Kieran Tierney has emerged as a potential transfer option for Real Madrid.
According to Spanish outlet El Espanol, the Arsenal left-back has attracted interest from the Spanish giants.
The Spanish giants are currently top of La Liga and on the lookout for a replacement left back with Marcelo due to leave the Bernabeu at the end of the season.
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.
The 24-year-old defender has established himself as a Premier League regular and played a huge role in lifting the Emirates FA Cup in his first season with us, setting up the winning goal in the semi-final, before again starring at Wembley in the final win over Chelsea.
Kieran Tierney on Arsenal New Contract
After signing a new deal in June of last year, the Scotsman confirmed his love for the club.
“It feels amazing,” said Tierney.
“The manager came to me and said, ‘I want you to extend your deal, we’re so happy with you.’ It was amazing for me to hear because I’ve worked hard since I joined.
“I had a hard first season with injuries and Covid but last season it really picked up for me, the club have been brilliant with me, so I was more than happy to extend.
“The vision of the club and where it wants to go and the expectations of the club is where I want to be in football; at the top. There’s no doubt about it, we’re not where we want to be just now. But we’re going in the right direction.“
The way the club is run on the inside is amazing, I love all the staff, I love all the players, I love the manager and working with them is an absolute joy. Being happy in life speaks for a lot and I’m happy right now.”

Tierney is very much part of Mikel Arteta’s plans at Arsenal, and with the project now up and running, he’ll be looking to help the Gunners continue to grow in the coming years.
“KT gives us so much extra strength both defensively and offensively and it’s great to know that he’ll be with us for the long term. Since his move from Celtic, his work ethic and quality has ensured that he is already one of most exciting players in the Premier League and a hugely important part of our team, both on and off the pitch. Arteta said.
“I know all the fans will join me, the players and staff in looking forward to seeing KT playing in an Arsenal shirt for a few more years!”
However, the lure of Los Blancos could proved hard to resist, with Kylian Mbappe set to usher in a new era of Galacticos this summer.
But, if Tierney’s previous words are anything to go by, he won’t want to leave the club anytime soon.
