Arsenal make breakthrough as £25m deal becomes ‘inevitable’

Date published: Sunday 14th July 2019 9:15

Arsenal have made ‘an improved bid in the region of £25m’ for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners were thought to be “taking the p*ss” with an offer of £15m for the left-back earlier this summer.

But they remained ‘confident’ over the deal despite the added complication of interest from Napoli.

BBC Scotland’s sports news correspondent Chris McLaughlin says Arsenal have now ‘approached’ Celtic with ‘an improved bid in the region of £25m’ to land their target.

The story even comes with David Ornstein’s seal of approval, with the great man retweeting his colleague.

A Sun exclusive says Celtic feel the deal is “inevitable”, while the Daily Record report that the offer will be partly comprised of a smaller initial fee and ‘appearance-based add-ons’.

Napoli are still interested in Tierney, but have yet to raise the funds to meet the asking price.
