Arsenal's Star Is Set To Leave The Club And Join Premier League Rivals

As he battles to get playing time under Mikel Arteta, Kieran Tierney, an Arsenal star, is allegedly thinking about leaving the team.

Only four of the Scottish international's 16 Premier League games this season have been as starters since Oleksandr Zinchenko is considered to be the best left-back option.

Tierney is aware that other Premier League teams are keeping tabs on his status, with Newcastle reportedly showing interest in the defender, according to talkSPORT.

The 25-year-old, who joined the Arsenal in 2019, might fetch roughly £30 million from Eddie Howe's team.

If the Magpies continue to develop as fellow top-four Premier League contenders, the Arsenal could be reluctant to transfer him to them.

Given that Jakub Kiwior, who joined in January, and Takehiro Tomiyasu are already serving as backups, Arteta might not be opposed to his departure.

In light of Arsenal's pursuit of Ivan Fresneda, reports from earlier in the year suggested that Tierney may depart the club in the summer. 

He could get more playing time this season because of their Europa League involvement, but it might not be enough to persuade him to stay.
