Journalist says Newcastle is sure they can land Arsenal man

According to journalist Dean Jones, Newcastle United is showing serious interest in signing Kieran Tierney from Arsenal and is confident of completing the transfer in the current window.

Tierney has faced challenges in getting regular playing time at Arsenal over the past year, particularly with the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko in the previous summer transfer window. Zinchenko has become a preferred choice for manager Mikel Arteta and is expected to continue in that role next season.

Given the circumstances, it appears to be in Tierney’s best interest to seek a new club, and Newcastle is reportedly eager to bring him on board.

It remains uncertain whether Arsenal is willing to part ways with Tierney, considering the need for squad depth. However, Newcastle is optimistic about their chances of securing the services of the former Celtic player, as per Jones’ claims.

He tells Give Me Sport:

“I think that they’re confident that the competition isn’t too fierce. They’ve definitely got competitors for him, but I think they’ll be looking to get this one done as soon as they can, just so they know they can focus on other areas.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tierney deserves to play and we can understand his frustration as he stays on the bench.

We probably should allow him to leave if he asks to take the chance at Newcastle United.

But we cannot trust Nuno Tavares to be our backup option, which means we must sign a replacement if Tierney is sold.

  1. If Tierney is allowed to leave for Newcastle United (one of our main competitors for top 4 next season) for anything less than 50M, then we should demand that anyone greenlighting this deal should be asked to leave with him. Period.

    1. I agree with u. We should not be selling our players on the cheap anymore. Look at west ham demands for a player with a year left on his contract, whose value should be around 50 to 70m with a year to go on his transfer.
      Arsenal should table only amount within that range for Rice take or leave. Our priority should be getting caicedo in asap n with Rice prioritise only going to asernal it will force them to lower their valuation.
      If they are desperate for Smith rowesny thing less than 50m should not be entertain. Arsenal need to be ruthless in our transfers dealings henceforth.

  2. Some of the names I have seen mentioned to replace Keiran Tierney have been definite downgrades.
    Arsenal and Mikel Arteta should be looking to retain the best players and upgrading in deficient areas.
    Arsenal’s defense is a deficient area, which requires strengthening. Losing Teirney is a downgrade, given the alternatives mentioned. Why does Howe see what Arteta doesn’t?

  3. Shift him to the midfield to replace Xaka, Z is unfit to play as a attacking LB. As a slow runner, he can never run back in time to fullfill his defending duties.


    Z as LB has lost more goals than he created. Without Saliba covering the vacant spaces together with Gabriel we lost 17 goals in the remaining 9 games,comparing we lost 25 goals in 27 prior games.

  4. I would always want Tierney to stay for a number of reasons. He is a proper Gunner to the core, a very good defender and can bomb forward as and when required. He could be very useful in a back 4 or back 3 as he has got a very good defensive mindset. However, if he leaves, I hope Arsenal have got a viable alternative lined up.

  5. As much as I like KT,why would you keep a player that barely plays especially KT who would fetch a pretty good fee.that money would then be used to buy a LB who is familiar/good as an inverted full-back and there might be some money left to invest somewhere else.lastly,KT as earned the right to decide his next move,he has been a model professional.
