Arsenal show interest in Celtic defender, Tierney
Arsenal are set to launch a bid for Celtic defender, Kieran Tierney as part of effort to bolster their defense ahead of next season, reports the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old full-back still has four years remaining on his current contract at Celtic Park and would, therefore, attract a huge fee should Arsenal follow up their interest.
