Over the last 24 hours speculation has picked up that Arsenal are determined to sign Celtic defender Kieran Tierney and the rumours have taken a positive turn where the Gunners are concerned.
Yesterday we reported that Arsenal was prepared to offer one of four players to the hoops to sweeten any deal, however, the list of names included three youngsters in addition to Carl Jenkinson and it was the inclusion of the three players that was a little concerning.
Wind the clock forward and it is now being reported that Arsenal will offer just Carl Jenkinson and cash in a bid to persuade Celtic to sell.
That is far better, as we explained yesterday it would have been a mistake to include our own young stars in any potential deal but offering just Jenkinson makes far more sense for both clubs.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon is said to be an admirer of the Arsenal outcast and hopes of a deal being achieved have risen.
It would suit Jenkinson because there would be far more opportunities for first team football, it suits Celtic because they get an experienced player as well as cash and it suits us because we land one of the best players in Scottish football.
Obviously, this could all change but as things right now what Arsenal are reported to be ready to offer looks like it could be too good for Celtic to reject.
