Watford withdraw interest in Kieran Gibbs 0

Posted on June 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Evening Standard, Watford have pulled out of a deal to sign Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs, with the defender’s asking price too high for the Hornets to match. A host of clubs were previously linked with the Gunners defender but interest has waned as the summer as gone on.

Gibbs is believed to be for sale this summer but will cost £15m to sign, an asking price too lofty for a player who’s hardly featured in the last two seasons, so Watford will now turn their attention to Middlesbrough’s George Friend. Arsenal are keen to cut a left-back off the wage bill as they currently have Nacho Monreal, Gibbs and new-boy Sead Kolasinac as options.
