Arsenal Try Again For Kieran Tierney, Bid In To Celtic

Lennon reveals reason for Tierney's pre-season absence

Lennon reveals reason for Tierney's pre-season absence

But Unai Emery is keen to secure the services of the Scotland worldwide with a new left-back one of his top priorities.

James is one of the first names in the team sheet for Lennon and with comments like this we don't see that changing any time soon.

"He is rehabbing. He had the double hernia, and he still has the osteitis pubis problem, so it's a slow burner".

But Lennon is hoping he is still a Celtic player, and a fully fit one, when the league season kicks off.

Arsenal have returned with a second bid for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney that could be worth up to £25 million to the Scottish side.

If the deal goes through, Tierney, 22, would become the most expensive player in Scottish football history.

A £25m move would top the £19.7m Celtic received when Moussa Dembele joined Lyon in summer 2018.

It has been widely reported that Arsenal only have a transfer budget of around £45m this summer after their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Napoli looked set to battle Arsenal for Tierney and Celtic would surely welcome the chance of a bidding war between the two clubs. However, Neil Lennon has been gushing in his praise for the Celtic youth product and believes he should be rewarded with a new long term deal.
