Kieran Tierney has been asked to follow Andrew Robertson’s journey and join Arsenal by former Scotland International, Charlie Adam.

It is becoming quite clear that by the end of the season, Kieran Tierney is not going to stay at Celtic. Following some really impressive displays for the Scottish giants, the young full back has alerted several European clubs.

Arsenal remain keen on Kieran Tierney who could be a great replacement for the ageing Nacho Monreal. And reportedly, the Gunners have had two bids turned down. Regardless, Unai Emery is keen on signing the left back who is going to develop into quite a handful talent for years to come.

And Charlie Adam, who represented Scotland and played for Liverpool in the past, believes that Kieran Tierney should join the Gunners. The former Stoke man says that the youngster should follow the career of Andrew Robertson. The young full back joined Liverpool from Hull City in 2017 and has gone on to become one of the best full backs in the Premier League.

“£10m up front and they stagger the next £10m, Celtic are not going to accept that,” Adam said on BBC Radio 5 Live as reported by the Daily Star.

“[Peter Lawwell] will want £20m for Kieran Tierney.

“He’s a good player, I think it’s the next progression for his career.

“He’s been at Celtic, he’s done amazing at Celtic in winning the treble treble.

“I think it’s probably now time for him to leave Celtic.

“I know I’m going to get a bit of stick here on Twitter but I think it’s right for him, his next step.

“And also seeing how well Andrew Roberson has progressed at Liverpool, as a player you’ve got to be thinking ‘I want some of that’.

“It’s going to be difficult for him to leave because he is a big Celtic fan.

“But if Arsenal do want him they will have to pay serious money for him.”
