Liverpool reportedly interested in £12m Arsenal player


As Liverpool Echo reports, via Football Insider, Liverpool could be chasing Arsenal’s left-back Kieran Gibbs, whose price is set somewhere around £12m.

According to the source, Arsenal could be willing to listen to offers for the young defender, so it is quite possible that he could be on his way out.

On the other hand, Liverpool’s weakest position is currently left-back, with only the less than impressive Alberto Moreno playing in that position. Young Joe Gomez can fill that place if needed, but the Reds are still going to need some natural left-back.

Gibbs is tied to the Gunners until 2018, but there are no indications that Arsenal is going to get in talks with him about his contract being extended.

With all this being said, and Gibbs starting only three games in the Premier League last season for the Gunners, it seems like his transfer to Liverpool has a really great chance of happening.



  1. Gibbs is not a reserve because he’s not good but because he’s competing with the most consistent left back in the league for the past two seasons now. Most arsenal fans dont even want him to leave because they know monreal is not getting any younger and gibbs is more than capable of replacing him.

  2. Although Gibbs is a good player I’d much rather get a current German international, who plays in a league as good as ours, as opposed to an Arsenal reserve. We’ve got to catch Arsenal, and then overtake them, so quite how we are supposed to do that by signing players from them that aren’t good enough for their team somewhat mystifies me??????????
    No, if there is any sanity in the world then Hector must be our man! You don’t get into the German team, on a regular basis, if you aren’t a very good player!
    And, of course, they are both supposed to be costing about £12m so is it a current international or a reserve from one of our big rivals?
