With Clichy having joined Manchester City, there is a lot of discussion as to what are Arsenal going to do with the left-back position. I know a lot of people believe that we do not need to buy anyone as we should use Gibbs to fill in that position. Which for me would not be a bad thing if we are unable to bring in another experienced defender.
Wenger stated this summer that we suffered last season as we did not have big enough defenders and that this summer he would be looking at adding some big players to the squad. Now Gibbs is not the biggest of players out there but I have faith in him.
The Mirror is however reporting that Arsenal could now be after Lyon left-back Aly Cissokho to come in and replace Clichy. I am a big fan of Cissokho and believe that he would be a great replacement for Clichy. However, the £11million price tag on him may just put Wenger off.
