Arsenal have offered Celtic defender Kieran Tierney a contract worth £70,000 per week, according to a report by the Sun.
They report that the 22-year-old has been made a proposition that dwarfs his current Parkhead wages and would see him rake in around £4 million a year at the Emirates Stadium.
The report says that Tierney is one of Celtic’s top earners and while he would not be in the top bracket at Arsenal, he would earn the same as established international stars Lucas Torreira and Shkodran Mustafi.
But despite that, Tierney is apparently in no hurry to leave his boyhood club in order to chase the fame and riches on offer down south.
It’s no surprise that a club who have been pumped full of Premier League cash can afford to make Tierney such a lucrative offer.
In truth, if Tierney was keen to agitate for a move, it would make Celtic’s life so much harder, but his stance is allowing his boyhood club to get a fair deal for him, if he does move at all.
It’s admirable that Tierney is showing loyalty to the club that made him as well as being the one he loves but Bhoys fans would expect nothing less of a player who has worn his heart on his sleeve since his debut.
