Arsenal target Kieran Tierney told to join Gunners because of Liverpool star

That is according to former Scotland international Charlie Adam, who believes Tierney should leave Celtic for the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is eager to add the 22-year-old left-back to his squad ahead of the new season.

The Gunners have seen two offers worth £15m and £18m respectively knocked back by Tierney.

Scottish pal Robertson has thrived at Liverpool following an £8m move from Hull City in 2017.

He has firmly established himself as one of the world’s leading left-backs after playing a major role in the Reds’ Champions League win.

And former Liverpool midfielder Adam believes Tierney should be inspired by Robertson’s progression at Anfield.

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

“[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.”

Arsenal have yet to make a signing in the summer transfer window.
