Celtic reject improved £25 million Arsenal bid for Kieran Tierney

Neil Lennon believes tomorrow’s friendly is important

"But we don't want them in the Premier League, we want them here with us playing in the Champions League".

The Scot has been one of Arsenal's primary transfer targets this summer, with the Gunners seeing an initial £15m bid knocked back by Celtic.

NEIL LENNON says that Celtic won't be drawn into an arms race with Rangers, with his focus entirely on improving his own squad rather than worrying about what is going on at Ibrox.

The likes of Laurent Koscielny, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson are all thought to be nearing the exit door at the Emirates Stadium, which would certainly raise funds to finance a deal for Tierney.

No time frame has been placed on a return of the left-back, but the bigger question now is whether he will still be at Celtic when he is ready to play again.

In early July, the 21-year-old Crystal Palace right-back Wan-Bissaka was sold to Manchester United for £50m, and Lennon feels that Arsenal's most recent bid for Tierney - believed to be in the region of £25m - will not force Celtic into a deal.

"He's got a long-term contract and we don't want him to go".

"The club's valuation of Kieran has not been met and until then we don't have a discussion".

Arsenal are looking to sign a left-back to bolster their defence after the Gunners conceded 53 times in 38 games last term. "I don't know what Arsenal's financial state is".

This tells me that we can be fairly certain that Arsenal has done what a lot of people have been urging them to do, put in a bid that the Hoops will agree to.

'There has been a second bid, the bid has been rejected and it's as you were'.

Arsenal had a bid of £15 million refused several weeks ago but with other clubs having an interest in Tierney, namely Serie A side Napoli, Unai Emery has made his move.
