Kieran Tierney will stay at Arsenal this summer despite reported transfer interest from Premier League champions Manchester City.

Tierney has impressed since his £25million move from Celtic in 2019 despite on-and-off injury problems, registering 87 Arsenal appearances across all competitions.

The 25-year-old Scotland international is now being linked with a step up to Pep Guardiola’s side – but it appears it will not happen any time soon.

Football Scotland report that ‘no offer has been forthcoming’ and add that ‘the general feeling among the player’s camp is that he will stick around [at Arsenal].’

The Gunners were recently linked with City left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is said to be a priority target for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.

Another City player, Gabriel Jesus, is due to undergo a medical with Arsenal ahead of his £45m move from the Etihad Stadium.

Jesus has just a year remaining on his contract and is keen to leave to secure more playing time ahead of Brazil’s World Cup campaign later this year.

The arrival of Erling Haaland at City would have also been a factor behind Jesus’ decision to leave.

Arsenal will also hold another round of talks with Raphinha’s representatives this week as they shift focus to the Leeds United star after wrapping up the Jesus deal.
