I am not going to complain but Tottenham is making themselves look ridiculous with their constant stalking of Arsenal’s transfer targets.
First, they tried to hijack the William Saliba deal with St Etienne and that came to absolutely nothing, then they try to derail our plans to loan Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid and of course, that has come to nothing.
Now, they are looking to try and snatch Celtic defender Kieran Tierney from under our noses, according to the latest reports.
It is rather pathetic of them, to be honest, and remember they have a history with this amateurish behaviour when they tried to stop us buying Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.
This proves my point from an earlier article about them never being as big or classy a club as Arsenal and that is why player after player is snubbing them for us even though we cannot offer Champions League football.
This crude attempt to sign Tierney shows how paranoid they are when it comes to Arsenal. Maybe it stems from the humiliation we dumped on them by signing Sol Campbell, I don’t know, but I do not take them seriously anymore when it comes to them trying to snatch one of our targets.
In fact, to be brutally honest, I 100% expected them to come after Tierney, I can read them like a children’s book now.
Bottom line is this, they will not be signing Kieran Tierney whether we do or not.
