Former Chelsea star turned pundit, Joe Cole has urged Newcastle United to move for established Premier League stars like Kieran Tierney.
The Scottish left-back has been one of the finest Arsenal signings in recent seasons, but he has fitness problems.
The Gunners signed Nuno Tavares as a backup to him in the summer and Mikel Arteta has enjoyed using the Portuguese youngster in recent weeks.
Tierney is a better option, but Tavares is improving all the time and Cole believes Tierney could help to save Newcastle from relegation.
He urges them to sign him alongside the likes of Jesse Lingard.
‘Jesse Lingard, I think, would be a great signing for someone,’ Cole said via The Daily Mail.
‘I’m sure he’s come across Newcastle’s radar. They’ll have the financial power to go and buy him. Kieran Tierney as well, is another who is out of the team at Arsenal, I think would be fantastic.
‘I think he’s ideal for Newcastle, fits right in and he needs a new challenge. I don’t know why he’s not playing regularly at Arsenal recently.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Tierney is the best left-back at Arsenal and it is great to see Tavares perform so well for the club when he is unavailable.
However, the club cannot sell the former Celtic man so soon.
The best clubs, like Liverpool and Manchester City, have two accomplished players in each position.
Arsenal isn’t there yet, but we should aim for that and that means we cannot lose Tierney.
