Reports: Arsenal have not given up on signing Wilfred Zaha and Kieran Tierney

Despite reports earlier in the week that Arsenal has given up on their pursuit for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, the Gunners are still hopeful of getting the deal over the line.

The Londoners have had two bids rejected by the Scottish Champions who want 25 million Euros for the injured player. On Tuesday, Celtic manager Neil Lennon confirmed that indeed Arenal have had two bids rejected and Celtic are not desperate to sell.

“They put a bid in that they valued the player at. They came back again and obviously see Kieran as a very good player, as we do. But on a long-term contract, we’re in a very strong position when it comes to Kieran,” he said.

However, on Wednesday, reports emerged claiming that Arsenal are still in deep negotiations to sign the player alongside Crystal Palace’s Wilfred Zaha.

Unai Emery is a big admirer of Ivory Coast International Wilfred Zaha but Arsenal’s transfer budget is not what Crystal Palace are prepared to sell him for which has proved a major stumbling block in getting a deal done.

However, should a move for Zaha failed to materialize, the Gunners will look to sign Everton Soares from Brazilian side Gremio. The 22-year-old is the plan B to Zaha with Arsenal’s new Techincal director Edu a huge fan of the player.
