Arteta  Arsenal

Arsenal ready to sell an important player

Arsenal are ready to sell Kieran Tierney after they spent £25m on him last summer and he made only 11 appearances for the club.

The Gunners are said to be willing to sell the Scotland international to Leicester City in order to fund their transfer budget for this summer.

According to the transfer expert Duncan Castles, Arsenal are going to sell the player to fund Mikel Arteta's new signings.

Kieran Tierney played in only 11 games for the Gunners as he suffered a hip injury at first and then he got a shoulder injury that sidelined him for a long time.

However, Mikel Arteta believes that Tierney is capable of “bring something special” to Arsenal in the years that are yet to come.

However, Arsenal definitely need some reinforcement in their squad in order to be a part of the top four in the Premier League table.

Arteta needs to make some changes in defence and in the midfield area, but in order to that to happen he needs a serious investment in transfers.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic Arsenal's new boss might see his transfer budget significantly restricted.

It was reported that Leicester City have shown interest in the 23-year-old Scotland international.

Brendan Rodgers is willing to make a reunion with the 23-year-old Tierney as he managed him when he was Celtic head coach.

Rodgers is understood to be willing to let Ben Chilwell leave the Foxes to join Chelsea, but of course at the right price.

"There is a fit there [for Chilwell at Chelsea]," Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

"I think it's important that Brendan Rodgers, when he was entering Leicester City and looking at last summer's transfer market, Chilwell was a player he was prepared to let go.

"He felt he could secure a substantial transfer fee for him and if he did the player he had in mind to purchase was Kieran Tierney."
