Arsenal very close to allowing at least one player to leave this week

Arsenal has begun clearing out unwanted players from their first team squad after failing to qualify for the Champions League.

The failure to make it into Europe’s top competition has made it imminent for them to overhaul their squad and Arsene Wenger is prepared to make the required changes.

In the latest news from the unwanted group of Gunners, Kieran Gibbs may be on his way to West Brom after the Gunners lowered their asking price for his signature. The England man who has been at Arsenal for much of his career has seen his career stalled after suffering persistent injuries.

He is set to be the Gunners third choice left back this season after they completed the free transfer of Sead Kolasinac from Schalke 04.

West Brom manager, Tony Pulis is desperate to sign a new specialist left back after using Allan Nyom, and Jonny Evans in that position last season.

The Gunners have previously valued the 27 years old Gibbs at £12 million, but with that price not attracting any takers, they are now willing to listen to offers for as low as £8 million. © 2017 Frontier Theme
