Arsenal have seen two major bids for Kieran Tierney rejected by Celtic and reports have it that the Gunners are planning to make a third bid.

The Bhoys reportedly want at least £25 million as transfer fee for the youngster and both of Arsenal’s bids have fallen short of the asking price.

Kieran Tierney has been linked with Arsenal for a couple of months now but recently there were rumours that Napoli too have grown a liking towards Kieran Tierney.

Immediately there were rumours that the Serie A side are planning to make a move for the left-back and they are more than ready to pay Celtic’s asking price.

This immediately led to doubts creeping in amongst the Arsenal fans with many claiming that they can be priced out of the Kieran Tierney transfer by Napoli.

Now though, it has been claimed that no interested club has met the demands of Celtic which means that the playing field is still level and the Gunners have a fair chance of signing the young left-back.

Allan Preston, part of the Stellar Group that represents Tierney, told BBC Sport(as reported by the Metro): ‘It is all down to Celtic – if they get a price that they believe is the correct value for Kieran Tierney he could possibly be on his way.

‘No one has hit that price yet.

‘I know Kieran really well, I had some food with him the other day. He is such an unassuming young man. He is wealthy at the moment but he doesn’t possess a watch because he isn’t into material things like this.

‘He still hangs about with his pals from when he was a youngster, he sponsors his local pub team where his pals play and he’s not into his designer gear or anything like that.

‘As the guys say, he loves Celtic. He absolutely loves Celtic. Will there be a time for Kieran Tierney to go? I think that there will be.

‘If it’s just now it will be up to the clubs that are involved – Arsenal, Napoli or whoever – to then put the money on the table and make Celtic think about this.

‘If there is a time for Kieran to go it will be up to Celtic, Peter Lawwell and the board.’
