Arsenal consider selling left-back: Three clubs who should sign Kieran Gibbs

Liverpool, Newcastle United and West Brom should all consider Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs.

Arsenal are considering selling Kieran Gibbs, The Guardian report, with Arsene Wenger having lined up a replacement already.

Gibbs has lost his place in the team to Nacho Monreal, while Lorient left-back Raphaël Guerreiro is claimed by The Guardian to be a top target for Arsenal.

The defender has been capped by England although he is not in this squad, and has struggled with injuries during his time with Arsenal.

Here is a look at three clubs who could or should look to sign 26-year-old Gibbs this coming summer.


While Gibbs has had his injury problems, his quality and experience should not be underestimated. Liverpool could choose to sell Alberto Moreno back to a La Liga side in the summer, and buy Gibbs while remaining in profit. This would allow them to line up with two full-backs who started for England in the same side during their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, with Nathaniel Clyne at right-back.

Newcastle United

Newcastle's deficiencies in defence have been clear throughout the season, and Gibbs was even touted as a deadline day signing for the Magpies, The Mail reported. Gibbs would improve on the club's current options even if he were to play only 25 or so league games, but a deal would surely be dependent on Newcastle clinching Premier League survival, with the defender unlikely to drop down to the Championship.

West Bromwich Albion

West Brom may not be able to match the Champions League football Gibbs is used to, but there could be a starting spot available for him. The Baggies have had to experiment with centre-back James Chester in the position this season, while Chris Brunt was never supposed to be a permanent solution in the position.
