Liverpool winger Woodburn taking inspiration from ex-Arsenal winger Gnabry

Liverpool youngster Ben Woodburn has taken inspiration from the journey of Serge Gnabry.

Bayern Munich winger Gnabry was brought into the spotlight before the international break after he scored four goals against Tottenham Hotspur.

Woodburn is currently struggling on loan at Oxford United, but Gnabry's past struggles at Arsenal and West Bromwich Albion are providing him with motivation.

"I feel like I have had so much experience and yet I am still only young and learning. Watching someone like Serge Gnabry develop is a big help," the Wales international, who celebrates his 20th birthday on Tuesday, told the Daily Mail.

"I saw his four goals for Bayern Munich against Tottenham in the Champions League. When he was 20, he couldn't get a game on loan at West Brom.

"He has shown you can push through if you keep working hard and hopefully I can do something like he's done."
