Arsenal make transfer decision on Kieran Tierney
Arsenal are prepared to part ways with Kieran Tierney if they receive a permanent bid or a loan deal with an obligation to buy.
The Scotland international is no longer an assured starter for the Gunners at left-back and he could leave the club in the next few weeks.
Oleksandr Zinchenko is currently the first-choice left-back when fit while Jurrien Timber, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jakub Kiwior can provide back-up.
With this in mind, the north London giants are open to parting ways with the 26-year-old, but they won't entertain a straight loan offer for him.
Real Sociedad are currently the only club interested in the Scot, but the La Liga giants prefer to sign him on loan with a possible buy clause.
Newcastle United and West Ham United have also been linked, and the Premier League duo could yet make an approach for his services.
Tierney was a second-half substitute in the recent Community Shield win over Manchester City. Timber was chosen to start over him.
