Kieran Tierney sends message to Arsenal fans amid transfer speculation
| Last updated
Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney has sent a 'message' to Gunners supporters amid reports linking him with a summer move away from the Emirates Stadium.
This season, however, the Scotland international has been available throughout the campaign, but has largely been second choice behind Oleksandr Zinchenko when the former Manchester City star has been available.
Zinchenko has operated in an inverted full-back role that sees him drift into midfield, and manager Mikel Arteta has attempted to convert Tierney into playing a similar role.
It is claimed that the Magpies scouted Tierney prior to their big-money takeover in 2021.
Tierney leaving Arsenal?
He came off the bench for an 11-minute cameo in what could be his final appearance in an Arsenal shirt.
Tierney's last Arsenal-related Instagram post was 73 weeks ago, with his latest photo potentially ending up as a goodbye message to the Gunners faithful if he does depart.
That scenario had previously been fuelled by Arteta's recent team selections, with the Gunners boss selecting Jakub Kiwior at left-back ahead of the Scot for their 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest earlier this month.
Kiwior continued in the role during Zinchenko's continued absence for the win over Wolves on Sunday, scoring a goal before Tierney took his place with 11 minutes on the clock.
If the left-back does join Newcastle or another club, it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will jump into the transfer market or utilise Kiwior in his role going forward.
