Manchester City eyeing Kieran Tierney swoop

First up in this Man City transfer quiz, which club did MCFC sign Vincent Kompany from?

After working his way through Celtic’s youth ranks, the Scotland international went on to make 170 senior appearances for the Hoops across all competitions.

In those appearances, the left-back found the net eight times and delivered 37 assists along the way.

Back in August 2019, Tierney then joined Arsenal in a deal worth £25m, where he has since gone on to score four goals and provide 12 assists in 86 appearances.

Earlier this year, Barry Ferguson claimed that should a side like Real Madrid sign the former Celtic star for a fee of £50m, this would be a bargain for them, which shows just how highly rated he is.

Guardiola’s new warrior

With 64 Premier League appearances under his belt for the Gunners, the 25-year-old has shown how much of a capable attacking figure he can be as well as a solid defensive unit.

From the attacking point of view, Tierney has made 209 crosses, 83 dribbles and racked up 107 shot-creating actions.

In terms of his defensive talent, the left-back has tackled 71 players whilst making 485 pressures, 107 blocks, 61 interceptions and 167 clearances.

This shows how much of a well-rounded player he is up and down the pitch and why he’s caught the eye of the Citizens.

Would you take Kieran Tierney at Man City?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Praised for his “unbelievable” understanding with fellow Scotsman Andy Robertson on the international stage by former Scotland striker Kris Boyd, Tierney would certainly be a solid addition to City’s ranks.

Having also been labelled as a “warrior” by former Premier League full-back Ashley Cole, the Arsenal star could be just what Pep Guardiola would want in his side from both a defensive and offensive point of view.

Taking into account how City have not been shy when it comes to signing players from fellow Premier League clubs in the past, a move for the defender is definitely not out of their reach should they look to go after him this summer.
