Arsenal have “opened talks” with Kieran Tierney over new contract

Tierney a shining light in Arsenal’s Dismal Season

It has been a horrible season for Arsenal fans.

Finishing eighth in the Premier League, they were knocked out of the Europa League at the semi-final stage by the manager they replaced with Mikel Arteta, ending the campaign with no European football to look forward to, and no silverware.

However, one ray of light was left-back Kieran Tierney, signed in 2019 from Scottish side Celtic. While injury hampered his first season, Tierney appeared 27 times in the Premier League this time around, providing one goal and four assists from left-back.

His value to the side was made even more clear in his absence – Arsenal struggled for creativity whilst the Scot was injured, with Cedric Soares, Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka having all filled in during his layoff. Whilst none were awful, they simply did not provide the same dynamic as the ex-Bhoy.

Indeed, many Arsenal fans have already labelled the 24-year-old as a future club captain, due to both his passion on the pitch and ability to bark orders to his team-mates.

New contract in the works

What will therefore please Arsenal fans is the fact that whilst they are yet to make a move in the transfer market, the Gunners are at least tying down their best players to long-term contracts.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that a new deal for the impressive Emile Smith Rowe is “just waiting last details”, with the Englishman set to be tied down until 2026.

And in a further piece of good news, Football.London journalist Chris Wheatley reports that the Gunners have also opened talks with Kieran Tierney about an improved deal.

How far advanced these talks are is unclear, however, it will please Arsenal fans to see one of their star performers from last season tied down to a longer deal.
