Transfer: ‘You’re a good player’ – Agbonlahor urges Arsenal star not to leave club


Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor, has urged Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney to stay at the club amidst reported links with Real Sociedad.

Tierney was signed by Arsenal from Celtic in 2019 for €27million.

The Scotland international was expected to be Arsenal’s first-choice left-back.

But after an injury-hit debut season in England, Tierney was Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s starting left-back for two seasons.

However, constant injuries plagued him at the Emirates, and Arsenal went out and signed Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City last summer.

Tierney has since been linked with a move to Real Sociedad and Agbonlahor reckons he is a good player and should snub a move to the La Liga side.

The former England international told TalkSPORT: “Don’t you think Tierney is better than that (move to Real Sociedad. He is a good player.

“I think this season, if you look at the Community Shield, Timber, the new signing played at left-back.

“He looks good. You have Zinchenko to come back as well. He should be playing every week, Tierney. Not now and again.”
