Tottenham could make a £10 million move for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in January, according to the Mirror, after the Scottish champions failed to qualify for the Champions League.
Spurs were expected to move for a left-back this summer with Danny Rose deemed likely to leave the club. Rose remains a Tottenham player, however, with less than two weeks until the European transfer window closes.
It has been well documented that Spurs failed to make a single summer signing. And if a report from the Mirror is to be believed, Tierney is yet another player the north Londoners were interested in until his valuation became apparent.
The Mirror claims Celtic slapped a £20 million on the left-back during the summer. But after their failure to qualify for the Champions League, they risk losing him for just £10 million in the January transfer window.
Tierney, 22, has previously been linked with Manchester United, as has Rose. But Luke Shaw appears to have won round Jose Mourinho this season, meaning Tottenham could have a free run at Tierney – although are Everton are also said to be interested.
