Leicester City keen to land Arsenal left-back

Kieran Tierney is a target for Leicester City in the summer transfer window.

The Scotland international only joined Arsenal from Celtic in 2019 for 27 million euros and his contract runs to June 2024.

This season, Tierney has provided two assists in 12 appearances for Arsenal.

The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Scotland.

Kieran Tierney has represented Scotland at Under-18 and Under-19 level, winning five caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in March 2016. As a member of Scotland national football team, Tierney won 12 caps.

Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a new left-back and Kieran Tierney is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Leicester City are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

Kieran Tierney would provide a good variety to Leicester City’s defense.

According to the report, “Leicester City are looking at Arsenal star Kieran Tierney if they lose Ben Chilwell. The interest from top clubs in Chilwell is well reported, with Manchester City the most frequently linked in the British and European press. 90min suggests that Brendan Rodgers is targeting his former Celtic player Tireney if Chilwell leaves. The 22-year-old only joined Arsenal in the summer, but has spent most of the campaign on the treatment table. If they were to fail to qualify for the Champions League and Leicester made a big offer, Tierney could welcome the chance to jump ship. And Arsenal could be willing to sell if they get their money back.”
