Kieran Tierney joined Arsenal from Celtic in 2019 in a £25m deal. The player born in 1997 has a very good ability to support the attack, he has been expected a lot since he arrived at the London team.
However, injury kept Kieran Tierney out of action repeatedly, he never proved to be the best at Arsenal. That led Mikel Arteta to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko for £32m last summer from City.
At the moment, the Ukraine international is the number one choice at Arsenal’s left-back position. That leaves Tierney with only 4 starts in the Premier League this season. At the age of 25, the Scottish player craves to start regularly, he is ready to leave Arsenal in the summer of 2023.
Coach Eddie Howe is keen to strengthen the defense, he wants Newcastle to sign Tierney from Arsenal. “Shoot” accepts to spend £ 30 million to buy players from the London team. According to ESPN, Tierney is ready to join Newcastle United this summer.
Tierney still wants to play in the Premier League. The defender’s first priority is to play regularly. And if Newcastle guarantee the Scottish player a starting position, they will most likely get what they need.
Coach Arteta certainly does not want to lose Tierney, he will create conditions for him to play more for the rest of the season. But if the defender is determined to leave in the summer of 2023, it is likely that Arteta will have to bring in a replacement.
