Arsenal and Leicester eye Celtic left-back Tierney

Arsenal have joined Leicester City in the race for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

Unai Emery is believed to be interested in strengthening his defensive options this summer, and has targeted left-back as an area for improvement.

The Spaniard has identified Celtic full-back Tierney as a potential target, with the Gunners set to make a move for the 21-year-old in the summer window.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal’s interest will come as a blow to Leicester, who were keeping tabs on Tierney as a potential replacement for England international Ben Chilwell.

Leicester are preparing themselves for summer interest in Chilwell, with the 22-year-old having been linked with a move to Manchester City with Pep Guardiola concerned by Benjamin Mendy’s prolonged injury problems.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers had hoped to be reunited with Scotland international Tierney at the King Power Stadium, having managed the player during his time in charge at Celtic Park.
