Arsenal and Scotland star Kieran Tierney is currently enjoying some good form – but now a shock move away from the UK has been suggested for the defender.

The Arsenal left-back, who can also play at centre-back, has been immense in recent weeks for the Gunners. Again at the weekend he shone during the 2-0 FA Cup win over Newcastle United.

In that game he was Man of the Match after another lung-bursting game in attack and defence. In recent weeks he has been tipped to become Arsenal captain one day by manager Mikel Arteta and pundits alike and it’s not hard to see why.

But he’s been linked with an exit from the Emirates 18 months into his stay in North London. Italian giants Napoli have been linked with a shock move for the in-form left-back, who has been a long-time target of the Serie A club

This isn’t the first time Napoli have been linked with Scottish talent in recent weeks with Billy Gilmour also attracting interest. It has been reported that the Serie A club are keen to take the Chelsea teenager on loan.

These claims have been batted back in recent weeks though with the suggestion that Gilmour is set to play a key role for Frank Lampard in the second half of this season. Now their attention moves to the Arsenal man.

Tierney is in such good form and it is only natural that teams would begin to circle for his services once more. This form if he can keep it up could be inspiring for Scotland at Euro 2020 next summer.
