Former Celtic and Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas feels that while the Premier League will be difficult for Kieran Tierney, his addition will be an improvement on what Arsenal have.
Nicholas feels that Tierney leaving for Arsenal will be a huge loss for Celtic, but has spoken highly of the defender and believes that he’ll be a welcome addition to Unai Emery’s squad, although he has warned that he’ll have to improve further to be a success in the Premier League.
As quoted by the Express, Nicholas told the Transfer Talk podcast on Sky Sports: “Well he’d be a big loss [for Celtic].
“Tierney has vastly improved at Celtic, become a real top, top defender in terms of the domestic setup in Scotland. But in England it’s so much harder, it’s very, very tough. If he does come then Arsenal will get an improvement on what they already have by a fair distance in my opinion.”
