Arsenal are expected to make a new offer for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney over the coming days, according to Sky sources.

The Gunners’ initial £15m bid for Tierney was rejected in June.

A second £25m offer was also turned down due to the deal containing too many add-ons and the dependency of Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League.

The 22-year-old, who has won five Scottish Premiership titles, made 40 appearances in all competitions for the Hoops during the 2018/19 campaign.

If Arsenal are able to secure the services of Tierney he would be Unai Emery’s fifth signing of the summer window.
