As the transfer window deadline approaches, Arsenal have endured a relatively quiet summer so far.
However, following reports in recent weeks that Unai Emery’s side were hopeful of getting a deal done for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, an update on the situation has made for grim reading for Arsenal.
According to The Daily Mirror, both the Gunners and Celtic have apparently reached a deadlock over talks after the two sides couldn’t agree on the payment structure of a potential deal.
Hoops manager Neil Lennon has also said: “There has been no further inroads into that really. Our valuation of Kieran wasn’t met and it’s as simple as that.”
After hearing the news that a move for one of their prime targets for the summer could be dead in the water, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the matter.
Many supporters of the north London side revealed their frustrations over the Gunners’ dithering and simply stated that they have become a “joke club”.
Indeed, some fans even mocked Josh Kroenke’s comments over being excited for the remainder of the summer window and said that it is “inexcusable” for the club to avoid sorting out their problems in defence.
Check out some of the reaction of Arsenal fans below:

Banter club, can’t wait for Kolasinac and Mustafi to give Steve Bruce’s Newcastle a 2-1 win to start the season and then a disaster class 6-1 defeat at Anfield. If we don’t get a LB and CB in, i want this new regime and Emery sacked. Inexcusable to not sort this out

Game over. We won’t get better at LB. dreadful penny pinching

This club is so infuriating we cant afford to pay 25 million for a player let’s be honest if he was in the premier league would be double that
