​West Brom are reportedly chasing Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs this summer, and are expected to table an offer between £10m and £12m to capture the signature of the English full-back.

According to respected football journalist Jim White on Twitter, the Baggies are keen on the deal, as it appears to be part of Tony Pulis' plans to decrease the average age of his veteran-filled squad.

Despite enjoying a successful campaign last season, criticism was aimed at the Midlands side for fielding the oldest side in the Premier League as well as occasionally not playing the most attractive football.

However, the resourceful Tony Pulis is now making headway this summer to inject more youth and pace into his solid but at times, slow outfit. This project has already begun at the Hawthorns, with the club bringing in former Southampton star Jay Rodriguez for £12m and Egyptian defender Ahmed Hegazi on a loan deal.

Now, it seems Pulis wants to build upon the progress West Brom have made so far in the transfer window, and bring Gibbs in from Arsenal ahead what is to be another highly competitive season.

Gibbs has played over 100 games for the Gunners and will surely be a welcome addition into the Baggies team this summer.
