Arsenal boss Wenger tips Gnabry for the top

The 17-year-old has been backed by his Arsenal manager to succeed for club and country after making his first team debut recently
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has predicted a bright future ahead for youth prospect Serge Gnabry.

The 17-year-old German youth international has already made three first team appearances for the Gunners since bursting onto the senior scene this season.

Those displays have indicated what a bright future the former Stuttgart product could have in the game after showing glimpses of his vast potential.

And Wenger has backed his young star to make a name for himself in future.

"He's 17 years old and has a lot of talent," Wenger told The Sun. "Like all 17-year-olds, it's a bit too easy at that stage but the talent and personality are there. With the rest he just has to learn his job — that at this level you have to master all aspects of the game, of being a football player.

"But you see that he has the talent to make a good career."

Gnabry moved to Arsenal from Stuttgart in 2011 at the age of 16, and after breaking into the first team will be looking to push on and prove his manager right.
