Pat Nevin has told The Sunday Post that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City should sign £25 Arsenal star Kieran Tierney in the summer transfer window.
Tierney joined the Gunners back in the summer of 2019 – signing for a reported £25million from Celtic – and has been a fan favourite at the Emirates ever since and possibly the next Arsenal captain after the contract of Alexander Lacazette expires in the summer.
City have never really had a consistent left-back throughout Pep Guardiola’s five-and-a-half-year tenure at City with Cancelo, primarily signed as a right-back, has been asked to fill in.
Nevin told The Sunday Post about Tierney: “I think Manchester City would be the perfect club for him. They have a brilliant squad, but are a bit short in two positions – left-back and centre-forward. They spent £100m to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, so would easily be able to meet Arsenal’s price.”
“If they finally win the Champions League this season, then how do you strengthen the best team in Europe? Signing Kieran would be a good start.
“I tried to get Chelsea to buy him four years ago, but they didn’t listen and ended up signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City – for twice as much as Kieran would have cost them. He just 24 and hasn’t peaked yet, which is quite frightening.”
