Defender Kieran Tierney is set to be offered an improved new contract with Arsenal.
And he is also likely to become part of the leadership group within the squad with a number of senior figures in the dressing room set to depart the club this summer.
Tierney, who is currently with the Scotland squad preparing for the Euros, made 27n Premier League appearances for the Gunners last season, and was one of the positives in what was a disappointing campaign otherwise,
It is understood that Tierney is happy in North London and is keen to extend his stary with the North London side he joined from Celtic two years ago.
His current contract expires in 204.
Tierney is a highly popular player among the club’s supporters for his wearing shirt sleeves in the middle of window, and for turning up for matches carrying all his personal effects in a supermarket bag.
