With Paul Cook preparing for his first full season in charge, he has been seriously backed by the new owners at Portman Road to reshape the squad for a promotion push.
Despite several new faces already arriving, further additions are expected and the East Anglian Daily Times have confirmed that Gibson is a target.
The 20-year-old, who spent last season loan with Reading, is entering the final year of his contract at Goodison Park and there is a feeling that a deal can be done.
Are these 17 facts about Ipswich Town’s club badge true or false?
With Gibson highly-rated and boasting Football League experience following loans with the Royals and Fleetwood in the past, many fans would see him as the ideal signing, particularly as Ipswich are lacking numbers defensively.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the rumour from Twitter…

I like this a lot. Left footed centre back, Championship and L1 experience. Good option for Reading last season, but when he joined Fleetwood in January 2020, he featured 11 times and only lost once. Permanent would be impressive, cost Everton up to £6mill four years ago#itfc https://t.co/CSLkMYQqoY
