Kieran Tierney Celtic transfer windfall wheels in motion as Arsenal star named on Manchester City ‘shortlist’

Celtic could be in line for a bumper pay day after Kieran Tierney was reportedly included in a shortlist of Manchester City targets.

The 25-year-old has impressed at Arsenal since a £25m transfer from Parkhead back in 2019, making a seamless transition from the Scottish Premiership to the English Premier League.

Despite his season being brought to an end early through injury, his form appears to have put the Scotland cap on the radar of one of English champions Manchester City.

The Scotsman claim that Tierney has been included on Pep Guardiola’s wishlist as he looks to add a new left-back this summer.

The mega-rich City would have to spend big to take the full-back from the Emirates, with £50m expected to be the asking price.

That could be good news for Celtic, who hold a 15 per cent sell-on fee in the player.

That would net his former club a fee of around £7.5m as they prepare for their return to the Champions League.

Ange Postecoglou will also be hoping to see the Premiership champions budget boosted by Moussa Dembele, with the Parkhead side holding a similar clause in the Lyon striker’s contract.
