A report claims that Arsenal will allow experienced left-back Kieran Gibbs to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer for £8m.

Arsenal will reportedly allow Kieran Gibbs to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer for £8m.

The 27-year-old has just 12 months remaining on his contract with the Gunners, and it is understood that he has been made surplus to requirements ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign.

It has previously been claimed that Arsenal wanted £15m for the experienced left-back, which had put off suitors in the shape of Watford, Newcastle United and Stoke City.

However, according to The Mirror, Gibbs's actual price tag is £8m, with head coach Arsene Wenger prepared to allow the Englishman to leave should that figure be met in this summer's transfer window.

Gibbs joined Arsenal from Wimbledon in 2007, and the full-back has made 230 appearances for the Gunners over the last 10 seasons, but he only started eight Premier League matches last term.
