According to a recent report by the Scotsman, Tottenham Hotspur are considering making a move for Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney during this ongoing summer transfer window. The same source has mentioned that Spurs are ready to beat Arsenal in the race to sign the Scottish defensive ace in this off-season.

Tierney’s Remarkable Rise In Scottish Football

Tierney graduated from Celtic’s Academy before making a positive impact in their first-team back in 2015. He has gradually improved his game with each season and is currently one of the best full-backs in the Scottish top-flight.

The Douglas-born talent has enjoyed a fruitful spell at Celtic Park over the past couple of seasons. He put in some eye-catching displays for the Glaswegian giants last season despite struggling to cope with injuries.

It would be an excellent signing for Spurs if they can find a way to bring the Scottish left-back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the start of the new campaign. The 22-year-old is about to embark upon the prime years of his playing career which Mauricio Pochettino’s side could look to benefit from over the next few seasons. 

Tierney found the back of the net once and created six assists in 40 matches for Celtic on all fronts last season. He has also represented the Scottish national side in 12 international games but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation so far.

What Will The Scottish Full-Back Add To Pochettino’s Side?

The Scottish defensive ace has blistering pace and can put in a tireless shift down the left flank. He can whip in some dangerous crosses from the wide areas and is also a reliable defender at the back for his team. Tierney has won a whole host of trophies for the Scottish heavyweights over the past few years. Thus, he will bring a winning mentality to the North London club if Pochettino can find a way to lure him to England this summer.

Acquiring Tierney: Wise Move For Pochettino?

The addition of an accomplished left-back like Tierney will undoubtedly boost the overall quality of Pochettino’s squad. He will be an ideal replacement for Danny Rose if the English full-back ends up leaving North London this summer. Thus, it would be a clever move by Spurs to recruit him ahead of the new season.
