Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta plans to keep 26-year-old full-back Kieran Tierney at the club for next season.
According to Football Transfers, Arsenal are keen on keeping Kieran Tierney at the club for next season amidst talks of a potential transfer.
The Scottish full-back is not happy with the limited game time he got in the 2022/23 season and has been looking for a move away from the club.
However, Mikel Arteta is keen on having him in his ranks for next season.
The 26-year-old was not happy with his limited involvement and has been thinking of joining another club in search of regular time.
Manchester City are one of the clubs interested in the Scotland international.
But, Arsenal were not interested in letting him join their title challengers midway through the season.
At this point in time, there are talks of a swap deal involving Tierney as the Gunners look to land Joao Cancelo.
He is keen on having the 26-year-old in their ranks for next season.
Arteta has held talks with the Scotland international and has assured him that he will have an extended role in the team next season.
Meanwhile, even if Cancelo ends up joining the team, he will be used primarily for the right-back position.
With Arteta ready to give the 26-year-old full-back an extended run in the team and talks progressing in the right direction, Tierney is expected to stay at Arsenal for next season.
