Arsenal will demand £30 million for Kieran Tierney

Kieran Tierney is reportedly expected to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, with the Gunners demanding £30 million for him.

A report from Football Insider claims that Newcastle United are keen on signing Kieran Tierney at the end of the season. And Arsenal could sell the 25-year-old left-back for a fee of around £30 million.

The Scottish international has fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, and he needs to leave in search of regular game time. A move to Newcastle United could be ideal for the player. And the Magpies certainly have the financial resources to pay the reported £30 million asking price as well.

The Scottish defender has started just four times in the league and needs to play more often in develop as a footballer and fulfil his potential. The former Celtic defender has the potential to develop into one of the best full-backs in England. And a move to Newcastle could give him the platform he deserves.

He is still quite young and he will have plenty of resale value. Therefore the reported £30 million asking price could seem reasonable for a club like Newcastle United. And the Magpies are in a solid spot amid Arsenal’s openness to sell Tierney.

The Magpies are pushing for UEFA Champions League qualification. And if they manage to finish in the top four, they could be an attractive destination for players like Tierney who are determined to prove themselves at a high level.

Meanwhile, Newcastle will need better players to compete in the Champions League as well. And Tierney would certainly be an upgrade on Dan Burn as the club’s left-back. While Burn is a reliable defender, he is more suited to a central role and he does not offer a lot going forward. Tierney was outstanding for Celtic going forward and could add a new dimension to the Newcastle attack.

Eddie Howe has done well to nurture players throughout his managerial career. And he could bring out the best in the Scotland international. The 25-year-old is already well-settled in England and should be able to make an immediate impact at Newcastle next season. Signing the Arsenal defender could prove to be a bargain in the long run.
