Holloway hoping to capture Kerrea

The 23-year-old failed to establish himself in Arsene Wenger's first-team plans and made only 10 appearances for the club. The full-back enjoyed spells out on loan at Cardiff, Southend, Leicester and Peterborough over the last four seasons as Arsenal looked for him to gain some valuable first-team experience. Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is looking to bolster his squad as he prepares for life in the Premier League - and Gilbert could be his first new arrival. Holloway is unlikely to have vast sums to spend in the transfer window and the fact Gilbert is available on a free transfer makes him an attractive proposition to the Bloomfield Road chief.
