Arsenal reject £10m West Brom bid

Arsenal have turned down a £10million bid from West Brom for Kieran Gibbs, reports Sky Sports.

It is being reported that the Gunners are willing to sell the left-back, 27, this summer but want closer to £12million for his sale.

With Nacho Monreal and new signing Sead Kolasinac set to compete for the left-back berth this season, it appears Arsene Wenger does not see Gibbs in Arsenal’s first-team plans.

Earlier in the week it was reported that West Brom manager Tony Pulis sees the England international as his best option at left-back this summer and had approached the Gunners to discuss a potential transfer. However, Pulis has also admitted that he will not pay over the odds to acquire a full-back.

Gibbs has fallen out of favour at the Emirates, making just eight Premier League starts and featuring a total of 22 times in all competitions last season.

Gibbs made his debut for Arsenal during the 2007/08 season but has struggled to cement a regular place in Wenger’s starting line-up.

It remains to be seen whether West Brom or another interested club are willing to meet Wenger’s £12million asking price for Gibbs this summer, but it looks as if his future at the Emirates is at an end.
