While the departure of Tierney will be a major loss for Celtic, Arsenal will sign a very promising young player if they are able to land the Scotland global left-back.

The club saw a bid for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha rejected earlier this month, whilst they are also believed to be interested in Brazil global Everton Soares and a loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

The Gunners were initially aiming to land the central defender on a £27m package but their prospects were scuppered at the final hurdle with Spurs coming up with a better proposal.

The report claims that Arsenal will be able to get Dani Ceballos on a loan deal with no option to buy as Real Madrid still have faith in the player and would like to have him back next season.

Mohamed Bouhafsi, who works for RMC Sport, confirmed that William Saliba will join Arsenal ahead of their rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The youngster will become the second 18-year-old to sign for the Gunners this summer following the arrival of Gabriel Martinelli earlier this month.

The Gunners have already had two bids rejected by Celtic for Tierney, with the latest one believed to be in the region of £25m - including add-ons.

While speaking to reporters, the 48-year-old Northern Irishman opened up on Tierney's £25 million price tag, "It's huge money, but Kieran is a huge player, It's important we have a valuation of the player, if it's not met then we don't have to sell".
