Real Madrid are reportedly plotting a £50m swoop for Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Scottish defender has enjoyed another strong season in defence for the Champions League-chasing Gunners - scoring once and providing three assists in 22 Premier League games so far.

Tierney extended his contract with Arsenal until the summer of 2026 last year, and he has been tipped to take over as captain should current skipper Alexandre Lacazette depart as a free agent this summer.

However, the Sunday Post claims that Real Madrid are hoping to lure the Scotland international away from North London with a £50m offer, but they will face competition from Barcelona.

The report adds that Los Blancos' chief scout Juni Calafat took a liking to Tierney while assessing Bukayo Saka, and Arsenal may be prepared to sanction an exit for the left-back for the right price.

Tierney has already won the FA Cup with Arsenal and boasts four goals and 12 assists in 87 games for the Gunners since arriving from Celtic in 2019.
