Manx-born Tierney a "quality player" - Parlour

Arsenal legend hopes Gunners sign the defender

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes Manx-born Celtic defender Kieran Tierney would be a great addition for the Gunners.

The English Premier League side have so far failed in two attempts to prise the highly-rated Scotland international away from Celtic as the season opener draws ever closer.

Parkhead boss Neil Lennon has pointed to the £50m spent by Manchester United on Aaron Wan Bissaka as a benchmark for their valuation of Tierney.

Parlour claims the 22-year-old - who has won four straight Scottish top flight titles - could be the answer to Arsenal's defensive problems, telling TalkSPORT: "I really do hope they get Tierney because he's a real good, quality player."
