Report: Arsenal finalising five-year deal for club's 'best trainer'; ace is set to earn £110k-p/w
Arsenal are finalising a five-year contract for Kieran Tierney, according to David Ornstein.
The publication is claiming that the Scotsman will put pen-to-paper on the contract after his participation at Euro 2020.
It’s being reported that the player has received a pay-rise and will now earn £110k-per-week.
Tierney is away with Scotland at the country’s first appearance at a major tournament since 1998.
He missed the opening game loss to Czech Republic after picking up an injury in training.
However, he endured an injury-hit campaign, suffering knee and groin issues. The ace still made 38 appearances as he helped the side reach the semi-finals of the Europa League.
Troy Deeney dubbed Tierney ‘the best trainer’.
Tierney contract agreement massive news for Arsenal
Recent reports have claimed that the club are targeting many players in their pursuit to strengthen the squad.
However, the best bit of news is that Tierney has agreed a new contract with Arsenal.
It will be a massive boost for the Gunners after what was a desperately poor campaign last year. After finishing eighth and outside the European places, there may well have been fears the likes of Tierney could leave.
However, he’s here to stay and what a massive boost he can provide.
His blend of defence and attack has been sensational since he moved to the Emirates Stadium in 2019.
One-on-one, the star proves extremely difficult to beat. However, his real quality comes in the final third. No Arsenal player created more chances from open-play than the Scotland international (41).
Despite the fact he’s a defender, he’s also one of Arteta’s most crucial creative players. And that in itself is a display of how important he is to the team.
Arteta has lavished him with praise claiming he is a future captain of the club. And it’s no surprise with the defender showing off moments of leadership throughout the last two seasons.
The news Tierney has agreed a new contract is a massive boost for Arsenal. It seems the north London giants will retain the ace for the majority of his prime.
