Kieran Tierney is confident that he will be fit for Arsenal before the start of the 2022/23 season.
The Scottish has been out of action since April with a knee injury but reports from The Sun indicates that he is making steady progress with his rehab and should be back in action in a month’s time.
The player is expected to return to light training at the end of the month but will need some weeks again before being considered match-fit with his club set to travel to Germany for a friendly against second-tier side FC Nurnberg at the Max-Morlock Stadium in the coming month.
Arteta hopes Tierney will be available to play his first game since March 29, when he starred for Steve Clarke’s Scots in a 2-2 friendly draw in Austria.
Arsenal also go Stateside for their pre-season build-up with games against Everton in Baltimore plus two in Orlando against Orlando City and Chelsea and host Spanish side Sevilla at The Emirates on July 30.
