The long-running transfer saga involving the Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney and Arsenal has finally got the conclusion, with the 22-year-old heading towards London to sign a contract with the Gunners
The Premier League giants have been chasing the Scotland international ever since the transfer window opened, and their efforts have finally given a result.
The Gunners will pay £25million to take Tierney away from Celtic Park, with the player expected for medicals tomorrow to finalize the move, according to The Sun.
Although they’ve seen their initial £20million bid rejected by the Hoops, determined Arsenal chiefs have improved the offer to land Unai Emery’s long-held dream just before the deadline.
Emery is a firm admirer of the pacey left-back and could give him a chance to make his debut for Arsenal already this weekend when the North Londoners face Newcastle United in the opening match of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.
Known for his pinpoint crosses and tireless runs down the left flank, Tierney should bring energy and quality to Arsenal’s shaky backline.
