Newcastle United have been linked with moves for both Kieran Gibbs and Carl Jenkinson this summer - and the duo have been left out of Arsenal’s pre-season tour to Australia and China.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly omitted Gibbs, Jenkinson, striker Lucas Perez and former Newcastle right-back Mathieu Debuchy from his 25-man touring party - while midfielder Jack Wilshere will not travel either as he continues his recovery from a leg fracture.

That has led to increased speculation that Gibbs, Jenkinson, Perez and Debuchy have all been made available for transfer this summer .
