Arsenal open talks with future Arsenal captain over new deal

Arsenal are claimed to have opened talks with Kieran Tierney over a new deal.

The Scottish left-back is ready to kick-off his Euro 2020 campaign against the Czech Republic on Monday, and his club may well be looking to secure his future for the long-term at present also.

It wouldn’t be a shock if Arsenal were doing this in fear of the 24 year-old attracting major interest during the current international tournament, and it could well be a shrewd move to tie him to a new deal before the tournament was to run deep.

Tierney still has three years remaining on the five-year deal he signed on joining from Celtic in 2019, but he has earned himself a key role in North London with a number of consistent displays, and has even been described as a future captain by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta(via Football.London).

He now looks set to be rewarded with a new deal to reflect his role within the club, although the timeframe on the new contract isn’t stated in the report.

It wouldn’t be a shock to anyone in North London if Tierney was named as the club’s vice-captain, nor if he was named as Auba’s long-term successor as captain, and I would go as far as to celebrate a new deal for KT.

Could Tierney earn place in Arsenal’s all-time starting XI on day?

    No, no, no!! Let him run is contract down to the final 12 months, then try and sort his contract out, like we always used to. Man I miss AW/IG haha!

    Players/Agent are in no rush to sign new deals this days

    Look at players in Real, Barca, Bayern, City, Utd and etc…

    Everyone is in the same situation with player contracts

    the longer they delay the more money they will get from desperate clubs

    Pro active and forward planning at our club? Am I dreaming or what!

    To be fair- in contrast to so many who are not fair to MA nd who have their own bitter agenda, sometimes daily , to get him gone – I have noted that MA DOES believe in forward planning, which is one reason why I continue to support him, EVEN THOUGH I would still prefer a far bigger world class proven manager in charge.

    But I know – unlike so many self deluded fans on here- that is NOT going to happen under Kroenke. Realism!

    When you have not the ability to change the cards you are dealt, you need to play the ones you hold with the best ability you have. And this applies to fans as much as any other person in the club.

    If you are born to be 5ft 2ins but long to be 6ft 2 ins, it is pointless to spend your life in torment about what you cannot change. It is called maturity and realism!

      Word is that Manchester City are sniffing around Kieran Tierney.
      jon, I hope Arteta “plays the ones he holds to the best of his ability” to utilize the players he has at his disposal in their best positions, plays them while they are high in confidence and scoring goals, doesn’t have personal prejudices against certain players, continues to give good prospects from the Academy the opportunity to train with the first team to show their readiness to play and realizes where the squad deficiencies are, to best target the available transfer funds to address those defiencies.
