The Gunners were supposed to have offered £ 15 million to Celtic. But, the Scottish club immediately rejected it as the price was very low. Celtic is reportedly asking for £ 25 million for Tierney.
“Everything (Tierney’s transfer) depends on Celtic – if they can accept an offer at the desired price for Kieran Tierney, then he could leave. There isn’t a single club that can afford the price,” said Preston, quoted from Mirror.
