Arsenal have made Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney a top summer transfer target, according to reports. 

The 22-year-old has helped the Hoops win a historic domestic treble treble over the past three campaigns.

But the Daily Mail report that the Scottish champions face a fight to keep their full-back with Arsenal keen to bring him to the Premier League.

Gunners boss Unai Emery wants backline reinforcements after poor defensive displays cost the North Londoners a place in next season’s Champions League.

And with Nacho Monreal now 33, the Spaniard has made the Scotland international his number 1 left-back target.

The defender;s current contract doesn’t expire until 2023 meaning it’s thought the Bhoys won’t consider an offer unless it’s at least in the region of £20million.

However, despite being on a lower budget than any of the other ‘big-six’, Emery feels it would be a good investment considering the Celtic man’s age and talent.

Tierney has played 167 senior club matches and made his competitive debut back in 2015 at the age of 17.
