Newcastle United linked with a move for Arsenal defender

Newcastle United have an interest in Kieran Tierney, Football Insider reports, as the Magpies become one of the most competitive clubs in England.

Since being taken over by a Saudi consortium, Newcastle has been competing for the best talents around the country and Europe.

They beat Arsenal to sign Bruno Guimaraes and now could swoop for a key player at the Emirates.

The report claims Eddie Howe likes the former Celtic man who is struggling to play regularly, with Oleksandr Zinchenko being seen as the first-choice left-back at the Emirates.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tierney is a top player who always shows his class when he plays for us, making him one squad member we must keep.

However, Zinchenko is preferred by Mike Arteta and if the Ukrainian is fit, the Scotsman will struggle to play.

This could make him ask for a move and Newcastle is an ambitious side that fits him.

Moving to the Magpies will strengthen them as they become one of our challengers for a top-four spot, so we must be reluctant to send him to the North East.

Tierney should also want to stay, knowing that we are clearly entering a successful period in our existence.

  1. Show us £50 or more and we’ll think about it ,as we have Tomiyasu for cover there and others, plus we could benefit with the cash, just accept that Tierney isn’t playing nowere near as good as he was and don’t think he will again but it’s not my decision just my oppion.

    1. Bit premature to suggest Tierney isn’t playing as well as before, because he rarely gets the chance to play.

      Aside from his goal Zinchenko had a sub par performance, and was poor in several games before that.

      Zinchenko’s strength is the final third, and he’s a poor defender.

      Tierney is by far the better defender, has more pace, and adds a dynamic to our attack when he overlaps on the left.

      Trossard was minimal yesterday, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that LW struggles with Zinchenko at LB.

      Rather see Zinchenko swap with Xhaka for a run of games as Xhaka looks tired and his form dropped recently.

      For example, Martinelli got an assist and goal yesterday, glad to see him playing with confidence again.

      More game time for Tierney helps the club and makes us less predictable in the attack. Let’s not forget how good he can be when he gets a run of games.

    2. A mere fifty pounds? No , not even for fifty million and in any case, you don’t speak for our club. We will definitely be keeping Tierney.

    3. If Chelsea can spend 65m on average rate Cucurella, spending 70m on unknown player Fofana and you want us to sell Tierney 50m? in this market rate window?, they should bring 80m with their number 4, then we talk of business or else no deal!!!!!!!!!

  2. We must keep Tierney. Oleksandr Zinchenko will not always be available. And when he is not, we will need the quality of Tierney to step in.
    Moreover, I think the resumption of Europa League football for Arsenal should provide more playing time for him

  3. I will sell zinchecko instead.

    He is a poor defender + he is over confidence and selfish with the ball. He hardly give passes to our left wingers. Arteta should either play him in the middle of drop him to the bench.

    1. Zini is kye to our success. He drift to midfield and allows us to dominate games, with four midfielders vs. three. That’s Arteta’s game plane. Tierney can’t do that. In terms of game plane, poor defending by Zini is acceptable price to pay, and Guardiola was willing to pay it for several years. As long as we have some good CB’s it’s manageable.

  4. I would say sell ,he’s Healthy this season so there wouldn’t be a better time .
    We have the new lad and Tomi who can also play there ,if newcastle offer good money it would be good for all parties.

  5. A lot of clubs are aware of Tierneys situation, and are definitely interested. But if Arsenal do have ambitions in the future as well then we need two quality player in each position and that’s why Tierney should not be sold unless Arsenal are offered money far over the price.

  6. Man City sold us Jesus and bought Haaland. Then they sold us Zinchenko.

    Suddenly, we’re above them in the table. Is it a coincidence?

    If Tierney is to be sold (and I’d be as surprised as anyone – in fact I’ve been surprised that he’s played so little this season)… then it really should *not* be to a club that is set to become a major rival.

    Newcastle are the new City/Chelsea. Give them nothing.
