Arsenal clear favourites to sign Celtic’s Kieran Tierney – SkyBet

As per the latest odds from SkyBet, Premier League giants Arsenal lead the race to secure a summer deal for Celtic star Kieran Tierney.

Celtic standout

22-year-old left-back Tierney has long been viewed as one of the finest talents to emerge from Scotland over the course of the last decade.

Despite his tender years, the stopper has already racked up well over 150 appearances for Celtic’s first-team, after breaking into the club’s senior setup for the first time in 2015.

Tierney is the complete modern full-back, combining solid defensive instincts and ability in the tackle with a stellar engine and creative streak.

Perfectly summing up the latter of these traits is the fact that the Hoops’ dynamo racked up 5 goals and 22 assists in the league alone over the last 4 seasons.

In many ways, Tierney can be likened in playing style to fellow countryman Andy Robertson.

Arsenal bound?

As such, Tierney’s fine form and room for growth have inevitably seen the 12-time capped international linked with a move away from Celtic Park.

Last summer saw Manchester United hotly-tipped with a move for Tierney. In the end, however, a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise.

As per the latest bookmakers’ odds, though, the Celtic standout could yet make his way to England this summer.

This comes amid rumoured interest from Arsenal in Tierney’s services.

The Gunners are known to be on the lookout for left-back reinforcements, with Nacho Monreal entering the twilight years of his career, and Sead Kolasinac being tipped for a surprise move to Spanish champions Barcelona.

As such, Tierney is seemingly viewed as the ideal addition by Unai Emery and co., with SkyBet viewing Arsenal as odds-on favourites to secure a deal for the marauding full-back over the coming months.

Fellow Premier League outfit Leicester City are 2nd favourites, albeit by some distance, at 8/1.

Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Inter Milan are all also credited with an interest in Tierney.
