Newcastle table £40 million bid for Arsenal’s Tierney

Kieran Tierney’s future at Arsenal is up in the air and Newcastle United are considering a £40 million bid for the Scotland international, according to reports.

The left-back has struggled for game time at the Emirates this season following the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City last summer.

According to CBS, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is undecided about the Scot’s future and a departure isn’t to be taken for granted.

However, Tierney might not be content with fighting for a starting spot as a squad player and could look elsewhere for more regular game time come the summer transfer window.

Arsenal will want to bring in more than the £25m they paid Celtic for the defender four years ago, and would start negotiations at £35-40m.

Newcastle are interested as they need to strengthen at left-back, while Monaco are also monitoring the situation, but rumours of a swap deal with Juventus for Manuel Locatelli are wide of the mark.

Tierney has a deal to June 2026 with Arsenal and is valued at €30m (£26m) by Transfermarkt.

The 35-time Scotland international has made 27 appearances in all competitions for Arteta’s side this season, but hasn’t started a Premier League match since Boxing Day.
