According to the Evening Standard, Watford are weighing up a move for Kieran Gibbs after Arsenal lowered their £15 million asking price.
Following the signing of Sead Kolasinac, Arsene Wenger has deemed the England international surplus to requirements at the Emirates alerting a number of clubs, including Newcastle United and Brighton. There’s also been a somewhat spurious link with Galatasaray.
The left-back hasn’t taken part in any first team pre-season preparations this summer with Arsene Wenger happy to deploy Hector Bellerin and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out of position instead.
Young pretender Cohen Bramall did see action in Australia and China but has since been sent to Birmingham City to gain experience, while Nacho Monreal appears to have nailed down a position as a left-sided centre-back.
Gibbs made his debut for the Gunners ten years ago and has since made 229 appearances. Last season he captained the first team on a number of occasions in the absence of Laurent Koscielnny and Per Mertesacker.
