Arsenal has been trying to sign Celtic defender Kieran Tierney all summer and according to some reports have already had two bids rejected.
However, a third bid was always expected and it is being reported that the said third bid will be tabled “imminently”
Respected journalist Charlie Watts who reports mainly on Arsenal is the person claiming that a bid is imminent and as regular readers know on JustArsenal, I have a lot of time for Mr Watts and find him very credible.
It was always expected that Arsenal would make a third go at trying to sign the Scottish international but it is always a relief to hear from credible sources that is in fact what is about to happen.
There are some concerns over the fitness levels of the 22-year-old and how long he may be sidelined with his current injury but it is not thought that any of that is a deal-breaker.
Celtic have been holding out for £25 Million and Arsenal have offered that but in instalments and with add ons which the Hoops are not interested in.
It is difficult to see Arsenal playing any more games this close to the deadline and I would expect them to make an offer that the Scottish Champions are likely to accept.
The bottom line for me is I expect this one to be done before the window shuts.
