Tierney's agent speaks up amid exit talk

The representative of Kieran Tierney has said that Celtic will ultimately decide the future of the defender amid interest from the likes of Arsenal and Napoli.

The Scotland international has been the subject of £18m bids from both Arsenal and Napoli, but the Hoops have decided to knock back both offers.

Speaking to BBC Sport, agent Allan Preston has now revealed that the Hoops will only sell at the right price and neither Arsenal nor Napoli have met the valuation at the moment.

 "It is all down to Celtic.If they get a price that they believe is the correct value for Kieran Tierney he could possibly be on his way. No one has hit that price yet," he said.

Arsenal have made just one signing in Gabriel Martinelli from Ituano this summer but they are seemingly eager to land the signature of Tierney to bolster the left side of the defence.

Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal are presently the club's options for the department but the latter has been fancied to secure a cut-price move away from the club this summer.
