BBC journalist reveals Arsenal have received response after ‘second offer’ for player
The Gunners have received a response after making an offer to secure what would have been Unai Emery’s second signing of the summer transfer window.
Arsenal finished last season in fifth place, despite having a decent opportunity to secure a place in the Champions League for the first time in two years.
That abject failure means the Arsenal faithful is expecting a host of new signings this summer to bolster what appears to be a very thin squad.
Thus, Emery has been looking to sign Kieran Tierney from Celtic, a young talent who could solve the team’s problems at left-back.
However, according to BBC journalist Chris McLaughlin, the Gunners’ ‘second offer’ of £25 million has been rejected by Celtic.
It remains to be seen whether Arsenal will now return with a third offer but any hopes of a deal for Tierney seem to be fading, considering the club’s tight budget this summer.
