Arsenal boss Unai Emery would flex ambition with move for Celtic star Kieran Tierney
Arsenal are firmly in the hunt to secure a return to the Champions League with a top-four finish this season.
They are currently occupying fourth place and sit two points ahead of rivals Manchester United.
The Gunners have been in the Champions League wilderness for two seasons and boss Unai Emery would cap a fine first season by returning.
Obtaining a place among Europe’s elite would be ideal financially.
It looks as though Arsenal will only have £45 million to work with during the summer (Daily Mail).
Attracting players won’t be a problem should Arsenal reach the Champions League.
Emery’s budget is likely to be harnessed should the Gunners offload some players.
Celtic’s Kieran Tierney is thought to be firmly on Arsenal’s radar.
According to Metro, the left-back is one of Emery’s summer targets as he looks to shore up a defensive unit that is sometimes suspect.
Tierney is thought to be valued at £25 million by his club, according to the Daily Record.
Nacho Monreal has played left-back this season but the jury remains out on the Spaniard.
Tierney is seen as a star of the future and he is exactly the sort of player Arsenal should be targeting.
The Hoops performer is only 21-years-old but already has 166 appearances under his belt for the club.
As a result, he would represent a quality signing for Emery if he can land him this summer.
Arsenal aren’t a million miles away from being a club capable of challenging once again.
The signing of Tierney could complete the jigsaw as far as Emery is concerned.
