Arsenal’s £25 million acquisition is poised for transfer discussions, with an anticipated result becoming clearer.

Arsenal’s £25m Signing Kieran Tierney Set for Transfer Discussions as Likely Outcome Emerges


In the latest Arsenal transfer news, it appears that Kieran Tierney’s future with the club is set for a decisive moment this summer.


Reports suggest that Kieran Tierney is expected to leave Arsenal during the upcoming transfer window. After spending last season on loan at Real Sociedad in La Liga, the Scottish left-back is gearing up for crucial talks about his long-term future with the Gunners.


During his loan spell at Real Sociedad, Tierney managed to make 26 appearances across all competitions, including the Champions League, despite facing periods of injury. Arsenal opted to loan him out due to the abundance of left-back options available to Mikel Arteta, such as Oleksandr Zinchenko, Takehiro Tomiyasu, and Jakub Kiwior, allowing Tierney to seek more regular playing time.


According to The Athletic, Arsenal will soon hold discussions with Tierney to determine his fate for the next season. The report indicates that Real Sociedad is unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for Tierney, but the left-back remains intent on securing a permanent move away from Arsenal to achieve consistent first-team football.


Tierney joined Arsenal from Celtic in 2019 for £25 million and has since made 124 appearances for the club. Earlier this month, he acknowledged the strong possibility of his departure this summer if the squad depth remains unchanged upon his return to north London.


“They have [Oleksandr] Zinchenko, [Jurrien] Timber, [Takehiro] Tomiyasu, [Jakub] Kiwior. Four players can play there. So if I go back and it’s the same as before then I’m not silly, I know the chances are I’ll be leaving.


“But you never know in football. You get the rare case with [William] Saliba, where he came back after a couple of good seasons (out on loan) but you don’t see it too often with someone who has played for four years, left, and then come back to play again.


“Stranger things have happened. I could go back and there is a place for me. So I’m prepared for both.”
