Arsenal fans would have been delighted with the news that Scottish champions Celtic are targeting a left-back replacement for top Gunners target Kieran Tierney.

This is according to The Sun which claimed that Celtic are eyeing a free transfer move for Iranian international Milad Mohammadi as the search for the man to replace Arsenal target Tierney continues.

It was revealed that left-back Milad Mohammadi is available on a free transfer after he rejected the offer of a new contract from his Russian club Akhmat Grozny.

Celtic are resigned to losing Kieran Tierney to Premier League giants Arsenal despite the fact that they have already turned down two bids for him from the Gunners.

The Scottish champions initially rejected an opening Arsenal bid of £15m for the 22-year-old left-back before the Gunners returned with an improved bid believed to be around £20m.

The second bid of £20m was also turned down by Celtic with reports claiming that they are holding out for a bid of £25m and it remains to be seen whether the Gunners would be willing to go further than their latest bid as they try to bolster their defense ahead of the new season billed for the second week in August.
