According to reports from down south, Unai Emery is a fan of the Scotland international. Tierney is in-demand during the close season with many clubs with one eye on him.
However, Arsenal would be the wrong move for his career for a variety of reasons.
Arsenal want Kieran Tierney
The Daily Mail are reporting the heightening interest in Tierney today.
The newspaper are calling the 22-year-old Arsenal’s top target as the manager eyes a higher league position.
Emery’s Gunners aren’t the strongest team in the league when it comes to defending. This said, Arsenal do like attacking full-backs and that will come in barrel loads from Tierney.
He spent much of last season out with injury and didn’t look the same on return before his operation.
However, Tierney is on a long-term Celtic contract and it will cost an arm and a leg to bring him to London. Tierney is one of the most promising talents in the league and has already accomplished a lot.
With nine and 10-in-a-row looming, the boyhood fan may look to stay a couple of years longer.
Even at that, a move away from Celtic to Arsenal isn’t one Tierney should be making.
Kieran Tierney can aim higher than Arsenal
The sky is the limit for Tierney who is showing he can cope in any footballing environment.
A move to the Gunners will bring the bigger wage packet a week and the chance to play in the Premier League.
However, there is no other logical reason for Tierney to leave Celtic for Arsenal just yet.
The big money is already in his future and he will play at a higher level in time.
Going to Arsenal will hardly further his career all that much as Arsenal don’t set a high bar. Flip flopping around fourth place and a half-decent Europa League run is hardly enticing.
After Tierney completes nine and 10-in-a-row he should set his sights on a bigger team in the hope of being part of history elsewhere.
