'YES', 'Fully deserved': Some Arsenal fans react to 'great news' as Gunners open contract talks with 'best player'
Some Arsenal fans were reacting after news emerged over the future of Kieran Tierney.
According to football.london, the Scotsman is in talks with the club over a new contract.
Tierney is thought to be happy in London with the Gunners technical director Edu waiting for the board to sign off on his deal.
Mikel Arteta lauded the defender throughout last season and claimed he is captain material.
Tierney enjoyed a good campaign despite the team’s good form. He was a constant threat down the left-side and formed part of the defence which had the third-best record in the Premier League.
TBR View: Arsenal attempting to avoid past mistakes in attempt to sort out Tierney future
Arsenal’s attempt at sorting out the future of Tierney is in response to past problems.
The north Londoners are notorious for letting players run down their contracts. It occurred a few seasons ago with Aaron Ramsey as the Welshman left on a free transfer in the prime of his career.
It seems history has caused the Gunners to be proactive with the future of their key assets. Tying down their best defender is a great way of kicking off the transfer window.
Here is how fans reacted…
