Italian journalist says Arsenal deal to sign 22-year-old should progress ‘over next few days’

Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianeli has provided an update on the next deal Arsenal are working on, with the arrival of Nicolas Pepe widely deemed as imminent.

The Gunners were beaten by Chelsea in the final of the Europa League in May as they missed out on Champions League qualification for another year.

That loss has prompted the club to spend heavily this summer and with virtually four signings in the bag, a deal for Kieran Tierney now appears to be on the way.

The 22-year-old has been on the radar of the Gunners all summer, with Celtic proving to be stubborn in negotiations so far.

However, with not too long left in the summer transfer window, Arsenal appear to be on course to sign Tierney. According to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianeli, the club is expected to make progress ‘over the next few days’ in their pursuit of the defender.
