Arsenal ready to sell another defensive ace this summer

Arsenal star Kieran Gibbs is set to leave the club this summer as manager Arsene Wenger plans to overhaul his squad, Telegraph reports.

The 26-year-old has been unable to break into the starting 11 after losing his role to first-choice left-back Nacho Monreal this season.

It is now believed that Wenger is set to transfer list the England international as a host of other stars are also expected to depart during the upcoming window.

Apart from the defender, contract expiring midfield trio Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta, and Mathieu Flamini are amongst the names set for an exit in the summer.

Mathieu Debuchy is another player also expected to leave the Emirates, as he was sent on loan to Ligue 1 outfits Bordeaux last month after failing to regain back his regular place at right-back following an injury spell.

The Gunners boss could be given a transfer budget of around the £75million region as he looks to reinforce his squad ahead of the new campaign.

Gibbs has only started two Premier League fixtures this term, featuring another 11 times from the bench, so far managing to score one goal.
