The Englishman has seen his importance regress at Arsenal over the duration of recent seasons, and consequently, it could be that Gibbs is willing to depart the north London club this summer. The 27-year-old is the type of player that Benitez would be hoping to attract, a player endowed with considerable experience in England’s top division with one of Europe’s most prestigious team.
For a team that is devoid of Premier League experience and outstanding players, Gibbs could be the perfect acquisition – while also addressing the club’s issues at left-back. His defensive contribution is excellent, and his ability to retain possession is also excellent. It will be a marvellous signing and a statement of great intent if Gibbs moves to St James’ Park this window.
