Arsenal target Kieran Tierney spotted in London

Celtic fullback Kieran Tierney has been spotted in London.

The Scotland international is a summer target for Arsenal.

The Mirror says the Gunners are confident of landing Celtic left-back Tierney after bidding £15m plus a player, although that was rejected by Celtic as they hold out for closer to £25m.

Arsenal are expected to return with an improved £19m offer for the 22-year-old, who has been likened to Liverpool and Scotland star Andy Robertson.

Excitement among fans grew, with many speculating that he might have travelled down to discuss personal terms with Unai Emery's team, who desperately need reinforcements to strengthen their top-four challenge for next season.

But he was down south to see Scottish MMA star Chris Bungard, who revealed: "Kieran is a friend. During pre-season he would sometimes come down to the gym and do a bit of training.

"But outside of the gym we go for food and stuff like that. He's a great guy."
