Per a report from The Telegraph, Newcastle United will target Arsenal full back Kieran Tierney in the summer. The former Celtic star has fallen out of the starting XI at the Gunners with Oleksandr Zinchenko currently ahead of him in Mikel Arteta’s selection plans.

It is claimed that Newcastle will have to bid over £30 million in order for the North London club to sanction the Scotland international’s transfer. Tierney left Celtic in 2019 for £25 million and could be in for a further pay day if that move does go ahead with reports at the time of his Parkhead departure claiming the two clubs agreed a 15 percent sell on clause in the deal.

Leeds United have active interest in Rangers star

According to Football Insider, Leeds United have registered their interest in Rangers star Ryan Kent ahead of the summer. The former Liverpool man is out of contract at the end of the current season and is free to discuss a future move at this present time.

The report claims that the Premier League club have been in contact with Kent’s camp but that EFL Championship side Burnley are also interested. If true, Kent may bide his time with Leeds currently fighting relegation from the English top flight and the Clarets leading the second tier and on course for promotion.
