Transfer Talk: Chelsea and Spurs eye a power Serge
Serge Gnabry could make a sensational Premier League return with both Chelsea and Tottenham keen to bring the Bayern Munich star back to London.
On course for a fourth straight Bundesliga success this term, ex-Arsenal winger Gnabry remains a key figure at the Allianz Arena under Julian Nagelsmann.
He has played in all 23 of their league games so far and recently achieved the impressive feat of a double-figure goal return for the sixth consecutive campaign.
Yet talkSPORT have picked up on reports in the German press which claim the 26-year-old’s new contract talks have stalled.
Player and club are said to be some way apart in their current demands, opening up the possibility of Bayern cashing in this summer to avoid losing him for free in July 2023.
Both Spurs and Chelsea felt the wrath of Gnabry first-hand as Bayern stormed to Champions League glory in the 2019-20 campaign.
He netted four goals in a 7-2 drubbing at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in a group stage clash before bagging a brace at Stamford Bridge to help knock the Blues out in the last 16.
Gnabry started his senior career with the Gunners and even had an underwhelming loan stint with West Brom during the 2015-16 campaign.
But since swapping England for his homeland that summer, he has established himself as one of the most explosive wingers in world football.
