You didn’t listen to me – Pat Nevin slams Chelsea over Arsenal star

Chelsea hero, Pat Nevin has slammed his former club for ignoring advice to sign now Arsenal left-back, Kieran Tierney from Celtic in 2019.

Arsenal paid around £25m in 2019 to land the Scotland International from Celtic and he has proven a popular figure with supporters.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out of the way, Tierney is in line to become Arsenal captain next season.

The player is now worth well more than the £25m Arsenal paid for Tierney and Nevin recalled he advised his former club Chelsea to make a move for the Scot.

“I tried to get Chelsea to buy him [Tierney] four years ago but they didn’t listen and ended up signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City for twice as much as Kieran would have cost them,” he said.

Nevin believes Tierney would have no problem fitting in at Real Madrid and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

“If Kieran did join Real Madrid then, I’m convinced he would have no problem fitting in there — he wouldn’t need time to settle or adjust.

“Personally, I think Manchester City would be the perfect club for him,” he said according to Metro.
