While it was widely speculated that Celtic would be keen on bringing Tierney back, it appears the interest is coming from La Liga’s Real Sociedad.
The Spanish club has been closely monitoring the Scottish defender, and Arsenal have indeed received an enquiry for a season-long loan.
- Real Sociedad has shown interest in singing Kieran Tierney from Arsenal on a season-long loan, with no official offer from Celtic despite rumours
- Arsenal have welcomed Jurrien Timber from Ajax in a £34 million deal, adding more competition to Tierney’s position at the club.
- The potential move to Sociedad could see Tierney team up with former Rangers striker Umar Sadiq, in what promises to be an exciting season for the Spanish club.
Real Sociedad’s unexpected interest in Tierney
This comes despite widespread speculation that Celtic would make a move to bring back their former star.
Arsenal’s defensive shuffle
The Gunners’ recent Community Shield victory over Man City featured Tierney coming off the bench, a role he might find himself in more often this season.
Tierney’s potential move and its implications
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has assured Tierney that he does have a future in North London.
However, Newcastle and Aston Villa have been previously linked with the Scottish defender, and the entry of Real Sociedad adds a new dimension to the story.
Real Sociedad, who finished fourth in La Liga last season, is looking to strengthen their squad ahead of their Champions League appearance.
The potential move would also see Tierney link up with Umar Sadiq, a former Rangers flop who found success elsewhere and recently made a £17 million move to Sociedad.
