EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal & Celtic Agree Fee And Structure Of Payment For Transfer Of Kieran Tierney

Despite all the confusion and conundrum, Arsenal have finally agreed on terms with Celtic over the transfer of Kieran Tierney, The 4th Official understands. The main sticking point was the structure of the payment, which was also resolved by the two clubs yesterday. 

The Scotland international made his strides at Parkhead under Brendan Rodgers and earned the attention of several European heavyweights in the recent past.

A previous bid of £25m was rejected by the Scottish champions (as confirmed by Sky Sports) a couple of weeks ago. They were not convinced over the structure of the deal and demanded more payment upfront rather than in add-ons. The Gunners have now revised their offer, and a medical is lined up this weekend as per our understanding.

The 22-year-old left-back is currently working on his fitness after missing out months of football last season due to the double-hernia and pubis problem. Celtic have already roped in Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo as his potential replacement and Tierney, who has made 170 senior appearances for the Bhoys, is set to be Arsenal’s fourth summer signing behind Gabriel Martinelli, Dani Ceballos and William Saliba.
