Gibbs closes in on Watford switch

Watford have agreed a fee with Arsenal for full-back Kieran Gibbs, according to Sky Sports.

The Hornets are one of a number of clubs to have been linked with a move for the out-of-favour defender this summer with West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United also linked with a move for his services.

However, it is Marco Silva’s side who are closing in on a deal for the England international, who last season lost his place to Nacho Monreal in Arsene Wenger’s side.

He made just eight league appearances in the 2016/17 campaign and was also absent from the Gunners’ tour of the Far East this summer.

Aside from a brief loan spell with Norwich City almost a decade ago Gibbs has spent his entire career with Arsene Wenger’s side playing a total of two hundred and thirty times in all competitions, scoring six goals while he has been capped ten times for his country.
