ARSENAL are preparing to cut their losses this summer on injury hit Kieran Tierney by re-couping their £25million by selling the former Celtic Star to his former manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Leicester City boss is well aware of the considerable attributes of the Arsenal left back who has managed just eleven appearances for the Gunners since his move from Celtic last August and has so far the former Celt has played only 5 times in the Premier League.
Tierney had a double hernia operation last May and was still injured when completing his £25million move just before the English transfer window closed in mid-August. Then towards the end of the year he injured his shoulder and has been sidelined ever since.
Today, in a exclusive report on 90min.com it’s claimed that Brendan Rodgers is planning to take Kieran off Arsenal’s hands this summer as he prepares for the expected departure of England star Ben Chilwell.
And if this report is correct, Arsenal are interested in getting their money back and looking elsewhere for a replacement. The new Arsenal manager, the former Rangers player Mikel Arteta, has spoken in glowing terms about Kieran Tierney earlier this week.
“He has been training. His work ethic is incredible. I have been really impressed with him so hopefully we can get him back soon but we need to be a little bit patient with him,” Arteta said, as reported by MailOnline.
Rodgers left Celtic in controversial circumstances last February, sneaking off in the dead of night to drive to the East Midlands and take the Leicester City job. He also cleared out as many of the back-room staff at Celtic as he could and it was left to Neil Lennon to steady the ship and win both the League and the Scottish Cup.
