BBC’s Ornstein claims Arsenal are hoping ‘agreement will be reached’ after making transfer offer
BBC journalist David Ornstein, who is known for leaking information regarding the Gunners’ plans in the transfer window, has revealed that Unai Emery’s side are now working on a deal.
The Arsenal boss has effectively been deemed a failure by some after his first season at the club, which has seen the Gunners miss out on Champions League football, just as they did in the final two years of Arsene Wenger’s long reign.
With the likes of Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal struggling to perform well, Emery is entitled to look for someone better than the duo to play at left back.
As a result, the Gunners have shown an interest in signing Kieran Tierney from Celtic this summer and David Ornstein has claimed that an offer has already been made to lure the young defender.
According to the BBC journalist, Arsenal are hopeful that “an agreement will be reached” over Tierney’s move to the Emirates stadium.
As reported elsewhere Arsenal have had an opening bid of £15m for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney rejected – but there is optimism an agreement will be reached between the clubs, while personal terms for the 22-year-old Scotland international shouldn’t be a problem #AFC #CelticFC
