Tottenham Opinion: Why should Spurs hijack the deal for Kieran Tierney?

According to a report from The Sun, Tottenham have entered the transfer battle for Celtic’s Kieran Tierney, who has been a priority for fellow Premier League rivals Arsenal for a while.

The report also adds that Spurs are ready to pounce on the Scottish left-back should the Gunners fail to match his £25m transfer fee. (h/t The Sun)

Tierney has been instrumental for the Bhoys over the course, playing more than 100 games since he broke into the main team in 2015.

The 22-year-old never looked out of sorts in any of the seasons so far, as he bagged the club’s Young Player award for three consecutive years.

In the 2018/19 campaign, the full-back racked up a goal and six assists before undergoing a facial surgery in the later stage of the season. He has also earned 12 international caps for the Scottish national team.

Spurs need defensive reinforcements with Danny Rose’s future in the limbo

Elsewhere at North London, Danny Rose’s future at Spurs is hanging in the air, as he earlier hinted at a summer exit.

Regardless, Spurs should still consider a move for a left-back since Rose endured a lacklustre season last term and the 28-year-old can’t be a viable addition for the club’s long-term future.

Given that, Mauricio Pocehttino can benefit from the services of Tierney, considering his young age and the reputation he has earned in the Scottish League.

The Celts’ full-back possesses enormous pace and also can play high up the flanks, which signifies his contributions in the attacking third.

Moreover, the above factor is what the Argentine manager wants in his trademark high-pressing style of play, where the full-backs often function as the catalysts. This would allow the Scottish international to settle with ease in the Premier League.

Having already added some promising talents like Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke to the squad, Tierney would be a massive signing, given Pochettino’s need to reinforce the left-back position.

Final Verdict

Whilst there has been a clear resurgence for Spurs under the former Southampton manager, trophies are still missing in their cabinet.

After a successful 2018/19 campaign, where Spurs made history by ending as the runners up in Champions League, Pochettino can push the limits in the upcoming season as he had broken the long-running transfer drought at last. 

Whilst the current squad looks completely revamped and promising, adding another exciting talent like Tierney would make them a force to reckon with.
