North London giants Arsenal have been told that they must break the Celtic transfer record in their bid to sign left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners have had two bids turned down for the Celtic left-back.

According to the publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard, Arsenal must break the Celtic transfer window set at the £19m received by the Scottish champions for the transfer of French striker Moussa Dembele to Lyon during last summer’s transfer window.

Arsenal opened talks with a first bid of £15m which was swiftly rejected by the Scottish champions before they returned with the latest and second bid of £18m which met with the same response as the first.

Celtic are holding out for at least £25m for Kieran Tierney.

Scottish national team player Tierney can play either as a left-back or as a centre back and he has told Celtic that he wants to listen to the offer from Arsenal.

The Gunners are expected to offer him a long-term contract worth £70,000 on a weekly basis.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has identified the left-back position as an area to be strengthened this summer as he prepares for his second season as the manager at the North London club.
