Arsenal’s move for Kieran Tierney hits a wall with Celtic holding out for £25m after rejecting several bids

  • Arsenal have had several offers for Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney rejected
  • Gunners want to stagger payments whereas Celtic want more money up front  
  • London club are now weighing up whether they should  look at other targets   

Arsenal are beginning to reconsider their transfer options after hitting a wall in their attempts to land Kieran Tierney.

Arsenal have made several bids for Celtic‘s £25m-rated captain Tierney, 22, who wants to move south, rejected.

The Gunners want to stagger payments whereas Celtic want more money guaranteed up front and less promised in future add-ons, with the ones suggested so far deemed unrealistic by the Scottish giants.

Arsenal are now weighing up whether they would be better served strengthening other departments of their squad than allocating more of their £45m budget to a new move for Tierney.

They already have Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac as left-back options and also need a centre-back, midfielder and winger.

St Etienne’s William Saliba is due to have his medical on Tuesday ahead of a £27m switch but the 18 year-old defender will be loaned back to the French club for the season, leaving Arsenal still in the market for a senior centre-back who can come in straight away.

They are confident of tying up a loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and remain interested in Wilfried Zaha despite his hefty price tag.

Arsenal have seen a £40m bid rejected and also seen their attempts to include players-plus-cash knocked back during discussions between the clubs.

Meanwhile Arsenal chiefs will have more talks with want-away captain Laurent Koscielny to try and resolve his situation following their return from their pre-season tour of America.

Defender Koscielny, 33, went on strike and refused to travel as he wants to leave on a free, despite having a year left on his deal.

Bordeaux want Koscielny but Rennes have ruled out a move.
