Arsenal have opened talks with Scotland star Kieran Tierney over a new deal with the Premier League club (FL).

The Scotland international joined Arsenal in a deal worth £25million two years ago and despite battling numerous injuries during his time down south, has established himself as one of Europe’s best left-back players.

Tierney still has three years to run on his current Arsenal contract but it has been reported that the London club will offer him a new one to reflect his standing in the squad. The left-back will play centre-back this afternoon as Scotland play Czech Republic at Euro 2020, the nation’s first match at a major tournament since 1998.

Scotland manager Steve Clarke says there is no pressure on his players: “We have done well to be in the tournament. We are looking forward to it.  We are going to go and give our best and give our all in every single game. And we are going to try and make the next step to the knockout stages, which would be a first for the men’s national team.

 

“The country, the Tartan Army, they can get over-excited for us.”
