Arsenal Preparing Second Bid For £25m-rated Star

North London giants Arsenal have concluded plans to make a second bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney as the search for a new left-back continues.

The Daily Mirror claimed that the Gunners will lodge a second bid for Tierney in the coming days.

Arsenal had earlier been turned down by Celtic in the wake of their first bid for the player.

The Gunners had earlier made an opening offer of £15m for Kieran Tierney.

Celtic rejected the bid swiftly with the Scottish champions holding out for £25m for the player.

It was revealed that the second Arsenal bid is expected to be £22m which is still £3m short of the valuation from Celtic.

Kieran Tierney came through the ranks at Celtic before making his debut for the first team.

The Scottish international player has made 170 appearances for Celtic since his debut.

Tierney is a key member of the Celtic team that won three domestic titles in the last three seasons.

The 22-year-old has 12 caps for Scotland national team and he is also a utility player as he can play as a centre back, right-back and his regular left-back position.

Apart from the Gunners, Italian Serie A club Napoli are also interested in the player.
