Arsenal line up ‘sensational’ £25m bid for 21-year-old – report
Arsenal are keen on a move to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic, according to reports
Arsenal are lining up a summer transfer move to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic, according to reports in the Scottish media.
The Scottish Sun is reporting that the Gunners are preparing a “sensational” move to try and bring the 21-year-old to The Emirates this summer.
The same article says that Arsenal have been monitoring Tierney’s progress for the last two years and are now finally ready to make a move this summer.
It is claimed in the same report that Everton were also heavily interested in signing the left-back, but they were put off by Celtic’s significant asking price.
Tierney has been in good form for Celtic this season, making 15 top flight appearances and also featuring six times in the Europa League, scoring one goal.
According to the same report, Arsenal “don’t have a problem” with Celtic’s £25m valuation of Tierney and they are ready to make a move to bring him to The Emirates.
Arsenal are likely to be linked with a number of top players this summer as Unai Emery looks to add to his squad ahead of his second campaign in charge in north London.
The Gunners will travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.
