Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney is reportedly open to joining Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United.
The Chronicle have reported that Newcastle United are interested in signing Kieran Tierney from Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
The report has claimed that Newcastle are confident of getting a deal done for Arsenal and Scotland international left-back Tierney.
The report has claimed that the £110,000-a-week (SalarySport) defender finds the prospect of moving to up north and playing for Newcastle appealing.

Could Newcastle United sign Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney?
In our view, Newcastle United could be able to sign Kieran Tierney from Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
There is no smoke without fire.
If the Magpies are confident about signing Tierney, then they must have got some real concrete indications that he is open to playing for Eddie Howe’s side.
The Chronicle have reported that Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe personally wants Tierney and rates him highly.
This suggests that the former Celtic star is very likely to get more playing time at Newcastle than he would at Arsenal.
Oleksandr Zinchenko is the first-choice left-back at Arsenal at the moment, and it is hard to see manager Mikel Arteta pick Tierney ahead of the Ukraine international anytime soon.
