Wolves and Newcastle keen on Maitland Niles, Everton considering a move

Wolves and Newcastle are keen on signing Ainsley Maitland Niles this summer while Everton are also considering a move for the 22 year old, according to the BBC.

Maitland Niles is an Arsenal academy graduate and has made 100 appearances for the club since making his debut for the first team in 2014. He made 32 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season.

The Englishman did not feature too much in the second half of the campaign but regained head coach Mikel Arteta’s confidence and started in both the semi final and final of the FA Cup as Arsenal won the competition for a record fourteenth time.

Despite his strong end to the season, Arsenal have told the England Under 21 international that they will listen to offers for him this summer as they look to rebuild under Arteta. It is thought that the North London club would be open to accepting offers in excess of £20 million.

The 22 year old is a midfielder but has excelled at right back as well as right wing back. On occasion, he has even played at left wing back for Arsenal. His versatility is one of his strongest assets. Maitland Niles joined the Arsenal academy at the age of six and has three years remaining on his contract.
