Serge Gnabry Germany

FC Bayern München have announced the signing of German international attacker Serge Gnabry.

The 21-year-old, who starred in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil as the top scorer for his country, who ultimately won the silver medal at those games, more recently scored 11 goals for SV Werder Bremen last season.

He helped Bremen to an eighth-placed finish before parting ways with the Bundesliga side at the end of the recently-completed campaign.

He has since signed a three-year deal with the German champions for a fee believed to be €8 million.

A statement from the club read: "FC Bayern München have agreed the transfer of Serge Gnabry with Werder Bremen. Gnabry, 21, will sign a three-year contract at FC Bayern."

Club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: "We’re pleased that in Serge Gnabry another young German international is coming to FC Bayern. Serge has developed a lot at Bremen.”

Gnabry, meanwhile, revealed his delight at joining such a prestigious club.

He said: "It’s a great honour to become part of FC Bayern. It’s going to be an exciting time and one that I’m very much looking forward to.”

A former VfB Stuttgart youth, Gnabry joined Arsenal in 2012 but struggled to make an impact in his four years in England, where he spent one season on loan with West Bromwich Albion.

Bayern have already signed TSG 1899 Hoffenheim duo Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy ahead of the new season, while they also signed Kingsley Coman on a permanent deal following his two-year loan spell.
