Newcastle United are plotting a move for Arsenal full-back Kieran Tierney, who could cost in excess of £30 million (€33 million) if the latter are willing to agree to his departure this summer, the Telegraph says. Eddie Howe is understood to be a long-term admirer of the 25-year-old, who joined Arsenal from Celtic for £25 million in the summer of 2019.

In more Gunners gossip, the Daily Mail writes that the club are in talks with Saturday’s match-winning hero Reiss Nelson over a new contract. The 23-year-old winger’s future is uncertain with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Also carrying Arsenal rumours is the Daily Mirror which reports the club is leading the race to sign Napoli’s Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen. However the 24-year-old is also being targeted by Manchester United.

And according to The Sun (via Mundo Deportivo), Manchester City star Aymeric Laporte reportedly wants to leave the club for Barcelona. But the 28-year-old centre-back could face a challenge to play for the Spanish giants with the club unable to register new players.
