Serge Gnabry has admitted that Arsenal would be “the favourite” if he was to make a dramatic return to the Premier League.
The Bayern Munich star left the Gunners in 2016, but only after an ill-feted loan with West Brom, when Tony Pulis suggested he was not up to the required level.
While the Baggies would drop out of the top-flight, Gnabry went on to win a pair of Bundesliga titles, two German Cups, the Champions League and the Super Cup.
“You always hear a little bit about it or people in the U.K. ask me about it,” he said to CBS Sports about those Pulis comments. “It looks like it won’t stop, all I can say is I’m proud of the journey I’ve taken.

“To be a Champions League winner now when a couple of years back I was doubted is obviously a great thing for me.
“Of course after having struggled a lot it was difficult to pick myself up. The biggest thing is that self-confidence, that I knew what I was capable of. I never lost that. Obviously, you doubt it at some points but I never lost it.”
Despite his stunning form for the German champions, the 25-year-old is adamant is still has doubters he wants to prove wrong.
“There’s always a point to prove,” Gnabry told CBS Sports. “I hope we haven’t hit the pinnacle yet. The mentality of us players, of myself and I’m sure the team is to aim for another treble.
“Of course we all know it’s going to be hard, but we have a lot of quality and the motivation is sometimes going to be difficult but every one of us picks the other up. I’m sure we can achieve a lot more than just having one great season.”
