Kieran Tierney has joined a growing list of reported Arsenal left-back targets this summer, after news of Brendan Rodgers’ potential departure.

With Nacho Monreal’s injury problems, his age, and the fact he’s running down his deal, it could be time to invest in a new full-back on the left-hand side. Let’s have a look at the options linked to an Arsenal transfer.

  • Age: 22
  • Current club: Leicester City
  • Contract until: 2024
  • Market value: £22.5m

Chilwell has been linked with Arsenal a lot in previous years, and those links have started to resurface this season despite the full-back’s new deal to stay in Leicester.

That’s as a result of the youngster’s impressive Premier League performances, including one against the Gunners, where he forced the opening goal in off Hector Bellerin.

Chilwell is strong in the air, a competent dribbler and a good chance creator, which are important attributes if you’re going to play in an Arsenal team. When the team’s full-backs aren’t making chances, the whole side suffers, as we’ve seen on a few occasions already this season.

If Chilwell is interested in making a step up and Arsenal are willing to pay a premium to buy him out of his contract, he could be worth the investment.
