Arsenal receive a loan enquiry for Kieran Tierney

Amid Kieran Tierney’s struggle to secure regular playing time at the Emirates, Arsenal has received an inquiry from a club expressing interest in acquiring his signature.

Currently occupying the role of the second-choice left-back behind Oleksandr Zinchenko, Tierney has encountered challenges, even finding himself on the bench behind fellow defenders.

This situation marks a contrast to Tierney’s previous status as one of the standout performers in the league prior to the last season.

Tierney’s prospects of reclaiming his place within the Arsenal squad seem distant, and earlier in this transfer window, he attracted interest from Newcastle United and Celtic. Although these clubs displayed interest, their pursuit didn’t manifest as serious bids.

A new contender has now emerged in the form of Real Sociedad, as reported by The Sun. The Spanish side, having secured a berth in the Champions League last season, has reportedly expressed an inquiry about the possibility of bringing Tierney to their squad on loan.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tierney is falling further down the pecking order at the Emirates, which is a big surprise because we all think he is an impressive player.

However, we trust the judgement of Mikel Arteta. If the gaffer does not think he is good enough, we should support him because he knows the players more than we do.

  1. Absolutely not, we need the quality in depth to compete on all fronts.

    I would not sell either unless we got a great fee early in this window to replace with another fullback.

    We finally have depth, I would not risk it to loan Tierney.

  2. Tierney is a quality player, an old fashioned full-back, who loves overlapping down the wing and crossing. He has obviously found it hard to adjust to Arteta’s inverted role so rather that just letting him waste away on the bench, let him go on loan, have an outstanding season, double his transfer value and then with 2 years still left on his contract next season sell him on, it’s simple logic.

    1. Agreed. We have enough quality cover for leftback too. Timber, Tomiyasu & Kiwior. I remember Real Madrid was interested in Tierney a few seasons back & his value was like £50m back then. Hopefully he can recapture his form back.

  3. His treatment is harsh, it must be extremely difficult to motivate one’s self having gone through it all.

    1. There are winners and losers in football and KT falls in the latter at the moment. In a squad there are bound to be players who struggle to get minutes on the field and either do what Holding has done which is to gratefully accept his lot, or to request a transfer to get their career back on track. I don’t see KT’s treatment as harsh purely for those reasons

  4. I for one would want Tierney to stay. Defensively he is much more solid than Zinchenko and with the number of games Arsenal will be playing this season, Tierney will be vital to the Arsenal cause.
