The big headline from Scottish outlet Sunday Post that has got Arsenal fans excited this morning

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on signing Celtic’s Kieran Tierney according to The Sunday Post.

Arsenal look to be winning the fight to sign Kieran Tierney. The Gunners have been locked in a battle with Italian giants, Napoli, for the Celtic left-back, and have had two bids for the player turned down.

But now they’re set to make a third attempt – a down payment of £20m, plus £5m of add-ons – to match Celtic’s valuation of the 22-year-old.

The North Londoners are in daily talks with the player and they believe that he wants to join them.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon had confirmed a few days ago that Arsenal’s £15 million bid for full-back Kieran Tierney is well short of the club’s valuation of the player, and they will have to offer much more to land him.

He’s on a long-term contract, he’s an asset and we don’t want to sell him.

said the Celtic manager.

Despite this the Gunners remained optimistic and according to Sunday Post, a third bid has been made and it matches the valuation of Celtic.

Given the pace and energy he brings into the game, Gunners boss Unai Emery sees Tierney as a great option to play on the left wing.

The Scotsman is a solid defender who likes to go forward with his dribbling ability, and Arsenal would hope that he makes a similar impact in the Premier League like his fellow countryman Andrew Robertson did at Liverpool.

Regarded as one of Scotland’s top talents, Tierney has been the regular left-back for Celtic and made his international debut back in 2016.

As Steven Gerrard’s men hosted the Dons in the Scottish Cup quarter-final replay, Ibrox was brimming with spectators. Some carrying crossed fingers and some carrying their lucky charms. One spectator, albeit virtual, caught everyone by surprise, though.

Celtic’s flying left-back, Kieran Tierney was caught watching the Rangers go 2-0 down to Aberdeen in a live stream.

Here’s the proof –

The 21-year-old left-back has been attracting a lot of attention since last summer on the back of an impressive season with the Hoops. The Scottish prodigy attracted even more attention as he tuned in to the live stream of the quarter-final replay between Rangers and Aberdeen.

Celtic supporters took to Twitter, licking their lips in light of KT joining the live stream, with some supporters even going so far as to brand it an act of class.

Perhaps Mr. Tierney was tuning in to have a cheeky look at Celtic’s opponents in the semi-finals. No prizes for guessing whom they face in the next round of the Scottish Cup. Interestingly, Celtic also host Rangers after a trip to Dundee FC.

The Scottish Cup was Rangers’ best chance of silverware this season, with Celtic having opened up a comfortable gap at the top of the table in the SPFL, effectively ending their hopes of the title.

Aberdeen’s victory over the Gers not only meant that the win extended Steven Gerrard’s wait for a taste of silverware, but it also meant that Celtic now face Aberdeen in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup, which further elucidates the impression that the Scot was on a wee little scouting mission.
