Kieran Tierney is finally an Arsenal player after the club announced his arrival on what is believed to be a five-year deal worth £75kpw.

The club will pay Celtic £25m which is what the Scottish side have said they wanted all summer.

Arsenal have been chasing Tierney since at least 2016 when Arsene Wenger and co. were at the club. For whatever reason, a deal was never done but it seems one call from Raul Sanllehi was enough to make it happen.

I swear, the best thing Ivan Gazidis did during his time at Arsenal was hire Raul Sanllehi and then sod off.

Arsenal fans will have to wait a while before they get to see Tierney playing, however.

He is currently recovering from a double-hernia operation and should be back in training in one-to-two weeks.
