North London outfit Arsenal are reported to be facing major competition for the signature of Kieran Tierney in this summer transfer window.

It is claimed that Italian Serie A giants Napoli are also desperate to land the player who is opened to a move this term.

It has been reported by SunSport that the Serie A giants have already made inquiries about the availability of the £25million-rated Celtic left-back despite being aware of the interest from Arsenal.

The report adds that Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is a big fan of the highly rated left-full back and will seek to work with him in the coming season.

Kieran Tierney has won eight major honors, including two Trebles, and has made over 150 club appearances, which adds to his quality in the Champions League and Europa League while also earning 12 Scotland caps.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery will not have to depend on Nacho Monreal as a result of his age and the injuries he has been battling with which makes the need for a new player a necessary option.

Kieran Tierney is a young player who has many years to impress while he has already gained a level of experience which would be helpful to the North London outfit if he is eventually captured.
