The departure of Kieran Gibbs from Arsenal after 13 years with the club in the academy and first team, is probably not going to be the last bit of transfer movement away from the Emirates stadium this summer. Arsene Wenger has already spoken about the need to trim our large squad before signing more players and he seems to be getting it done.
We have recently seen Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall go out on loan for the season and Sky Sports are reporting that our left back is set for a permanent transfer to Premier League club Watford. Apparently the transfer fee is agreed and Gibbs wants to go so that seems to be that.
The departure of the 27-year old will leave the Arsenal squad numbers at 30, which already gives the boss some room for manoeuvre and I would not be surprised to see any or all of Debuchy, Lucas Perez and Joel Campbell leave as well. So, Gooners, are we expecting a couple of big signings from Wenger in the next few days now that he has reduced the squad size at Arsenal?
I think it could be an interesting and exciting end of the transfer window for Arsenal, don’t you?
