debut for Germany against San Marino earlier last year where he bagged an impressive hat-trick. He is currently with the Germany Under-21 side at the European Championships where they take on England in the semi-final stage.

Gnabry was defined as a top talent during his initial career at the Emirates, but injuries and the lack of game time saw him fall below the pecking order in the following years. Arsene Wenger was keen to keep hold of Gnabry on a new long-term deal but he decided to move on to Bremen, where he bagged 11 goals during the previous campaign.

As per SportBILD, Gnabry could be offered another opportunity in the English top-flight with the likes of Swansea City, Watford, and Newcastle United deemed as possible loan destinations. German club Schalke are also on the hunt for the attacker, but he may opt for a Premier League return in order to prove the Gunners wrong. The young forward was initially struggling to find a suitable suitor for his services but his performances at the Olympic games last year heightened the interest in his signature. Gnabry ended as the joint highest scorer on six goals while his nation finished in the runners-up position to Germany.
