Fantastic young lad, in the mould of the OX according to Gunners fans and a Germany youth international.

I still think we will try for Phillips towards end of window even if we get Gnabry.

Perhaps you'd like to tell us how much he would be costing us in loan fees,  wages and on-costs. Plus of course precisely how much Phillips would cost in total.  That way we can judge whether you know what you are talking about.

Highly rated by Arsenal and a German under 21 international. Ill be very pleased and for me, a better signing that Sako who is too much like Sessegnon.

Really chuffed if this comes off. A good young player who has been bought up the right way in footballing terms.

He will be hungry and eager to impress, more likely to come off the bench but will provide TP with an alternative.

If Gnabry is signed on loan, I'm starting to think we could be more a  Pulis at palace side than a Pulis at stoke side next season.
Which will be a marked improvement over last seasons drivel (effective drivel, I accept)

According to Metro He's already signed, but since it's Metro, I want to see a picture of him holding the shirt.

Don't Under 21 players automatically have a 24 hour recall option for their owning club?

This guy is absolute class. Would probably already be very much in Arsenals first team picture if he hadn't of missed all of last year with injury.

Still young so don't expect him to start 38 games for us but coming off the bench with 30 mins to go and starting around 20 games he could still have a major impact for us, maybe not as directly as Lukaku in terms of goals but in terms of ability I don't think he is to far away where Lukaku was when he was with us. No way we could ever attract a player like this permanently and he's twice the player of any of Mcmanaman, McClean, Phillips, Sako etc.

Drawback is we will in need to replace him again in 12 months time but I'm sure we would all have taken Lukaku again in hindsight. If we do sign him another winger would be nice (I still think Phillips will end up signing in the last week of the window) but Gnabry, McClean, Mcmanaman as out and out wingers with Brunt as another wide player rather than winger, plus Morrison, Gardner and Sess if he stays can also all play wide (although I dont think any of them are as effective there) gives us plenty of options and certainly means the wings couldn't be considered a big weakness any more.

Its fairly safe to say he won't be costing the £7m+ phillips will.

You are probably right about that but bear in mind that a £7m fee would buy him for (say) a 3 year period. The loan fee for Gnabry would be just to cover the period of the loan, the relative annual costs may well be more comparable.
