Arsenal are reportedly desperate to sell midfielder Ainsley Maitland Niles. The midfielder is also ready to leave the club this summer.
Everton and Wolves have been linked with the midfielder. However, nobody has made a bid for the midfielder in the summer transfer window.
THE FAILURE OF AINSLEY MAITLAND NILES AT ARSENAL
Ainsley Maitland Niles does not have a future at Arsenal. The best solution for all the parties is to find a deal that is beneficial to all. There is no point in him staying here and operating as a fullback. This is because Maitland Niles prefers to play as a midfielder. Many experts have also said that the midfielder is of Premier League quality.
Hence, a move to another Premier League club makes sense. Last summer also the midfielder wanted to leave the Gunners. However, Mikel Arteta did not allow him to leave the club. The midfielder had already agreed on personal terms with Everton. However, Arsenal refused to entertain any bids for the midfielder. Although, he spent the second half of last season on loan with AS Roma.
EDU GASPAR IS ALSO DESPERATE TO SELL HIM THIS WINDOW
According to reports, Arsenal technical director Edu Gaspar is determined to sell the midfielder this window. Ainsley Maitland Niles has only one year left on his contract. The Gunners reportedly made a mistake of rejecting a 15 million bid from the midfielder for Wolves last summer. However, this summer reportedly Everton and Wolves are both interested again in the midfielder.
There are also reports suggesting that the Gunners will accept a loan with a buy option bid for the midfielder. However, the buying option must guarantee his sale next summer. His sale will also allow Arsenal to buy a new midfielder. It will also make a squad place for the new signings. Mikel Arteta is going to focus more on selling players rather than signing players.
Maitland Niles has made 87 appearances in the Premier League. He has scored 1 goal and created 5 big chances in his Premier League career. A number of clubs from Germany are also interested in his services. However, the midfielder prefers a move to the Premier League.
