Arsenal summer window was one of the most active windows in recent times for the club. They signed Six players spending over 150m pounds on them. From signing Ben White in defence to signing Martin Ødegaard in attacking, they bought them all. But one player who flourished under Arteta was Kieran Tierney, who was purchased by Unai Emery.

Spanish source El Espanol affirms that Laliga giant has shortlisted Tierney as one of the players who can succeed Marcelo. So, Tierney can be a backup for Ferland Mendy but as well challenge him for a first-team spot. He is just 24 and has already played more than 240 games at the club level. Arsenal won’t be willing to sell Tierney. But, when clubs like Real Madrid comes, you have to give it a think. Tierney signed an extension with Arsenal till the year 2026, this makes it difficult for Real Madrid. He has scored 1 goal and 3 assists in the Nineteen games he played this season for Arsenal.
Real Madrid has valued Kieran for less than €30m, which is very little. With age and a long term contract in his hand, Kieran has been valued at Arsenal for more than €50m. Tierney, a starter at Arsenal is also said to be Arsenal’s next captain. Tierney has also become fans favourite and they call him captain without an armband.
With Marcelo looking to retire, Madrid will surely be in-market to replace the Brazilian with another quality fullback. But if Real Madrid is looking to snatch Arsenal’s important player he won’t be available for cheap.
