Arsenal's transfer plans have suffered a blow just days into the summer window which opened the same day the European Championships kicked off. The Gunners were widely reported to be keen on selling left-back Kieran Tierney to raise funds however, the 27-year-old looks to have suffered an unfortunate and potentially serious hamstring injury.

He was stretchered off an hour into Scotland’s group stage clash with Switzerland, clearly in distress having hyper-extended his knee, after grabbing his hamstring.

It is his third muscle injury in the last 12 months, with the previous two forcing him to miss a combined total of 19 games. But the Scotsman’s poor luck with injury goes further back: he has regularly been sidelined for medical reasons and missed almost 100 days after knee surgery in 2022.
