Tierney set to leave Arsenal?

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney appears keen on leaving the club this summer amid his reduced playing time.

The Scotland international was once regarded as the best player in the squad, but he has lost his way over the past year.

Tierney is currently the back-up left-back behind Oleksandr Zinchenko and he has hardly played in the league recently.

This has obviously led to frustration within his camp and cite that he could leave the club this summer.

Tierney won't be short of offers from top European clubs, but he could end up staying in the Premier League next term.

Newcastle United have been keeping a close eye on him and they could be prepared to make a formal approach soon.

The Magpies could be willing to pay £30 million for the former Celtic man, who has made 113 appearances for Arsenal.

Aside from Tierney, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Nuno Tavares are likely to be sold by the club.
