Arsenal star available for just £25m this summer amid Premier League interest

The Gunners could be set to lose one star on the cheap

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney could be available for as little as £25m this summer with the Gunners willing to let him depart at the end of the season, it has been reported.

The Scot, who joined the club in 2019, has fallen behind Oleksandr Zinchenko in the Arsenal pecking order, and the 25-year-old has started just four Premier League games so far this season, largely being used as a second-half substitute.

It has led to plenty of speculation that the former Celtic man could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium come the summer, with Newcastle and Manchester City both thought to be interested in acquiring his services should he become available.

And, as per the Northern Echo, the Magpies have made Tierney their no.1 transfer target this summer as they look to strengthen ahead of what looks likely to be a first season in Europe in two decades.

Current options Matt Targett and Dan Burn are both serviceable, but the pair could be improved upon, and it is reported that ‘the purchase of an attack-minded left-back will be a key priority this summer’, with the Arsenal man top of the list.

However, they will have to cough up a fee of around £25m for his services, with the Gunners keen not to make a loss on the player that they signed four years ago.

He will be allowed to leave, they add, as Mikel Arteta ‘will not stand in the defender’s way if he expresses a desire to leave this summer’.

Should Arsenal indeed allow him to depart, they will likely demand a fee well in excess of that quoted, with the defender still under contract until 2026 and in the prime of his career.
