Arsenal & Celtic’s Kieran Tierney: Agreement is close

According to the Scottish Daily Mail on Wednesday, Arsenal seem to be on the verge of signing Celtic’s Kieran Tierney.

Arsenal’s pursuit of Tierney has been going on for weeks.

Indeed, Celtic manager Neil Lennon has publicly discussed Arsenal’s bids for the defender. Lennon has previously confirmed that Arsenal have failed to meet Celtic’s valuation.

However, the Scottish Daily Mail today tell readers that Arsenal are to meet Celtic’s “magic number”.

That figure is 25 million pounds.

Nicolas Pepe may complete his transfer to Arsenal from Lille today.

Dani Ceballos, meanwhile, has already joined Arsenal on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.
