Kieran Tierney to Depart Arsenal? Newcastle and Celtic Emerge as Suitors

Kiren Tierney

Amidst a flurry of activity, one player’s situation has become the focal point of speculation – Kieran Tierney.

The Scottish defender’s future at the club has been a rollercoaster of uncertainty, with reports now suggesting that Arsenal is eager to facilitate his departure.

Arsenal’s asking price for Tierney stands at £30 million. Observers have suggested that it might be too steep for potential suitors. This valuation has been a roadblock for clubs like Newcastle, who initially explored the possibility of signing him but found the price prohibitive.

Twist of Fate for Kieran Tierney: Potential Suitors

Kieran Tierney’s journey at Arsenal has been a rollercoaster ride this summer. Initially linked with a potential exit, Arteta’s public desire to retain the left-back seemed to change the course. However, recent reports indicate that Arsenal is now actively looking for a suitable move for Tierney before the transfer window slams shut.

Newcastle United has displayed longstanding interest in Kieran Tierney, with the intention to cover his wages as part of the deal. However, the emergence of Newcastle as a Champions League contender has complicated negotiations with other clubs. Arsenal remain determined to find a solution for Tierney’s departure in the upcoming weeks. Reports also suggest that either Tierney or Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella will make the switch to Tyneside.

Should Tierney leave Arsenal, his potential destinations are diverse. Sources have hinted at a possible return to Celtic, where Tierney enjoyed success and played 170 games. Consequently, former manager Brendan Rodgers is now at the helm. A reunion could be enticing for Tierney.

Arsenal’s Evolving Transfer Landscape

With the transfer window inching closer to its deadline, Arsenal is scrambling to complete their squad reshaping. Mikel Arteta has already secured key acquisitions, Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber.

The club is now focused on offloading players who might not feature prominently this season. Furthermore, names such as Thomas Partey, Nuno Tavares, and Nicolas Pepe could be on the brink of potential departures.

Folarin Balogun‘s future at Arsenal also hangs in the balance. His staggering £50 million price tag has attracted interest from West Ham and Monaco, with even Tottenham Hotspur considering a move. As Arsenal evaluates Balogun’s value and potential destinations, the club faces another critical decision in shaping its squad for the upcoming season.
