27-year-old Arsenal defender would love to return to former club with departure pending

Posted by

Kieran Tierney is expected to leave Arsenal this summer and the left-back would love to return to Celtic during the upcoming transfer window. 

The Scottish star made the switch from the Scottish champions to North London back in 2019 as part of a £25m deal, but things have not gone to plan for the defender at the Emirates Stadium.

Tierney has suffered a lot with injuries since leaving Glasgow and eventually found himself down Mikel Arteta’s pecking order. The 27-year-old was loaned out to Real Sociedad this season, but once again had fitness issues as he featured for the La Liga club 26 times.

The full-back has no future at Arsenal and is expected to be moved on this summer. According to Football Insider, the former Celtic star would love to return to his old club, however, a potential deal is complicated.

The report states the Scottish champions are unlikely to be able to afford a permanent transfer for Tierney, while his wages would make a loan move difficult.

Celtic return would be a good move for Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney

Given how things have gone at Arsenal over recent years, a move back to Celtic would be a good one for the Scotland international as it would a step back in order for him to move forward again.

The 27-year-old would be closer to home but will also need to get on top of his injury issues as that will continue to have a big impact on his career, no matter where he goes next.

Tierney has shown to be a good player since making his debut with Celtic in 2015 and his move to Arsenal made a lot of sense. However, the left-back seems a little lost at present and it would be great to see him secure a move back to Glasgow or a club that values his talent.
