Football Talk: Arsenal eye Tierney, Waghorn in demand
It might be international week but there’s no let-up in the relentless flow of summer transfer stories.Arsene Wenger’s woes are well-documented but the Frenchman is ready to rip it up and start again with Celtic’s Kieran Tierney as part of his new-look Arsenal.If Wenger hires a plane to fly over the Emirates with a “Sign Tierney” banner dragging behind, expect Brendan Rodgers to respond with a “Kieran must stay” fly-past.Another manager looking to revamp a squad at the end of the season is Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha, who might be pondering a replacement for Martyn Waghorn as he prepares to meet Dave King. Mark Warburton is said to be keen to be reunited with the forward at Nottingham Forest but a handful of other English clubs have been linked. Canada’s interim manager Michael Findlay has said that David Moyes shaped his management style and that might explain why he’s going for a bit of Britishness in the middle of the park in the shape of Scott Arfield. The Burnley star played for Scotland at youth level but opted to switch after not getting a senior call-up but now says he wouldn’t get into Gordon Strachan’s team anyway.And in a 21st century reverse of Luther Blissett’s complaint that he couldn’t get Rice Krispies at AC Milan, Inter loanee Andrea Ranocchia has said he’s struggling to settle in at Hull City because he misses pasta. Penne for your thoughts?
