Arsenal reopen Kierney talks

Arsenal have reopened talks with Celtic about the proposed transfer of Kieran Tierney.

Discussions between the two sides appeared to have reached a stalemate, after the Scottish champions refused to accept Arsenal’s proposed payment structure, despite having met their £25 million valuation for the layer.

The Gunners wanted part of the fee to be paid in instalments and to be based on add-ons, whilst the Hoops were insisting that the full amount should be paid, with no provisos or other preconditions.

However, talks have now been resumed, with the two clubs not far apart in their valuation, and Arsenal believe that can reach an agreement with Celtic that will be acceptable to both sides.

The 22-year old boyhood Celtic fan is not agitating for a move, but is open to the prospect of joining Arsenal. That is not only because it will substantially increase his weekly salary, but also because playing in a more high profile league will enhance his chances of competing successfully with Liverpool’s Andy Robertson for the left-back spot in the Scottish National side.
