Arsenal mull over Kieran Gibbs valuation

Arsenal must reduce Gibbs' asking price

Arsenal are being forced to reconsider the selling price of Kieran Gibbs after his suitors branded the £15m price tag as 'unrealistic'.

The 27-year-old is among the long list of players who could leave the Emirates this summer as Arsene Wenger plans a major rebuild of his squad ahead of the new season.

According to The London Evening Standard, the England international may have to wait for a while before knowing his next destination with the Gunners yet to lower their £15m valuation.

Watford, Stoke City have expressed an interest in the left-back signature while Premier league newcomers Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion are also keen to add the experienced campaigner to their ranks.

Gibbs is due to end his 13-year-old association with the north London club this summer with his current deal due to expire in just over a year's time.

The arrival of Sead Kolasinac had done no good to Gibbs' future as the Bosnian could be drafted straight into the starting lineup come the new season.

Gibbs managed just eight starts in the Premier League last season as he struggled with minor niggles during the course of the campaign.
