Some Arsenal fans have been celebrating after reports emerged claiming that the club intend to extend Kieran Tierney’s contract.
According to The Athletic, the Scotsman, who has been labelled as ‘one of the best in the world’ by Paul Slane, could be set to be offeredfor a new contract with his current deal due to expire in 2024. The report also claims Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar view the left-back as one of the key players of the future
Having joined the north London giants in the summer of 2019, but, has endured injury-hell during his time with the outfit. In under two seasons with the team, the Scotland international has suffered five separate injury problems.
However, despite all his issues, he has still turned out to be one of the club’s key players due to his attacking threat down the left-hand side.
With Arsenal due to be undergoing an overhaul of the squad, the 23-year-old is one of the few players who should be kept at the club.
His performances and show of leadership on and off the pitch make him a valuable asset to the Gunners as they look to rebuild after a disastrous campaign.
Here are how some fans reacted to the news…
