Report: Kieran Tierney will not push for Celtic exit despite Arsenal’s imminent third bid

Kieran Tierney is wanted by Arsenal.

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney is not actively seeking an exit this summer as Arsenal prepare a third bid, according to The Daily Record.

Arsenal have already made two bids for Celtic star Tierney this summer – both of which have been rejected. The Gunners are preparing to return with a third offer, although the transfer fee will not rise.

 

Celtic recently rejected Arsenal’s bid of around £25m but that included a low upfront fee paid to the Scottish champions and plenty of add-ons. Rather than offer more money, Arsenal will compromise with the payment structure of this deal with the total cost still totalling around £25m.

However, this article adds that Tierney will not force through a move to North London. The homegrown left-back is a boyhood Celtic fan and he seems happy in Glasgow.

Tierney has not asked to move and he will wait to see whether Celtic’s asking price is matched before considering a move away. He will only leave if Celtic decide the transfer fee is worth it.

What should Tierney do?

At such a young age, Tierney already has plenty of first-team experience at Celtic and he is in a settled environment. The chance to move to Arsenal is not a one-off; he will get good offers in the future.

If the 22-year-old does leave, Celtic are in a good position to cope. They have signed a potential replacement (Boli Mbombo) and would receive a sizeable transfer fee to boost their warchest. Celtic are under no pressure to sell if they do not need to.
