It is not the first time that Celtic defender is being linked with a Premier League move.

Van Dijk went to Southampton and then Liverpool as the world's most expensive defender.

And Deila, who coached both players, thinks Tierney has better mentality than Dutch international van Dijk.

He told the Scottish Sun: "Kieran would be really, really good at Arsenal I know it.

"He needs to improve a little bit technically, still. But at the same time he has everything else already and will learn the rest.

"I think Kieran has an even better mentality than Virgil. That's what I saw at that time.

"Virgil, of course, has gone on to a different level since leaving Celtic, but at the time I worked with them both Kieran was even better.

"They both had the physical attributes to play at the highest level. Virgil had everything. But Tierney has the same."

<![CDATA[Lennon hints Celtic want Wan-Bissaka money for Arsenal target Tierney]]> <p>Celtic manager Neil Lennon has hinted the club will demand more money for Arsenal target Kieran Tierney.</p><p>The Northern Irishman confirmed the Gunners had failed with their second bid for the Scotland international fullback.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/celtic-boss-lennon-claims-arsenal-target-tierney-more-experienced-and-rounded-than-wan-bissaka-4289124?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BCeltic'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Celtic manager Neil Lennon has hinted the club will demand more money for Arsenal target Kieran Tierney.

The Northern Irishman confirmed the Gunners had failed with their second bid for the Scotland international fullback.

And Lennon added Tierney is a "far more experienced and rounded full-back" than Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who Manchester United bought for 50m this summer.

He said: "We can't do anything about what clubs do in England.

"50m for Wan-Bissaka is a lot of money and we feel that Kieran is a far more experienced and rounded full-back at this juncture in his career.

"He's an asset for us and we do have a value for the player and we rate the player very highly.

"So disrespectful is the wrong word but we're certainly not going to be pushed over in any negotiations and we're in a very strong position with regard to a number of our assets in the team.

Lennon said that although Tierney may be the subject of interest, "the club's valuation of Kieran has not been met and until then we don't have a discussion to make.

"I don't know what Arsenal's financial state is. I know what ours is and we are quite comfortable with the situation at the moment.

"There has been a second bid, the bid has been rejected and it's as you were."

The Daily Express says the Scottish champions turned down the Gunners' second bid, which they submitted on Friday.

The deal was potentially worth 25m but the Parkhead hierarchy were unhappy with the way it was structured and the fact that it included a number of add-ons to get to the top-line figure.

Celtic want the bulk of any potential transfer fee paid up front, with the add-ons guaranteed and with a sell-on clause before they would even consider sanctioning a deal for their prized asset.

Arsenal are starting to lose patience but will come back with a revised proposal. They tabled their first bid last month but their offer of 15m was dismissed out of hand.

The Scottish international is a key target for the Gunners this summer.

However, the Evening Standard indicates Arsenal are no closer to securing his transfer.

A second bid of around 25 million has still been deemed as not enough by Celtic.

The Scottish giants may accept the total amount, but would like more of the fee up front.

Arsenal are operating on a limited 40 million summer transfer budget.

Arsenal have had two offers rejected for the Scotland international, who reportedly wants to join the Premier League club.

And Petrov has warned the Bhoys they must avoid a protracted transfer saga as they look to claim a ninth consecutive Scottish Premiership title.

He told the Sunday Post: "There comes a point in the careers of footballers that they weigh things up and make important decisions.

"Kieran Tierney may be in that position in this transfer window.

"If he goes, then the club will get excellent money for him. If he stays, then they are holding on to a quality footballer.

"But these are the kind of matters that you want resolved as soon as possible. It's important to know where you stand and what needs to be done."

Arsenal have seen a second bid of 25million rejected for Celtic left-back Tierney.

The Sun says Arsenal's offer has been turned down due to the structure of the proposed deal.

The Scottish giants are open to letting Tierney leave for the Premier League but they are holding out for 25m upfront.

Unai Emery's side are expected to make a third offer for the Scotland international as they look to wrap up his signing as soon as possible before the new season.

The fullback has been the subject of two rejected offers from Arsenal, the latest reportedly worth 25m.

The Gunners could get a boost with The Sun claiming Tierney, 22, wants to make the move sooner rather than later.

A Celtic source - quoted by The Sun - said: "Kieran loves Celtic but his heart is set on a move to the Premier League.

"We all know he wants to further his career and offers like this do not come along often, so it looks inevitable."

The Mirror says Arsenal's improved 25million offer for Celtic left-back Tierney has been rejected, according to reports.

The Gunners were reported to have made an improved bid for the Scotland defender on Friday , after their initial 15million bid was turned down last month.

Celtic had been holding out for 25million, and while Arsenal's improved offer is believed to reach that sum when including appearance-based add-ons, it doesn't give the Scottish Premier League champions the figure up front.

Gunners boss Unai Emery has just 45million to work with this summer after they failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The Daily Mail says the Gunners had a 15m bid rejected for the Scotland defender last month, with Celtic holding out for closer to 25m.

Napoli looked set to battle Arsenal for Tierney but another offer has been made to the Scottish champions.

Unai Emery's men have returned with an offer that reaches the 25m on appearance based add-ons, although it doesn't give Celtic that figure up front.

Celtic's resolve is likely to be tested with the offer with the club's board contemplating their next step.
