It’s the news Arsenal fans have seemingly been waiting a lifetime for, but finally, the first real transfer update dropped over the weekend, and it got supporters excited.
David Ornstein can lay claim to being one of the most reliable Arsenal sources in world football, and when the news came from the BBC Sport journalist that club had a bid for Kieran Tierney rejected but there was optimism a deal could be reached, it sent the Gunners fan base into raptures, but it also painted an image that supporters have seen before.
Just this January we saw Arsenal stumble on deals for the likes of Yannick Carrasco and Christopher Nkunku, two players Ornstein also reported were on the club’s radar at the time, but as we know, both names didn’t join the north London side that transfer window, and now Unai Emery has to ensure the Gunners don’t stall on a deal for Tierney.
The Scottish left-back has been a player a majority of Arsenal fans want to see signed this summer, with the Celtic defender an established player in the biggest side in the Scottish Premiership and one of the most exciting prospects to come from north of the border in some time having captained both his boyhood club and Scotland already on multiple occasions.
All signs of a deal coming through all look positive, but this isn’t the first time Arsenal have been in this position, and the fans won’t stand for it if Emery manages to fail in signing Tierney this summer.
Arsenal fans, will the club sign Tierney this summer? Let us know!
