The Baggies who had made Antonio their priority are now looking at other options and are already discussing a loan deal for Gnabry with Arsenal.
The German U21 international is seen as an option if their pursuit for Queens Park Ranger’s Matt Philip fails, after QPR rejected their initial £5millon bid for the winger.
Serge Gnabry broke into the first team at Arsenal in 2012 and went on to make 10 appearances scoring 1 goal, before an injury hampered his first team chances.
Series of injury setbacks ensured that he didn’t play for Arsenal’s first team throughout last season. However, he is back to full fitness now and could be allowed to leave on loan to gain first team football.
The Baggies see him as a decent option if QPR continues to play hard-ball on Matt Philip’s valuation.
