Unai Emery has identified the left-back as the perfect option to take over from Nacho Monreal. However, the emergence of Napoli’s interest in the Scotland international has prompted a response from the Premier League giants, who were preparing a £19m offer, but the Gunners believe £22m is the figure Celtic will accept.
Serie A giants interest has forced Unai Emery to accelerate talks, but the London club will be boosted by Celtic’s latest signing.
Belgian ace Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo has arrived from Rapid Vienna as Kieran Tierney’s potential replacement and the English side have convinced Nacho Monreal to cancel his deal with the club.
Kieran Tierney is understood to be keen on joining the Emirates club and could be Celtic’s record sale if he leaves for more than £19.7 million.
