Real Madrid ‘identify Kieran Tierney as transfer target’

Real Madrid could reportedly make a move for Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney during this summer’s transfer window.

The 24-year-old has again been an important player for the Gunners during the 2021-22 campaign, making 19 appearances in all competitions, contributing one goal and three assists in the process.

Tierney has a contract at the Emirates Stadium until June 2026, but according to El Espanol, Real Madrid are ready to explore the possibility of signing the Scotland international ahead of next season.

The report claims that Los Blancos are determined to improve their full-back options this summer, with Marcelo set to leave on a free transfer following the expiration of his deal.

Tierney is allegedly viewed as the ideal player to compete with Ferland Mendy for the left-back spot this season, while the Scot’s ability to play as a centre-back is also thought to be appealing.

The former Celtic youngster has scored four times and registered 12 assists in 81 appearances for the Gunners since arriving at the North London club in August 2019.
