at banner

Two and a half months ago I came to the defense of Joel Campbell and why the stars aligned for him to take his chance at Arsenal and cement a place in the first-team. With recent events ending in him being loaned out to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon, and the likely full move away from the club that is surely on the horizon, another door (yet under different circumstances) has been opened for a different wide player who has yet to show what he is capable of – Serge Gnabry.

Born in the Porsche capital of the world, Serge David Gnabry was born to an Ivorian father and a German mother.

During his five years with Die Schwaben, Gnabry gained a reputation for being one of the brighter talents in his age group, resulting in his breaking into the German U-16 side in 2010 and earning himself five appearances. It was then that Arsène Wenger and Arsenal would come calling.

The spring of 2007 was unseasonably warm in London. As the sun crested the early morning, a man shaved and brushed his teeth – rehearsing the lines again in his head.

As he continued to prepare for his morning meetings, he questioned what he was about to do. In the past, he had been clear in his mission – often taking on riskier and riskier endeavors to bring success to the club he loved.

There’s the story of how he had camped outside Atlético Mineiro’s training ground in Brazil in order to sign Gilberto Silva, and the promises of a more attacking team he’d made to an out-of-form Dutchman at Inter.
