Kieran Tierney: Arsenal And Celtic reach Scottish record deal for full-back
Kieran Tierney will sign a five-year deal at Arsenal if his proposed £25m transfer from Celtic goes ahead.
The Scotland international left-back is on his way to London and looks set to sign ahead of Thursday’s Premier League deadline.
The Scotland international last played for Celtic on 4 May due to injury.
The 22-year-old, who has won five Scottish Premiership titles, made 40 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops during the 2018/19 campaign.
Speaking immediately after Celtic’s 1-1 draw away to Cluj in Champions League qualifying, manager Neil Lennon said: “I don’t know anything. I’ve said the last few days it wouldn’t surprise me [if Arsenal came back in for the player].
“If he goes, he goes with everyone’s best wishes. He’s an outstanding talent and a great kid.”
If Arsenal are able to complete the deal for Tierney, he would be Unai Emery’s fifth signing of the summer window.
