“We won’t be signing Kieran Gibbs,” “We have to look for players that fit what we want to do and the way we want to play. “We have three or four other targets we are desperate for. We are juggling with two at the moment and that’s not Gibbs.”
Medical Scheduled: Arsenal agree fee with West Brom for Gibbs
This evening there is another new twist to the Kieran Gibbs Transfer saga with reports coming out of England by BBC News stating that Kieran Gibbs is set for a medical with West Brom later on today. Previously the 27 year old Left back has had a move to Watford called off as the club and the player seemed unable to agree to personal terms. Now reports coming out of Sky Sports Transfer Central and BBC Sports all confirming that Gibbs is set for a medical at West Bromwich Albion. A fee of £7m is being reported by Sky Sports for the player who has previously been liked with Watford , Galatasaray and West Brom too. This was untill Tony Pulis himself ruling his team out of the race for Gibbs saying :
But now things have definitely changed in his mind with certainly reports from reputed sources all the confirming the same news that Gibbs is set for a medical with John Percy of the Telegraph most recent saying : previously reports stating that Arsenal have registered a very late interest in Centre back Jonny Evans have also emerged recently. For now it agains seems like Gibbs is on the move to another Premier League club instead of playing with the under 23s squad for the rest of the season. Tony Pulis’s side is currently short of natural left-backs with winger Chris Brunt starting the season there in the last couple of matches. Lets hope that Arsenals latest interest in Jonny Evan does not complicate the deal for our left back as i would hate to see another move for him break down. Hes a top class fellow who doesn’t cry or throw tantrum in front of the press like the other fellow Debuchy when hes not named in the team sheet. Instead he fights it out and has managed to bring the best out of Nacho in the previous years. He is someone i will miss seeing in an Arsenal shirt but for his sake i hope he gets the move he wants . Lets hope we manage to bring in another new player before the close of the window who actually helps in improving this ever stagnating squad who have made a disgrace of themselves and the club in the last match. Till the next bit of news that comes our way Come on you Gooners !!!!!
