Tierney considers Premier League move amid rising interest

Tierney considers Premier League move amid rising interest Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has reportedly had his head turned by the growing Premier League interest in his services, according to reports. Football Insider reports that the Glasgow club could demand upwards of £20 million for their star man, a price Leicester won’t mind paying should they receive big money for Ben Chilwell. Tierney certainly has a bright future ahead and has been crucial in Celtic’s ‘treble Treble’ success and was a favourite under Brendan Rodgers during the now-Leicester boss’ time in Scotland.

Arsenal ’s new head coach Unai Emery kept talking about a ‘project’. Well, this is the sort of ‘project’ He said eight candidates were interviewed and claimed none withdrew their interest — although the Gazidis now has his own office at Arsenal ’s training ground and has been known to sign autographs

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has reportedly had his head turned by the recent Premier League interest, but is he the perfect signing for Arsenal?

According to Football Insider, the Gunners and Leicester are both vying for his signature this summer and it now looks like he could be keen to make the move happen.

The left-back position has been a problem area for Unai Emery since he first took over and Tierney would certainly solve that.

He is both young and experienced for someone of his age, he has won numerous titles in Scotland and has Champions League exposure under his belt.

Full of pace, Tierney looks like an outstanding long-term replacement for Nacho Monreal.

Given that he would be coming from the Scottish Premiership, not what you would consider one of Europe’s major leagues, he would be far cheaper, especially if he tries to force a move, than some of the other reported transfer targets.

With Arsenal working on limited budgets this summer, it could be an astute piece of business to snap up Tierney and solve a major issue in their defence.

Arsenal must pay more to sign Tierney says Neil Lennon.
Neil Lennon has revealed that Arsenal must pay a lot more to sign Celtic’s Kieran Tierney, according to reports from the Telegraph. Tierney, who has been linked with several moves away from the Hoops over the years, has now been heavily touted with a switch to Arsenal. The Gunners had an opening offer of £15 million rejected for Tierney earlier this month, but are still hopeful of securing a deal for the Scottish international. Celtic have constantly stated that Tierney is not for sale, and value the defender closer to £25 million, something that may be a stumbling block for the Gunners.
