Arsenal are monitoring Serge Gnabry's contract standoff at Bayern Munich and could attempt to bring him back to the Emirates Stadium, 90min understands.

The 26-year-old's deal at the Allianz Arena runs until the end of the 2022/23 season, though the Bundesliga champions have already hinted that he could leave this window.

90min understands Arsenal are keeping a watchful eye on the situation, particularly with it looking increasingly likely that they will not be able to land Leeds United winger Raphinha.

Bayern director Hasan Salihamidzic recently revealed that Gnabry could be sold if the club cannot agree terms on a contract renewal in the near future.

"We really want to keep him. I hope that he chooses Bayern. If a player doesn't want to decide for the club, then we can find a solution that makes everyone happy," he told Sky Sport Germany.

Gnabry joined the Gunners' youth ranks as a 16-year-old and would go on to make 18 senior appearances under Arsene Wenger, though infamously spent his final year in England on loan at Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion, featuring just three times for the Baggies.

He joined Werder Bremen for £5m in 2016 and signed for Bayern Munich soon after, spending the 2017/18 season at Hoffenheim before joining up with the first team in Bavaria.

Since returning to his homeland, Gnabry has registered double figures of goals in each of his six seasons in the Bundesliga. He notably starred in the Bayern side that won the 2019/20 Champions League, putting several goals past Arsenal's bitter rivals Chelsea and Tottenham in the process.
