Arsenal can sign another Tierney in Hibernian’s Josh Doig

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are monitoring Hibernian left-back Josh Doig.

What’s the story?

With Sead Kolasinac having joined Bundesliga side Schalke on loan in the January transfer window, Arsenal are short of options at left-back, with Kieran Tierney the Gunners’ only natural, senior option in that position.

Starting off with an easy one...

And now, Sky Sports claim that along with Celtic and Chelsea, Mikel Arteta’s side are also tracking Hibs’ 18-year-old defender, Doig, and that they are closely monitoring his progress.

Hailed by Hibernian boss Jack Ross as being “brilliant” this season, Doig has broken onto the scene for the Scottish Premiership side, making 16 appearances in the league alone.

Goal claim that “scouts have noted Doig’s attacking output as a huge part of his game, with his crossing ability and tireless running two of his key attributes”.

And when you look at the last Scottish left-back that Arsenal bought – Kieran Tierney – you can see why Doig could be another shrewd acquisition from the Gunners’ scouting team.

Mikel Arteta shouting

Arsenal secured their first win under Mikel Arteta against Manchester United. Can you name the two goal-scorers on the night?

Tierney has been a revelation since his arrival from Celtic, and has been one of the Gunners’ stand-out, and most consistent, performers this campaign – he’s missed only three games in the Premier League, and has picked up three assists, including a virtuoso display against West Brom when he scored one and made one too.

Then, when you factor in the fact Kolasinac could be set for a more permanent exit in the summer – Arteta allowed the Bosnian to leave the club on loan and join Schalke this month even despite the lack of depth in that position – and it makes that much more sense for the Gunners to wave goodbye to the man signed by Arsene Wenger, and bring in Doig.

Meanwhile, this Arsenal star was outstanding against Southampton…
