Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has given an update on the Bayern Munich star’s future.
The Italian journalist tweeted: “Serge Gnabry signs new Bayern deal until June 2027. Full agreement now in place as expected. Extending with Bayern has always been player’s priority, very good relationship with his agents after Mané deal.”
Despite the Egyptian extending his deal until 2025, Liverpool supporters will surely be gutted that they have missed out on the opportunity to sign a very talented forward in Gnabry who could have further strengthened their already highly impressive forward line.
The German’s versatility in his positioning would have been a huge boost for the Merseysiders in their pursuit to continue competing on all fronts. The 27-year-old can play effectively along the front three, and also in advanced midfield role.
He scored 14 goals, delivered five assists and created a whopping 17 big chances, making 1.4 key passes and 1.4 tackles per game and winning the majority of his duels (51%), while he successfully completed the majority of his dribble attempts (61%) over 34 Bundesliga appearances last season.
Gnabry has proven that he is the perfect all-rounder who would be an asset in any team, and his improvement and talents haven’t gone unnoticed by the football world.
The attacker has been the recipient of high praise with Rio Ferdinand dubbing the player “world-class” on BT Sport following Bayern’s progression to the Champions League final in 2020.
The former England defender said of Gnabry (via Daily Mail): “His stats are phenomenal. He’s sitting in the top level, world class. From where he was, being discarded by Arsenal and West Brom, to where he is now. Wow.”
With that in mind, the signing of the 27-year-old would have been a major coup for Liverpool to add even further depth to their talented squad, but supporters will now be gutted to have missed out on bringing him to Anfield, although Salah’s recent contract extension at least softens the blow.
