According to various sources, Arsenal and Celtic have finally agreed a deal that will see Kieran Tierney become a Gunner before the transfer window closes tomorrow.
Having had two previous bids rejected by the Bhoys, Raul Sanllehi and Edu bided their time – perhaps because of the player’s injury problems – before pushing ahead with a third offer.
It sounds as though we’ve rejigged the structuring of our second proposal offering to pay more of the £25 million fee upfront.
The 22-year-old Scotland international is set to travel to London tonight and will undergo a medical tomorrow. He will pen a five-year deal with wages around the £75,000 a week mark.
Tierney could be one of two arrivals before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline. Chelsea are said to be willing to sell centre-back David Luiz, whose name has come to the fore this afternoon, for a fee of £8 million.
