John Collins has suggested four players to BeIN Sports that Tottenham Hotspur should sign in the summer – and one of those is Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.
Tottenham earned a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night at the new stadium thanks to goals from Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen. It was an excellent way to start at their new home.
Now the stadium is built, Mauricio Pochettino may be given money to spend this summer. The cost of the stadium has been a contributing factor in the north Londoners not signing any new players in the past two windows.
Celtic legend Collins has suggested left-back Tierney as a possible signing, along with Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot, Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.
“If I was in charge of Tottenham’s recruitment, I’d have Rabiot, Ndombele, Tierney and Zaha,” Collins said. “Tierney has got a very big future, but I don’t know if he is as good as Andrew Robertson.
“Robertson is world class. He’s a bit older as well. But they are both very good players.”
The Sun claim Tierney is worth £25million and is interesting Arsenal ahead of the summer window. At such a figure, Tottenham would be more than capable of landing the Scotland international.
Spurs currently boast Ben Davies and Danny Rose on the left side of defence. Davies is certainly not performing to the level he was a couple of years ago, while Rose is far beneath his best.
Tierney, meanwhile, is a class above Celtic. Yes, fans want him to be a one-club man. But realistically, the Celtic academy product needs to take his career to the next level – rather than settling at Celtic.
