Tottenham ‘clear favourites’ to make Celtic star Pochettino’s first summer signing

Tottenham Hotspur are favourites according to Bookmakers – BetStars – to sign Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the summer transfer window.

The Scotland captain has enjoyed a stellar impressive season with the Glasgow giants, registering over 40 appearances across all competitions, netting four goals and with a total 11 assists.

Tierney’s superb form has sparked interest with from top Premier League team with the likes of the Spurs, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool among other clubs all said to be interested.

However, it would appear that Tottenham are leading the race to sign the defender as their potential replacement for Danny Rose who has been said to leave the club in a £53m move to Old Trafford after losing his first-team chances to Ben Davies this season following a long-term injury.

BetStars Director of Trading Ian Marmion said:

“Kieran Tierney’s impressive season for Celtic has drawn the attention of a host of Premier League clubs, with Tottenham leading the chase for the young defender.

“Mauricio Pochettino’s side are the clear 2/1 favourites to sign the 20-year-old, who has made 45 appearances for Scottish champions Celtic this season.

“Spurs face competition from Bournemouth and Manchester United to complete a deal for Tierney. The Cherries can be found at 3/1 as they seek a long-term replacement for 31-year-old left-back Charlie Daniels, whilst the Red Devils are priced at 5/1 to land the defender with Luke Shaw’s exit looking increasingly likely.

“Everton and Chelsea, at odds of 6/1 and 10/1 respectively, represent the outsiders in the race to sign Tierney.”
