Celtic defender Kieran Tierney is reportedly on Arsenal’s radar.

According to The Scottish Sun, Arsenal are willing to pay Celtic defender Kieran Tierney £70,000 per week as wages.

The Gunners reportedly want to sign Tierney from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the Premier League are willing to pay the Scotland international left-back £70,000 per week as salary and hand him a five-year contract.

Too tempting to resist?

Tierney is a Celtic fan and loves the Glasgow giants, but Arsenal’s reported offer could be too tempting to resist for the 22-year-old.

True, Celtic are a massive club, but the Premier League is much richer, and the left-back may not get too many offers of the one that the Gunners reportedly have for him.

It could be too tempting for Tierney not to join Arsenal at the reported £70,000-a-week salary, and the defender could even use the Gunners as a stepping stone to move to a bigger club in the coming years, such as Real Madrid.
