Arsenal backed to complete key summer signing despite Man Utd transfer claim

That is the opinion of former Rangers and Scotland striker Kris Boyd.

Arsenal have already had multiple offers for Tierney turned down by Celtic.

A £15m bid was rejected earlier this month which led to the Gunners returning with a £25m offer over the weekend.

However, Celtic were said to be unhappy with the structure of payment Arsenal were proposing, with only £18m being paid up front.

“When the numbers are getting to the stage that they’re getting to, I know that Celtic will look at the English market and say ‘the players are going for…’, well I think they already said ‘Wan-Bissaka for £50m’,” Boyd told Sky Sports News.

“But we all know the English market is inflated right now.

“Whether it continues is a different story.

“When you see Kieran Tierney there is no doubt there is a talented footballer there.

“But I can’t see Celtic getting getting that type of money for him.

“I think if you’re getting towards the £20m-25m, then you’ve got to sell him.

“I think Celtic can be proud of what they’ve done, given him the opportunity to play at that level.”
