Arsenal to sell Kieran Tierney to Premier League side?

Kieran Tierney news

Tierney heading for Gunners exit?

Arsenal could reportedly be open to the departure of Kieran Tierney amid the speculated interest from Premier League side Leicester City.

The Scotland international has managed limited gametime in his debut season with the Gunners owing to a couple of injury setbacks.

According to 90min, the Foxes are looking at the possibility of replacing Ben Chilwell, who is attracting strong interest from Frank Lampard's Chelsea.

The same publication claims that they could swoop for the services of Tierney, who could be permitted to leave the Gunners after a solitary campaign.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is expected to making a number of changes to the squad in the summer and it is suggested that the club would be open to selling Tierney, provided they can recoup the £25m fee paid to Celtic last summer.

Tierney experienced his best spell under Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers at Celtic and a reunion could be on the cards during next summer's transfer window.

The left-back has started light training following his surgery for a dislocated shoulder and he could make his comeback to the playing field by the beginning of March.

Still, a starting spot may be far from guaranteed with Bukayo Saka and Sead Kolasinac currently ahead of him in the selection order under manager Mikel Arteta.
