The 2019/20 campaign looks like being a big one for Arsenal, with the Gunners likely to go in search of regaining a place in the Champions League.
Next season will be Arsenal’s third in succession without gracing Europe’s elite club tournament and that simply won’t do.
Spanish boss Unai Emery knows that part of his remit is to make the Gunners great again and a return to the Champions League must be the starting point.
The club came close last season.
A fifth-place finish in the league was followed up by a loss in the Europa League Final, proving a season of unfortunate fine margins for the Gunners.
In order to really kick on next season, some new recruits will be needed at the Emirates.
A report in the Daily Mail suggests that Emery wants to heighten his interest in Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, with a £20 million bid in the offing.
The 22-year-old defender is likely to be a wanted man this summer and the Gunners look set to test their resolve.
It is a signing that the Gunners fans are desperate to see completed.
In recent seasons the club hasn’t perhaps attracted as many star players as their fans would have liked.
Twitter has been awash with excitable tweets from Arsenal supporters since this news broke, however, and they seemingly want this one to come to fruition.
We looked at the best tweets from Arsenal fans on Kieran Tierney:
Announce Kieran Tierney immediately.

I swear signing Kieran Tierney makes too much sense on all levels for Arsenal to even think about it. Ideal player for that position and that's exactly why it won't happen. #AFC

Kieran Tierney for Carl Jenkinson + cash. Make it happen Arsenal.

According to reports, Emery has made Kieran Tierney his number one left back target. For me, he’d be a superb signing. Solid defensively, superb going forward, affordable, young & wouldn’t demand a particularly big wage. It’s a risk, but look at VvD/Robertson. I’d be all for it.

As if Arsenal would get Kieran Tierney for £20m, would be a great signing no doubt but no chance we would get him for that pretty sure Celtic would demand £30m minimum

Just saw us being linked with @kierantierney1 . Been following him since he made his debut for Celtic.He is great going forward and also really good defensively. Plus he is a Football manager 19 beast too.? Sign him up @Arsenal #COYG #KieranTierney

It's imperative that Arsenal don't lose out on Kieran Tierney. He's as close to Andy Robertson as you're gonna get and he's the best left back in the world. Tierney will be every bit as good

Not many good left back options out there. Kieran Tierney would be a dream signing.
