Arsenal legend Parlour hands Arsenal transfer advice over Tierney

Published on: 07 June 2020

Ray Parlour has handed Arsenal some transfer advice after speculation Kieran Tierney could be sold to Leicester City.

Scotland left-back Tierney made just 11 appearances for Arsenal this season after suffering injuries following his £25million transfer deadline-day move from Celtic last summer.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a summer move to Leicester, where he would be reunited with his former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes could be looking for a new player in Tierney's position with Chelsea believed to be targeting their England left-back Ben Chilwell.

Rodgers' side are also headed for Champions League qualification, and with Bukayo Saka having impressed at left-back for Arsenal this season, Tierney may be tempted by a to switch to the King Power Stadium.

But Gunners legend Parlour has urged Arsenal to keep hold of Tierney and give him a chance to prove his quality.

"Well he's going to be playing Champions League football with Leicester next season if he did move but I'd be amazed if Arsenal did let him go," Parlour said on TalkSport.

"It would have to be a big fee that Leicester try and prise him away [with]. I can't see [£25m], I really can't - I think they bought him for about that same sort of money.

"I know he's had his injuries but I would be amazed.

"They've got [Sead] Kolasinac on that side as well but what I've seen of [Tierney] so far when he's played, he looks a very exciting player."

The former midfielder added: "His age as well will come into it - he's only a young lad.

"He's going to get a few injuries here and there but I would definitely keep him. I would give him a run in the team once he's fit and have a look at him properly.

"But if Brendan Rodgers sees a little chink in the armour that Arsenal are thinking about letting him go, then who knows what happens?

"Football doesn't surprise you anymore does it?"
