BACK IN AUGUST, Werder Bremen signed a £5m deal to bring Serge Gnabry back to Germany after a five-year spell with Arsenal.

Despite an eye-catching breakout campaign with the Gunners in 2013/2014, injuries slowed down his progress and a loan spell at West Brom proved disappointing.

Still, Arsene Wenger liked what he saw and offered a new deal to the winger. Instead, Gnabry wanted a change and headed for Bremen.

The 21-year-old has done well for since the move, scoring some goals and doing enough to warrant a call-up to Jogi Loew’s senior German side.

And tonight, on his international debut, he scored a hat-trick as a second-string side put eight past a hapless San Marino in their Group C World Cup qualifier.


To rub salt in the wounds, Gnabry’s current employers took to social media to have a little fun at Arsenal’s expense.
