Kieran Tierney open to Arsenal exit

Arsenal full-back Kieran Tierney is open to a move away from the club amidst interest from Newcastle United.

According to a report by Mirror, lack of game time has frustrated Kieran Tierney and he is all set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season. The 25-year-old full-back is no longer a first-team regular, he has fallen down the pecking order in the ongoing season.

Mikel Arteta signed Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City before the start of the season. His arrival has had an impact on Tierney’s game time at the club. Despite returning from injury he has often found himself on the bench.

He is believed to be frustrated by the lack of minutes on the pitch. And, he is looking for a move elsewhere. Meanwhile, Arteta has done a wonderful job at the London-based club. He has transformed the club into a winning team. The Gunners are at the top of the Premier League and they are all set for Champions League football next season.

Tierney joined Arsenal back in the summer of 2019 from Celtic. Ever since his arrival, he has gone from strength to strength. The Scottish international has featured in over 100 matches for the club and has been involved in 18 goals.

However, things haven’t been that great for the 25-year-old. He has suffered because of injuries and now finds himself on the bench majority of the time. In the ongoing season, he has featured in 25 matches. But has only been involved in 1,142 minutes.

His contract with the Gunners will end in the summer of 2026. However, it looks like he might leave the team ahead of next season. The former Celtic player wants more game time and his only option looks like a move away from the club.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United are interested in the 25-year-old full-back. The Magpies are fighting it out for a Champions League spot in the ongoing season. Eddie Howe has assembled a decent squad and will push for the title next season. But, for Newcastle to take the next step, a few more additions are needed. And, Tierney’s arrival will surely help their cause. However, it will be interesting to see if they can manage to strike a deal with the London-based club.
