Arsenal have identified Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney as their top transfer target this summer if reports are to be believed.

The Scotland international has been linked before with a move to the Premier League, but despite alleged interest from Liverpool and Manchester United as well as the Gunners he has remained at Parkhead.

Arsenal will have to pay around £20 million for the 22-year-old who is under contract at the Scottish treble-winners until 2023.

Meanwhile, the Gunners look set to make an offer to St Etienne for defender William Saliba. Yahoo Sports in France claims they will put in a bid by the end of this week.

Reports last week claimed that St Etienne are open to a deal for the 18-year-old. However, their valuation stands at €30 million (around £27 million). Arsenal’s entire transfer budget for this summer stands at £40-45 million with player sales to be added onto that.

Expect a bid to be well below St Etienne’s valuation and for it to be immediately rejected by the French club.
