According to The Scottish Sun, Arsenal have made a £25 million bid for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners reportedly had an offer of £15m turned down for the Scotland international defender earlier, and the Premier League club are now claimed to have presented the Hoops with a £25m bid.

 

The report has claimed that it is ‘inevitable’ that the 22-year-old will leave Celtic, with Arsenal tracking the youngster since 2015 and having made the biggest offer in Scottish football history.

Stay or leave?

With Arsenal having reportedly offered £25m for Tierney, it is going to be hard for Celtic to turn it down.

It will be the biggest transfer in Scottish football history, and the Hoops could invest that money into the squad.

It could come down to Tierney and what he wants. The Scotland international is a Celtic fan, and the 22-year-old may not want to leave the Glasgow giants in the summer transfer window and may want to carry on playing for the Hoops.
