Tierney now ‘top target’ for Newcastle

Kieran Tierney is now Newcastle United’s ‘top left-back target’ after previous interest in Antonee Robinson ended following his decision to sign a new deal with Fulham. According to Football Insider, the Magpies are now weighing up a move for the Arsenal star, whose future at the Emirates currently remains uncertain.

The 26-year-old is due to sit down with Arteta and discuss his options, which could pave the way for Eddie Howe to swoop in, if the boss decides to green light his exit. Tierney still has three years left on his current deal with Arsenal but last season was a mixed bag for him as he made mainly cameo appearances off the bench and will surely be looking for more regular playing time next season.

Arsenal quoted £15m extra to sign defender

The Gunners have pretty heavy interest in Jeremie Frimpong but a recent update has thrown a curveball in their direction after the player brought in new agents. Appearing on an episode of Born and Red, Fabrizio Romano has suggested that the versatile defender is likely going to cost more money now as he prioritises a move to the Premier League.

“From what I’m hearing, this is an expensive player this summer because I’m told that Bayer Leverkusen could start negotiations only from £35m. There was a big opportunity in January as they were happy with £20m-£25m, now it’s around £35m, so it’s way more expensive,” he said (h/t The Boot Room).
