Arsenal agreement for Celtic's Kieran Tierney is close, transfer timetable revealed

Arsenal still confident they will sign Kieran Tierney – but Celtic think differently

However, Celtic, who value the player at £25m, considered the add-on clauses in the second bid unrealistic and have rejected all offers put forward by Arsenal so far.

That's according to Ian McGarry, who thinks the Gunners are less likely to persuade Celtic into selling Kieran Tierney due to their mega-money bid for Pepe.

Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal with Celtic for Kieran Tierney, according to reports. But Celtic won't short-change themselves and are playing hardball over the size of the fee. GossipFEELING GUEN-EROUS Arsenal to boost Guendozi's £40k-a-week wages after ditching big earners MAN YOUTH-NITED Utd's academy grads played most last term so should Ole take punt on youth? Celtic were apparently left unsatisfied with the package Arsenal were offering.

One of those add-ons was based on the Gunners qualifying for the Champions League, something Neil Lennon wasn't confident they could achieve as the Hoops turned down the approach.

Tierney appears to be the smarter option.

The case has been an embarrassment for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party, which is in power in the state and nationally. Ram Singh, CBI's Additional Superintendent of Police in Lucknow , has been asked to carry out the investigation.

Saint-Etienne centre-back William Saliba has also signed, though the young defender will be loaned back to the French club for the coming season.

This major breakthrough for Arsenal comes after they reportedly sealed the deal for Lille's Nicolas Pepe, with the Ivory Coast player to be announced as a Gunner soon.

The saga of the summer has been Arsenal's pitiful pursuit of Kieran Tierney with the London club penny pinching to try and get a deal over the line.

Tierney has been backed to succeed at the Emirates as the left-back will come in to face competition. Monreal is expected to play a role in central defence as the future of Laurent Koscielny remains uncertain. Fees are to made upfront and this looks to have been decisive.

But efforts to sign Tierney from Celtic have continued to fall short, with Arsenal thought to have seen three offers to bring in the Scotland star fall short, with Celtic determined to hold on to their star - or at the least, not sell him for less than their valuation.
