The Scottish Daily Mail are reporting that Celtic will demand £30m if we want to sign Kieran Tierney.
We have been heavily linked with the left-back in recent weeks and reporter Stephen McGowan says that sources close to the player believe the asking price for the defender has been set for interested parties.
In addition to us, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and surprisingly Bournemouth are the three other teams looking at the Scottish international. Fans on Twitter are mostly enthusiastic about the full-back joining us:

The doubts surrounding the future of Danny Rose have fed into stories linking us with signing a new left-back. Certainly, Tierney is one of the most promising young defenders on the market.
However, there are some major doubts over whether the player is even interested in leaving Celtic. He is a boyhood fan and only signed a new six-year contract back in October last year.
