Germany boss Joachim Loew has revealed Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry could yet break into his World Cup squad.

Gnabry made his Premier League debut for the Gunners in October last year, and the 18-year-old - who was handed a new long-term contract last month - has furthered his reputation during his six appearances in all competitions for the club this season.

Loew and his assistant, Hansi Flick, were at the Liberty Stadium on September 28 to see Gnabry score in Arsenal's 2-1 win over Swansea City in the Premier League.

Gnabry was present at Wembley for Germany's 1-0 victory over England on Tuesday evening, and Loew said the Stuttgart-born winger could be a surprise inclusion in his squad next summer.

"The boy is really good," Loew said prior to the England match. "He has exceptional qualities. I'm still open [to him making the World Cup squad]. We have an eye on him."

The player has represented Germany at under-19 level but faces a battle to force his way into the squad, with the senior side playing only one further friendly - against Chile in Stuttgart on March 5 - before Loew names his preliminary World Cup squad.
