A lot of Arsenal fans have been wondering for years about the possibility of our left back Kieran Gibbs making the decision to leave Arsenal and seek more regular game time at another club. After his early playing career with the Gunners was plagued by injury the former England international who has not been capped by the Three Lions since 2015 seemed to be set for a first team place and was neck and neck with Nacho Monreal for a while – but now seems to be a distant second choice in the mind of Arsene Wenger.
Perhaps Gibbs is not that bothered, because if he was you would think he would already have gone to another Premier League club where his international career may have been helped. Maybe that is why the Gunners are struggling to offload him now.
The defender will be 28-years old in a couple of months but according to a report in The Mirror he does not seem all that desperate to secure a transfer, as he is said to be demanding a weekly salary of around £70,000 – which is a bit steep to say the least for a player who made just 11 appearance in the league last season.
Reports had been saying that Arsenal were looking to get something like £15 million for the player but are now seeking around half that, probably because his wage demands are too high, so is Gibbs going to just stay at Arsenal and collect the cash? Or will someone take a chance on this talented but unfulfilled left back?
