ARSENAL star Kieran Tierney is tempted by a move to Newcastle if he can’t get more game-time this season, according to reports.

The left-back has fallen down the pecking order at the Gunners after Oleksandr Zinchenko took his place in the starting XI.

Tierney is reportedly unhappy at the club and Newcastle have been made aware of the situation, claims the Evening Standard.

Arsenal are yet to decide whether they want to sell the Scot.

However, if they offloaded him they would want to receive more than the £25million they paid Celtic for him in 2019.

Leicester were also keen on Tierney, who has three years remaining on his deal, but they instead signed Victor Kristiansen from FC Copenhagen.

Tierney has featured 26 times for Arsenal this season.

But only four of those appearances have been starts in the Premier League.

Former defender Mikael Silvestre has claimed the 25-year-old faces an “impossible task” when it comes to regaining his place in the team.

However, Tierney is expected to play in the Europa League with Arsenal up against Sporting Lisbon in the Round of 16 on Thursday.


Newcastle reportedly want to add another left-back to compete with Dan Burn and Matt Targett.

And it could be a busy summer transfer window ahead for the Toon after SunSport exclusively revealed that Eddie Howe is keen on Southampton’s Mohammed Salisu and Bristol City’s Alex Scott.
