Scotland star Kieran Tierney is set to be given a new Arsenal contract after his form with the Emirates club (Guardian).
Steve Clarke’s defender has established himself as one of Europe’s best full-backs with his form at Arsenal. He joined the London club in a £25million deal two years ago and was outstanding for Scotland on Friday as the nation drew 0-0 with England at Euro 2020.
It has been reported that Tierney has agreed a new five-year deal at Arsenal, which will run until the summer of 2026. He’ll stand to make almost £29million between now and then, meaning any potential exit from the Premier League giants would have to include a massive fee.
Tierney still has three years to run on his existing deal at Arsenal, but will be given a boost in wages to the tune of £110,000 per week, reflecting how vital the Scotland star is to Mikel Arteta’s side. He’ll be key for Clarke’s on Tuesday against Croatia, a victory in this match likely enough to see Scotland into the knockout stages of the Euros.
