Arsenal are set to start a fresh search for a new left-back after giving up on their bid to sign Celtic star Kieran Tierney this summer, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Arsenal have made a number of bids to sign the 22-year-old from the Scottish Premier League champions so far this summer.

The same article states that Celtic knocked back the north London side’s most recent bid of £25m plus add-ons for the Scotland international last week.

According to the same story, Arsenal and Celtic have reached a stalemate over the sale of Tierney as talks between the two clubs have come to a deadlock.

The Daily Mirror goes on to state that Arsenal will begin their search for a different option at left-back after conceding defeat in their attempts to bring Tierney to the English capital.

The media outlet goes on to state that the Europa League runners-up are also unlikely to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking to build a squad capable of challenging for a top-four finish this season after the Gunners ended up in fifth spot last term.

The north London side lost 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final last term.
