Arsenal are back in talks with Celtic over a deal for Kieran Tierney.
The Gunners have had two bids rejected for the 22-year-old full-back, with the latest potentially worth up to £25million.
The Gunners are understood to have met Celtic’s asking price of £25million but the Hoops want the money up front, as opposed to the staggered payments initially offered.
Arsenal cooled their interest but after sealing the signings of Dani Ceballos, on loan from Real Madrid, and William Saliba from Saint Etienne for £27million, they have now made a new move to secure Tierney’s signature.
Gunners chiefs are believed to be confident of finalising an agreement with Celtic, with talkSPORT told on Thursday that ‘it looks like Tierney will be on his way to the Emirates’.
