Serge Gnabry had a frustrating time on loan at Albion.

The 21-year-old made his Gunners breakthrough in 2012, but after struggling to command a regular berth, had a stint at The Hawthorns before joining Werder Bremen last summer.

An impressive season which yielded 11 goals from 27 appearances brought him to Bayern’s attention and the two-time Germany international has now joined the Bundesliga champions.

“It is a great honour to be part of FC Bayern,” he said. “Before me lies an exciting time, which I am very much looking forward to.”

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “We are delighted to see another young German national player in FC Bayern in Serge Gnabry. Serge has developed very well in Bremen.”
