Opinion: Why Arsenal Fans Should Have More Hope in Kieran Tierney Chase

Opinion: Why Arsenal Fans Should Have More Hope in Kieran Tierney Chase

Arsenal have been regularly linked with a move for Kieran Tierney this summer.

The Gunners have already had a £15million bid for the Celtic left back rejected, according to The Scottish Sun.

And that same report suggests a follow-up bid from the English Premier League outfit could be close.

But what are the chances of Celtic accepting an offer for Tierney?

Of course, it’s likely that it will all come down to price, with Celtic believed to want £25m for their prized asset.

Tierney will also have a say given he’s a Hoops diehard and has constantly reaffirmed his love for the club since emerging through the youth ranks in 2015.

But Arsenal fans may be able to take most hope from Celtic’s latest signing – Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.

The Belgian has joined the club from Rapid Vienna on a four-year deal after completing a £3m move – a figure reported by multiple publications, including The Scottish Sun.

And most significantly for Arsenal fans, he’s a left back.

Celtic desperately need cover for Tierney if he was to stick around, but the club haven’t been known to spend as much as £3m on backup players.

So you have to assume that Bolingoli-Mbombo has been signed to play.

And that surely suggests Tierney’s Celtic career could be over soon.

The left back is still recovering from a summer hernia operation so isn’t expected to be back in Hoops until next month at the earliest anyway.

But it could be Arsenal that make sure that doesn’t happen again if they can muster up the money Celtic need to sell.
