As Arsenal develops a new transfer strategy, Kieran Tierney might continue competing in the Champions League.

After falling down the pecking order at the Emirates, Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney is expected to sign a loan deal with LaLiga side Real Sociedad for the remainder of the league season.

As he continues to battle for playing time with Arsenal’s first team, Kieran Tierney is close to agreeing to a loan deal with Real Sociedad in Spain.

The Scotland international is one of many players that Mikel Arteta is trying to trim from his overstuffed squad, and the Gunners are looking to offload before the window closes. In order to balance the books after a period of heavy spending that saw the club sign players like Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber, Kai Havertz, and David Raya on loan, the Arsenal manager hoped to recover some money.

Arsenal preferred to part ways permanently with Tierney, but Socidead has only entertained the idea of signing the former Celtic left-back on a loan. Sporting director for the Gunners Edu had hoped to include a buy-back or obligation clause in the agreement, but was unsuccessful in doing so.

With that said, the LaLiga team has agreed to fully pay Tierney’s salary and to part ways without paying a loan fee. The 26-year-old decided to play his first-team football regularly and participate in the Champions League, so Sociedad was his final destination.

Tierney has not been included in any matchday squads for Arsenal in the Premier League so far this year. The left-back appeared destined for Newcastle at the start of the transfer window, but the Magpies chose to sign Lewis Hall from Chelsea.

When asked recently about the future of his club, Tierney said: “It’s not really up to me, I’m happy, I’m working hard every day, and I’m getting minutes. Simply put, I’m doing the best I can. Given that many fans believe the Scotsman is frequently in the hospital, he was also passionate in defending his fitness record.

Expected Real Sociedad signing is Kieran Tierney.

Last year, he claimed, “I never missed a game due to injury.”. “I was available for every game and prepared to play when needed, it’s football.

Every game, every season, and every year are not things you can play. Even though I still made a lot of appearances last year, I don’t anticipate that.

“I was prepared for every game and gave it my all. Everyone there would probably concur that, whether I’m playing or not, I never give anything less than that. I gave my all for the team in the games I did play. Last year, I frequently came off the bench to finish games or assist in scoring goals. “.

Truthfully, Tierney’s future at Arsenal has been written all over the board for quite some time. In the left-back pecking order, he is behind Oleksandr Zinchenko, Takehiro Tomiyasu, and the injured Timber.
