Have Newcastle given up on chasing Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney?

Newcastle United has set its sights on bolstering its defensive ranks for the upcoming season, and the Daily Record is suggesting that they are considering Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters as an alternative to Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney.

With limited playing time at Arsenal last season, the 26-year-old Scot seemed destined to join the Magpies’ revolution. However, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is exploring alternative targets to provide competition for hometown hero Dan Burn.

Although Howe remains an admirer of former Celtic star Tierney, Newcastle is exploring all available options in their quest for new defensive signings and will not pay over the odds or sign a player that is not overly keen on joining them.

While the future of Tierney at Arsenal remains uncertain, his prominence in promotional activities suggests that he may still play a significant role in the club’s plans.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It is starting to look more probable that Tierney will be at Arsenal next season and that is not a bad thing, especially when you consider the amount of games the Gunners are expected to play next season.

Squad depth is an absolute necessity if we want to be competitive next season and keeping Tierney does just that, create squad depth.

  1. So much has been written about who will stay or go and part of me thinks that just because Tierney’s season was more as a bit part player it doesn’t alter the fact that there is a requirement to have more depth and a combination of skill sets for next season.

    I’m presuming (hoping) that plans are afoot to move certain players on and that those who are earmarked to stay get to play a worthwhile role. I’d like to think that Tierney and ESR are in that category

    1. I agree completely Sue. In fact you will see my article about that today… (along with Jon’s… which I keep replacing with news about Rice lol)

      1. Pat My post about you not so far using my piece was not a moan in ANY way. Keep it til whenever there is proper space, as that suits me fine.
        I fully understand and like reading the many pieces on Rice even though, as I have done throughout life, I USE REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY in my posts.
        Curses, I have NOW stupidly let the cat out of the bag. But we both know you can read me like a book and I claim the reverse is also true.

  2. Legend has it that defense win games, now my take is its better to move on an attacking player than a solid defensive player as Tierney.

  3. Looking at it from a Newcastle viewpoint Walker-Peters and Tierney are similar players. If they can get a better deal for the Southampton man then it probably makes sense to go for him. It’s not like the Declan Rice scenario where there isn’t really anyone else in the same league as Rice.

  4. Newcastle have a very limited budget. They are interested in Tierney but it may be after they have completed other deals. FFP is a problem for Newcastle. Their priorwill change as the window goes on.
