Kieran Tierney learns Arsenal transfer fate as Celtic hero joins big hitters on sale list

Kieran Tierney has been told that Arsenal are willing to listen to transfer offers for his services this summer.

The left-back was frozen out at the Emirates last season before being allowed to leave the club on loan to Real Sociedad in La Liga where he enjoyed his time. The 26-year-old managed 26 appearances in that time but penned an emotional exit message to supporters in Spain as he appeared to confirm he would not be making any move permanent.

Now, though, reports in The Standard claim that KT will join three other Gunners stars on the sale list for boss Mikel Arteta including the likes of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith-Rowe.

Tierney is currently away with Scotland as they continue their Euro 2024 preparations and a strong showing at the tournament will only strengthen Arsenal's position with the full-back.

Tierney was dropped from their squad with the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Jakub Kiwior being picked ahead of him.

Newcastle and Aston Villa have both been credited with interest in the Scot in recent seasons while Real Madrid and Barcelona were even touted in what would be a sensational story for the ex-Celtic star.

The Hoops were linked with a shock loan effort which never materialised.
