Wolves interested in Ainsley Maitland Niles

Wolves are the latest club to show an interest in signing Ainsley Maitland Niles, according to Sky Sports.

It was reported yesterday that Tottenham Hotspur were preparing a 20 million bid for the player but Spurs have indicated that they are not interested in signing Maitland Niles.

Arsenal will listen to offers for the Englishman and be open to selling him if they receive a bid in excess of 20 million. The North London club are aware of their need to raise funds for incomings this summer. 

The 22 year old is an Arsenal academy graduate and has made 100 appearances for the Gunners. This season, he made 33 appearances in all competitions. He did not feature too much in the second half of the 2019/20 season but gained head coach Mikel Arteta’s trust towards the end of the campaign and started both the semi final as well as the final of the FA Cup as the Gunners won the competition for a record fourteenth time. 

Newcastle are keeping tabs on Maitland Niles and could make a move for the player in the coming months. He is a central midfielder but can also play at right back or right wing back. He has even been played at left wing back by Arteta on occasion. His versatility is one of his biggest strengths. 

Mikel Arteta and Maitland Niles hinted that he was a part of Arsenal’s future but it looks like he could be playing his football elsewhere next season.
