Arsenal confident of agreeing another transfer deal after Nicolas Pepe

Arsenal are reportedly confident of landing the services of defender Kieran Tierney from Celtic despite failing with a couple of transfer bids already this summer.

The Gunners initially made a £15m offer for the Scotland international but a rejection saw them come up with a renewed £25m package which was likewise rebuffed by the Scottish champions.

Despite this, the north London giants have not given up on the recruitment of the Scotland international and Sky Sports News claims that they are confident of striking an agreement before the transfer deadline.

The same publication claims that the Gunners’ second offer included plenty of add-ons which did not suit the Hoops, and they are due to come up with a better structured package to convince the club into a sale.

At present, Arsenal have a couple of left-backs in the form of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac in the ranks, but the latter is mostly regarded as a central defender in the plans of Unai Emery.

Elsewhere, Kolasinac has impressive with his attacking mindset but he has struggled on the opposite end where he has generally left spaces for the opposition to pounce upon.

In terms of this, Tierney provides a balanced option on both ends of the field and he has particularly impressed with his crossing which has proved a weak point for Kolasinac during his time at the Emirates.
