Though the signing of Alexandre Lacazette kept the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern happy, things have definitely dried up on the signing front of late.
Indeed, many of the Gunners propping up our bar are under the impression that Arsene Wenger needs to sell some of the deadwood in his squad before he buys again.
To that end, reports from the London Evening Standard have gone down well today. They claim the Emirates giants are willing to drop their valuation of Kieran Gibbs in order to push the 27-year-old out the door in north London.
Gibbs has proved to be a popular figure in the Tavern, though many of our resident Gunners would like to see him leave to free up space.
The arrival of Sead Kolasinac has put Gibbs even further down the pecking order, so getting him off the wage ASAP is of paramount importance.
£7m may not seem like a lot, though losing him for free next year would be much worse.
