Tierney has told the Scottish champions of his desire to to play in the Premier League and would be welcome reinforcement to a questionable Arsenal backline.

Celtic are reportedly convinced with the new offer, and willing to complete the formalities to propel Arsenal to complete another stellar signing this summer.

As of now, the official announcements by both the clubs, confirming the news are still awaited.
