Kieran Tierney has been an Arsenal outcast since his move from Celtic in 2019, and the Scottish international is now reportedly being tempted by a move to Newcastle United if he can’t get more game-time at the title-chasing Gunners.
The 23-year-old left-back has been limited to just 11 Premier League appearances this season, with the majority of those coming off the bench. He has been unable to break into the starting XI due to the form of Bukayo Saka and the return of Sead Kolasinac from injury.
This has led to speculation that Tierney could be tempted by a move away from the Emirates Stadium in the summer, with Newcastle United reportedly interested in signing him. The Magpies are in the midst of a relegation battle and are desperate for reinforcements in the full-back positions.
Tierney has been a regular for Scotland, making 11 appearances for his country since his move to Arsenal. He has also been a regular in the Europa League, making seven appearances in the competition this season.
The defender has been a popular figure at Arsenal since his arrival, with fans appreciating his commitment and hard work. He has also been praised for his defensive ability, with his tackling and positioning often proving to be a key asset for the Gunners.
However, with Arsenal pushing for a top-four finish and a place in the Champions League, Tierney may find himself on the fringes of the squad if he can’t get more game-time. This could lead to him being tempted by a move to Newcastle United, who are in desperate need of reinforcements in the full-back positions.
It remains to be seen whether Tierney will stay at Arsenal or move to Newcastle United in the summer, but one thing is for sure – the Scottish international will be hoping to get more game-time at the Emirates Stadium in the coming months.
