Tottenham could make a cut-price move for Celtic’s young star Kieran Tierney following the Scottish Champions’ shock exit from the Champions League.
This is according to the Express, who state that Celtic are going to need to find a way to make up for the the amount of money they’re set to miss out on for failing to qualify for the Champions League proper.
One of the ways the Hoops could go about this is by selling players.
The Express have also reported that Tottenham may be willing to test Celtic’s resolve with £10m bid for the 21-year-old left-back.
Tierney has been at the heart of Celtic’s defence since his breakthrough at the end of the 2014/15 season, when Celtic were managed by Ronny Deila.
The Scot has gone on to make 83 appearances in the Scottish Premiership for the Hoops, scoring 5 goals.
Tierney has also tested himself against some of Europe’s most exciting wingers whilst representing Celtic in the Champions League in recent years, with his impressive performances also leading to the defender bagging 9 caps for Scotland.
The potential signing of Tierney would definitely excite Spurs fans, as the club made headlines for all the wrong reasons this summer as they became the first side to not sign any players in the summer transfer window since it’s introduction in 2003.
Despite Tottenham’s lack of summer signings, the team have had a great start to the campaign winning both of their opening Premier League fixtures, as Mauricio Pochettino’s side look to mount a serious challenge for the title this season.
