Arsenal target Kieran Tierney is in constant pain when he kicks a ball according to Celtic head coach Neil Lennon.
Arsenal have been linked with the left-back having seen two bids for Tierney rejected. It is believed the Gunners will make a third bid for the 22-year-old in a bid to reinforce their defence ahead of the new season. And Lennon has revealed the defender still suffers from a double hernia operation he had earlier this year as well as carrying a groin issue.
"Kieran started kicking a ball on Wednesday, but he’s still feeling some discomfort there. We’ll see how it is when things settle down because it’s a very unsettling time for him at the minute,” he said.
“Nothing has changed yet. It’s not speaking from insider knowledge, but in my experience, another bid will come in. I’d be surprised if it didn’t. I’d also be delighted if didn’t, but the good things are we will know either way by the end of the week when the window shuts down there.”
“It’s not our problem, but the next few days might be spent sitting by the phone. Kieran is still feeling pain. He was out kicking a ball on Wednesday and just felt a lot of discomforts. I don’t know how far away he is.”
The north London side have already completed the signing of Nicolas Pepe, but the hopes of landing the Celtic star could be in jeopardy with the Scot facing two months on the sidelines.
