According to reports over the weekend, Arsenal have turned to an old transfer target in Ricardo Rodriguez as they’ve been put off by Celtic’s £25m price tag for Tierney.

That’s strange given he’s always been priced at £25m so it’s more likely Arsenal have realised they can’t get Celtic to shift on their valuation.

Admitting things are ‘as you were’ in regards to Arsenal and their £15m bid that was rejected.

Tierney is still recovering following a double hernia operation in May and Lennon added, “I spoke to Kieran in Austria (training camp) and to be honest I haven’t really seen much of him because he came back early for rehab, so has not been on the training ground as yet.”
