Leicester City looking to reunite Brendan Rodgers with Arsenal star

Arsenal could be set to cash in on Kieran Tierney just one season after he joined them from Celtic.

The Scotsman has struggled with injuries this season and he is yet to be a strong member of Mikel Arteta’s first team.

He is set to start first-team training later this month and Arteta will use the last few months of the season to have a look at him.

Star Sports claims that he may be departing the Emirates at the end of this season.

They claim that Brendan Rodgers wants to make Tierney the replacement for Ben Chilwell should Leicester City sell him.

Chilwell is attracting the attention of the Premier League’s best sides with Chelsea and Manchester City keen.

Pep Guardiola is looking to get cover for the injury-prone Benjamin Mendy in the next transfer window, while Frank Lampard also considers the left-back spot a problem spot in his team.

Both managers think highly of Chilwell and Leicester City are always willing to sell their players for the right price.

Tierney spent two and half years with Brendan Rodgers at Celtic and both of them won a number of trophies together.

Leicester City is flying high under the former Liverpool boss and they look close to clinching a Champions League spot.

On the face of it, this is an outlandish rumour, however, it has to be noted that Tierney was not an Arteta signing.

But I would be very surprised if this came to pass, it simply makes very little sense.

    Dont know where the story started but we are not selling Tierney to Leicester for the same money we bought him for (thats what i read) so the validity of it is very very suspect indeed.

    This is the one player that will make Arsenal tick once Mikel brings in other signings, brilliant exciting player with so much potential, absolute sheer madness if we sold him, will be the best left back in the league, I’m sure Mikel is thinking the same.One of the most hilarious rumours this year!.

    If ever Arsenal can agree with this transfer, then I will be convinced that we lack ambitions. Tierney is a very good player. He can tackle, he is fast, he can cross and can score goals. He has played every seasons in the championships league with Celtics and against good European teams. He is miles away better than Kolasinac.

    Sports journalism is so lazy these days. “Ex player used to play for ex manager lets make up a story about a reunion”

    We bought Tierney for £25mil and have paid a years worth of wages to him whilst getting only getting a handful of games from him. We’ve also put a ton of time and effort into his recuperation from two surgeries – In what world do we sell him for what we paid NETing us a loss of a few million quid?

    Bore off man 😴

      This is directed at the source of the rumor (Sunday Star according to Sky Sports Papertalk) and not at Admin Martin for reporting on it btw.

    Here we go again “he is not a arteta buy”few days ago it was saliba now Tierney,so if we follow your reasoning apart from 2 players the rest are for sale since MA didn’t buy them??

    1. Admin Martin says:

      Nope not at all but there are situations with all new managers that simply do not fancy certain players, thats a fact whether you like it or not.
