Speaking on Sky Sports News – via the Scottish Sun – presenter Jim White has claimed that Napoli are ready to trump Arsenal’s £25m bid for defender Kieran Tierney.
The left-back has been one of our best players for some time and with his young age in mind it has always been clear that he was going to attract interest.
Indeed, it seems as though he has teams keener on him than ever before with the Gunners and the side from Naples the two clubs that have been named more than anyone else.
And, according to White, the Italian outfit is ready to try and get themselves into pole position with a new offering.
He revealed he’d had a text from someone close to the situation and said:
“Napoli are still expected to come in with a stronger bid than Arsenal for Kieran Tierney.”
White seems to be someone that has his fingers in a lot of pies when it comes to transfer talk but there’s no reason to not believe Napoli have given up, so let’s see what happens.
