Arsenal star Unai Emery is reportedly set to cash in on Celtic star Kieran Tierney ahead of the summer transfer window.

It is reported that Kieran Tierney is one of the three targets of the Spanish boss to strengthen his team ahead of the coming season.

With the North London outfit failing to do deals in the last winter transfer window due to financial reasons, Unai Emery has already given the hint that the club will do some business in the summer window and the fund that would be invested will be largely dependent on whether the club qualifies for the Champions League or not.

It is claimed that the North London outfit are not alone in the race for Kieran Tierney as former Premier League champions Leicester City are also keeping tabs on the 21-year-old.

However, Celtic have a contract with Kieran Tierney until 2023 with suggestions that they will have him leave the club should they receive a luring offer.

This, therefore, makes the race for Kieran Tierney open as Leicester City are also keen on having him more than the Emirates Stadium side.

Meanwhile, it is claimed that the Gunners boss will have just £40 million to spend in the coming summer window but it could be increased if the team qualifies for the Champions League.

The Gunners want to strengthen their team and there are suggestions that manager Unai Emery is keen to land a new attacker to be able to provide the competition for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in the team.

Marcus Thuram is a known name because of his father, Lillian Thuram who was part of the France 1998 World Cup winning team and has been tipped to continue the glory in the game just like his father did.

The young lad has been on the radar of a number of European sides but the North London outfit are hoping they can win the race for his signature ahead of others.

However, manager Unai Emery has been reported to have £40 million available for the summer window but it is claimed that it would be improved upon if he is able to secure qualification to the Champions League next season.

English Premiership outfit Arsenal are reported to be keen on the signature of Championship outfit Charlton starlet Joe Aribo and could sign him in the coming summer transfer window.

Despite interest from a number of clubs, the North London outfit are reported to be positive and have had on several occasions the Addicks academy product this season.

With the Gunners team looking forward to storming the summer transfer window, Joe Aribo is believed to be a major part of the Unai Emery wish list with suggestions that a bid would be submitted for his signature as soon as the season ends.

The Championship star has got a lot of qualities to succeed at the Emirates Stadium as he is well composed and tall.

Joe Aribo is a left-footed midfielder who is one of the best Charlton can boast of. This is the reason why he has caught the attention of a number of big sides but Arsenal seem to be at the forefront.

So far this season, he has made 28 appearances and has six goals for the League One promotion chasers.

However, the North London outfit will be encouraged by the fact that Joe Aribo will be out of contract at the end of the season and he could just be available for a cheap price because of his age.

Unai Emery

The North London outfit, Arsenal failed to get busy in the last winter transfer window with an excuse that the club does not believe in the transfer window while it was also stated that they have got insufficient funds to strike major deals.

However, manager Unai Emery already gave the hint that the club already have plans to sign new players in the coming summer window, ahead of the coming season.

It was also claimed that the club management have made available £40 million for the Spanish manager to spend in the summer window which is no doubt, not enough to pull all the strings that are needed.

However, it is now revealed that the former PSG boss has made up his mind to bring in three players in the summer window.

He has therefore been tipped to move in for a midfielder as it is now sure that Wales international Aaron Ramsey would be leaving to the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus at the end of the season. There is a need to have him replaced.

More so, a defender or two would be a good buy for the Spanish boss knowing that they have been unable to hold from conceding in games, even if they end up winning.

However, it is unsure if the Spanish manager Unai Emery will be willing to assure him a regular playing time ahead of the coming season because of his age and the need to win trophies in the coming season.

North London outfit Arsenal might have concluded on who becomes the sporting director after claims of a shake-up at the club and promotion to the carder for some of the club chiefs.

The Gunners lost Sven Mislintat after he decided to leave the Emirates Stadium and they have since been in the search for a replacement as the summer window draws near. A number of names have already been linked with the job.

Former AS Roma chief Monchi was earlier linked with the job but he dumped the Arsenal team to join his former Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla which keeps the Gunners still in the search.

