Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney, currently on loan at Real Sociedad, is reportedly considering a return to Scotland, sparking speculation about a potential move back to his former club, Celtic. According to Team Talk, while Real Sociedad is keen to secure a permanent deal, Tierney’s desire to return to his homeland could open doors for a Celtic reunion.

Tierney, who has an impressive record of 170 appearances and a notable contribution of goals and assists at Celtic, shares a strong relationship with Brendan Rodgers. This bond might influence his decision, especially as Celtic aims to enhance their squad for European competitions.

At Arsenal, Tierney’s journey involved a £25m move in 2019 and a series of performances under different management styles. However, with Arsenal’s tactical shifts under Mikel Arteta, Tierney has faced competition for his position.

Despite a La Liga opportunity and an injury setback limiting his appearances, Tierney’s focus remains on regaining fitness, especially with the upcoming Euros. His potential return to Celtic could be a significant move, marking a strategic reinforcement for the Scottish club.

The question is, could Celtic afford to bring him in? If they could, would it be prudent to spend a large chunk of cash on a player with a history of injuries?
