Hoops up Tierney valuation amid Arsenal interest

Transfers
Celtic have reportedly set Kieran Tierney's asking price at £25million in the hope of warding off interest from Arsenal.

Celtic have reportedly set Kieran Tierney’s asking price at £25million in the hope of warding off interest from Arsenal.

The Gunners have placed two bids for Tierney, the first being £15m and a second, improved offer of £18m but both have been rejected and they are still way off matching the valuation for the Scotland international.

The Bhoys’ asking price would mean the north London outfit spending over half of their £45million transfer budget on the 22-year-old, who missed much of last season with a hip problem.

Arsenal are likely to return with a third offer for Tierney, who is demanding wages in the region of £70,000-per-week to leave his boyhood club.

The Emirates Stadium outfit are not alone in wanting to sign Tierney though with Serie A side Napoli and Leicester City, now managed by ex-Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, understood to be monitoring the situation.

Meanwhile, Liverpool defender and Scotland international Andy Robertson has taken to Twitter to deny reports he has advised Tierney to leave Parkhead.

Quoting a piece in which it was claimed Robertson had informed his compatriot he would be better of playing in the Premier League, the Reds ace wrote: ‘Lot of rubbish.’