Former player Marc Overmars has also been linked with the job but they are fears that he would not be released by Ajax who are bent on his presence at the club.

However, Steve Morrow is being linked as he could be promoted by the club to a sporting director role. He is currently the head of youth scouting but he could now be asked to work with manager Unai Emery in the coming summer window.

Meanwhile, there are hints that the Gunners will only make available £40 million for Unai Emery in the summer window but it could increase if he qualifies the club to the Champions League next season.

After a quiet winter transfer window, the summer window is opening in coming months and the North London outfit Arsenal will be participating actively if reports from the British press are to be believed.

More so, the Gunners boss Unai Emery has already given the hint that the club will do some business in the coming summer window despite having just £40 million to spend in the market, which could increase on the condition that they qualify to the Champions League next season.

Arsenal is the club amongst the top six sides to have conceded the most gals which is the reason why signing a defender will be their priority and they have decided to look to the direction of Argentina defender Walter Kannemann.

Walter Kannemann is 28 and plays for a Brazilian outfit Gremio. His quality has made it that he has been attracted to a number of top European sides and they are fears that he would not last long at the South American side until he secures a move to Europe.

The North London outfit will, therefore, face battle with other top English Premier League sides and Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid with all of the clubs coming up with offers in the summer window.

Gareth Bale

North London outfit Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been told to replace Mesut Ozil with Real Madrid star Gareth Bale in the summer transfer window.

There is no doubt that the Gunner boss has not been satisfied with the level of the German international as he has severally urged Mesut Ozil to do more to be able to secure a starting role in his team.

No wonder the former Real Madrid star has been left out of the team for a number of games this season due to his unsatisfactory performance. He currently earns £350-a-week at the Emirates Stadium with the Spanish boss holding the opinion that he does not give as much as he earns.

However, Arsenal legend Paul Merson has told the Spanish boss not to worry about Mesut Ozil but to have him replaced by Wales international Gareth Bale.

Gareth Bale has been consistently linked away from the Spanish Capital with claims that he could be moving to the Old Trafford to join Man United. The development signals his availability.

The Gunners legend has, therefore, told the former PSG boss to move in for the player as he would be good for the club because of his speed and goal-scoring ability.

Granit Xhaka

There are suggestions that Arsenal fans will feel betrayed after learning that Swiss international Granit Xhaka is seeking to leave the club after dropping a hint ahead of the summer transfer window.

Granit Xhaka was rewarded a new deal in the last summer and has been a major part of the manager Unai Emery team but that seems not to be enough for him.

According to him, he wants to play at the highest level and Arsenal might not be the club at the level or might not be able to hand him the opportunity to play at the highest level, which is the Champions League.

The North London outfit have missed out on two consecutive Champions League seasons and are now battling to gain promotion with a top-four finish. It seems unsatisfactory for the star player.

Granit Xhaka stated that he is an ambitious player who will seek a better option by taking the next step as he stressed that Arsenal might not be the last stop for him.

However, it is not sure how manager Unai Emery will react to comments made by the Swiss international but there is no doubt that he will continue to make use of Granit Xhaka as a major part of the team.

It could be recalled that Man United and Arsenal had a very intense rivalry but for Ryan Giggs, he had it personal with Emmanuel Petit because of his long hair.

According to the Red Devils former player, the rivalry between both teams motivated his team and legendary boss Alex Ferguson to want to win ahead of the Gunners team.

Ryan Giggs made it clear that he never liked Arsenal and some of the players at that time, including Patrick Vieira because of his dirty play which he was never punished for.

Emmanuel Petit is not the only player Ryan Giggs will not like to see on the pitch as he added that he had the dislike for Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires.

According to Ryan Giggs, the rivalry with the Arsenal team was even deeper than that of Liverpool but he was happy as the end result of all of that increased their competitive spirit.

However, the rivalry remains, but not as intense as it used to be. The last time the North London outfit clashed with the Red Devils, it ended in a 2-0 win for the Arsenal team.
