Stan Collymore has said Newcastle United should sign Eddie Howe’s Kieran Tierney from Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
The former Liverpool and Aston Villa striker wrote in CaughtOffSide that Tierney would thrive under Howe at Newcastle.
The pundit believes the Scotland international’s left-back is stagnating at Arsenal.
Tierney has actually been linked with a move from Arsenal to Newcastle in the summer transfer window.
The Athletic reported in March that the Magpies were looking to sign Tierney in the summer transfer window and see him as an ideal signing.
Kieran Tierney urged to move from Arsenal to Newcastle
Collymore wrote: “I really like Kieran Tierney. When he first joined Arsenal from Celtic, many comparisons were drawn between him and Liverpool’s Andy Robertson.
“Robertson has obviously developed and grown into a true world-class left-back and Tierney has been somewhat stagnant due to injuries and fitness issues. However, I think that at the age of 25 and with Howe’s exceptional individual coaching methods, the Scot still has plenty of time to celebrate the same success as Liverpool’s number 26.
“If Newcastle have the cash to sign quality players in the summer there is absolutely no reason why they shouldn’t go out and get Tierney. He would be a really good player for them – he would offer a very good balance, he loves to go forward but he’s also solid defensively.”
HITC ruling: Tierney should consider summer transfer
In our view, Kieran Tierney should seriously consider leaving Arsenal for Newcastle United in the summer transfer window.
The former Celtic star isn’t Arsenal’s first-choice left-back right now and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.
Newcastle are a rising club and could play in the UEFA Champions League next season.
The Magpies have a great project and Tierney would be playing for a very ambitious club if he were to join St James’ Park in the summer window.
