According to the Daily Record, both Arsenal and Napoli have given up on Kieran Tierney for this summer now and that leaves us with a real chance of keeping the defender after all.
This is news that we have all been hoping for for some time but, it’s safe to say, that many of us were perhaps not expecting it.
Indeed, it did seem as though both sides were keen on the player this summer and Arsenal were making a real effort to get him in but they have now given up the pursuit.
Napoli, meanwhile, also look to have thrown in the towel and, though the window still hasn’t been great, at least it hasn’t got considerably worse here.
Of course, until the deadline passes I won’t be getting too excited but it is clear that the Hoops have got the ability to hold onto their best players in the face of good money and hopefully that will be a continuing trend.
