Given the investment that the Gunners have put into Tierney, it’s likely that he will become Arsenal’s first-choice at left-back once he returns from injury – ahead of Sead Kolasinac.
Tierney has been sensational for boyhood club Celtic in recent years, but after dominating Scotland now seems like a great time for the to prove himself at a higher level.
Unai Emery will be hoping that the Scotland international can have a similar impact to countryman Andy Robertson – who has been revelation since joining Liverpool.
Tierney is a energetic full-back that should compliment Arsenal’s style of play, the ace will be expected to charge down the left-flank and drill in crosses for forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.
