Arsenal are reportedly ready to make an offer for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney as they look to strengthen their backline this summer.

Arsenal are reportedly ready to make an official approach for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney.

As a result of their failure to qualify for next season's Champions League, the Gunners will be restricted in the transfer market this summer, which leaves Unai Emery potentially in a position where he may have to look for value for money.

However, the Daily Mail suggests that Emery remains keen on trying to push through a big-money deal for highly-regarded Tierney in the coming weeks.

The boyhood Celtic fan remains committed to the top-flight champions, although there will always be interest in the 22-year-old's signature until he leaves the Glasgow giants.

Arsenal would potentially have to use at least half of their alleged £45m budget in order to secure the services of the Scotland international, who still has four years left on his contract.

Tierney - a player capable of playing in both full-back positions - has made 170 appearances for Celtic in all competitions.
