Celtic sensation Kieran Tierney is being closely monitored by Premier League giants Arsenal, according to a report.
The Telegraph claim that Arsene Wenger wants to stay at the north London club and is planning an overhaul of his failing squad.
Wenger, who is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates, has come under increasing pressure this season with his club currently sitting outside of the top four.
They were heavily beaten in the Champions League after German champions Bayern Munich knocked them out of the competition by winning the two legs 10-2 on aggregate.
It is said that the future of the club’s two full-backs, Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs are in doubt with Tierney among those being regularly watched.
The 19-year-old left-back is currently on the verge of helping Brendan Rodgers side secure the Scottish Premiership title in record fashion.
He has played 31 games in all competitions for the Bhoys this season, including 17 SPL matches where he has assisted eight goals.
Football Insider verdict:
It would be a big mistake for Tierney to move to England and Arsenal if an approach is made by the north London club. At this moment in time, he is playing regularly for his club, playing Champions League football and is a regular member in the Scotland side. From an individual stand point, this is helping the teenager progress and become a better player, both defensively and offensively. At Arsenal, amongst all the chaos, he is not guaranteed to start matches which could prevent the youngster from progressing to the next level. He still has a long way to go and should stick to helping the Hoops win titles and cups.
