According to the Daily Record, Arsenal have chosen to end their pursuit of Kieran Tierney after Celtic rejected another bid for the left back.
The Gunners have spent much of this summer trying to persuade the Scottish champions to sell the 22 year old, initially offering £15m, then coming back with two increased offers, neither of which have been deemed acceptable.
Although it’s believed we met the £25m valuation, the way the deal was structured saw the Hoops turn down our bid, and it now appears as if we’ll be looking elsewhere for a left back.
Earlier this week Unai Emery spoke about how the club’s approach to deals this summer is to focus on their number one choice for a position, and when that is exhausted then they’ll move on to alternative options.
The news comes after reports that Dani Ceballos is expected to join from Real Madrid on a season long loan, and the William Saliba deal is expected to confirmed this week too.
Quite who we have our eyes on for left back remains to be seen, but no doubt some names will emerge soon.
