Arsenal may have to lower their £15m asking price if they want to sell Kieran Gibbs this summer.
- Kolasinac’s arrivals means Gibbs is almost certain to leave
- Stoke, Watford, Newcastle and Brighton are all interested
- £15m asking price may be too high
Newcastle, Stoke, Watford and newly-promoted Brighton are interested in Gibbs but consider his price tag to be too high, according to the Evening Standard.
£15m is quite the steep asking price given the player’s lack of first team football and contract situation. With all the money being thrown about by Premier League clubs these days, you can’t blame Arsenal for trying.
It seems, though, that despite plenty of interest, the asking price is putting clubs off from making a move. Arsenal may have to lower their demands if they want to sell Gibbs this summer.
Gibbs’ future at Arsenal is uncertain after the arrival of Sead Kolasniac. The English left-back has struggled to get in the first team ahead of Nacho Monreal, and now faces an additional obstacle in the Bosnian.
While featuring at the tail-end of last season as a left wing-back in Arsene Wenger’s 3-4-2-1 system, the long-serving defender could find opportunities limited as a result of Arsenal’s new arrival.
