Serge Gnabry, a forward for Bayern Munich, is allegedly wanted by both Manchester City and Manchester United this summer in a £35 million move.

The two parties have not yet reached an agreement on fresh terms as the 26-year-contract old’s with the Bundesliga winners expires in 2023.

And now, according to reports, both City and United are reported to be keenly monitoring his position as the German powerhouses are eager to earn some money on the frontman rather than losing him for nothing.

The best clubs in Europe are on high alert after Gnabry, who made 18 appearances for Arsenal before relocating to Germany, allegedly declined a £200,000-per-week deal to stay in Munich.

Given that Raheem Sterling is anticipated to join Chelsea this summer and travel to London, Pep Guardiola may need to bolster his offensive line.

The champions would be lacking in attack if Gabriel Jesus were to be confirmed as a new Arsenal player shortly as well, and Guardiola believes Serge Gnabry could fill that need.

The German international, who has 65 goals in 171 appearances for Bayern and can play through the center or on either wing, may be useful to Guardiola because of his flexibility.

With the United transfer window still open, new manager Erik ten Hag is keeping an eye on Gnabry as well.

The Dutchman may need to get things moving sooner rather than later given that Cristiano Ronaldo has requested to leave the club despite constant conversations with Frenkie de Jong.

Ten Hag is yet to add to his team this transfer window.

Bayern wants to keep Gnabry, but if a new contract cannot be reached, they are prepared to sell.

Gnabry is thought to have gotten away by many Arsenal supporters. He was enrolled in the club academy as a teenager in 2013, but Arsene Wenger appeared to lose confidence in him and loaned him out to West Brom in February 2016. He ultimately joined Bayern that August after being transferred to Werder Bremen for £4.5 million.

Since then, Gnabry has developed into a player of the highest caliber, winning 12 significant trophies with the German powerhouses, including four Bundesliga championships, a Champions League, and the Club World Cup.

The German has also led Arsenal to two FA Cup titles.
