Maitland-Niles wants out

Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been vocal about his future in recent weeks.

The Englishman, in an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, spoke about his readiness to leave north London in order to find first-team football, saying:

“If it works out, it works out, if it doesn’t then kiss Arsenal goodbye. It’s been a long journey but a proud one at that. Maybe they still want to do something & things could change. If not, there’s always other teams”

He also demanded an answer from the Arsenal hierarchy, stating:

“I want a decision. I want some clarity.”

Maitland-Niles, now 23 years old, made his name at Arsenal playing at right-back, but impressed on loan at West Brom in the second half of last season, where he partnered fellow loanee Connor Gallagher in the centre of midfield.

However, his time in north London could now be over, with Arsenal having already signed Albert Sambi Lokonga, and rumoured to be looking at the addition of another midfielder this summer.

Three clubs chase Englishman’s signature

According to BBC Sport’s Simon Stone, three clubs are interested in signing Maitland-Niles, which could spark a bidding war for his services.

Leicester City, Southampton and Burnley are all allegedly interested in signing the Englishman, whose versatility undoubtedly earns him plenty of suitors.

As reported previously by the Daily Mail, Arsenal may be set to offer Maitland-Niles to Leicester as part of a player-plus-cash deal for creative midfielder James Maddison, although such claims remain just rumours at present.

Whether in a swap deal or for a transfer fee, it seems that Maitland-Niles will be heading away from The Emirates Stadium this summer.
