Liverpool have enquired about Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs.
The Reds are looking around for left-back reinforcements and have shown an interest in Hull City about Andy Robertson and Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand.
Their interest in Robertson has cooled, while Manchester City are keen on England star Bertrand – although they have a preference for Monaco’s Benjamin Mendy.
Liverpool remain actively interested in Roberton and Bertrand, but now I understand they also have an interest in England international Gibbs – who is set to be surplus to requirement at The Emirates following the signing of Sead Kolasinac and the emergence of former non-league ace Cohen Bramall.
27-year-old Gibbs has come through the youth ranks at the club, and has over 200 games under his belt – but he has found first team opportunities harder to come by in recent seasons and it is understood that he has been told that he would be allowed to leave this summer.
Now Liverpool are considering a move for Gibbs, who would be available at a relatively reasonable rate – in Premier League terms – mainly due to the fact he has just 12-month left on his current deal.
Liverpool have a hefty list of summer transfer targets, and the chance to land Gibbs – who would clearly fit into the Jurgen Klopp system – is understandably an option they are now considering.
Liverpool are currently rated at 5/1 to land Gibbs with BetVictor.
