Arsenal’s pursuit of Kieran Tierney has been stuck in limbo for the past couple of weeks now but experts are hopeful that the Gunners will eventually get their man.
Arsenal have seen a £15 million bid rejected for the full-back and now they have reportedly submitted another bid which is believed to be in the region of £20 million
This is still short of Celtic’s asking price of £25 million and Neil Lennon has made it clear that the North London side will have to cough up more money if they wish to sign Kieran Tierney.
And now Chris Sutton has come out to slam Arsenal since they had the audacity to make a £15 million pound bid for a top-rated talent like Kieran Tierney.
“Kieran Tierney should be insulted by Arsenal’s bids for him,” Sutton said in the Daily Record(as reported).
“Celtic and Scottish football should also be seeing disrespect in what the Gunners are offering.
“Yet again I’m having the same argument I’ve been having year-on-year since Virgil van Dijk was inexplicably allowed to leave Celtic for a fee of £13million in the summer of 2015.
“Nothing has changed. English clubs believed then they could get away with transfer market murder and they still do.
“Fair enough all clubs start low in a bidding process but £15m for Tierney smacks of disgusting contempt. Not just for Celtic and Scottish football but for the boy.
“If I were Tierney I would be wondering if they really rated me at all given the figures which are flying around south of the border
“Manchester United are paying £55m to land Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace. Leicester are looking to get about £70m for Ben Chilwell if he goes.
“Both of those boys have had roughly one good season each in the English Premier League and that’s the fees?”
