Arsenal Could Still Complete Shock £20million Deal For Left-Back

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs could reportedly become Sam Allardyce’s first signing as Crystal Palace boss.

Gibbs, 27, has made 221 first-team appearances for Arsenal since breaking into the senior side in 2007, but the defender has struggled for regular action in recent seasons due to the form of Nacho Monreal.

The left-back’s Arsenal deal will expire in the summer of 2018 and it is understood that contract talks are yet to begin as the two parties consider parting ways.

According to The Sun, new Palace boss Allardyce wants a new left-back and the experienced manager will attempt to land Gibbs when the January transfer window opens for business.

Gibbs made just his second league start of the season in Arsenal’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on December 26.
