Arsenal Ainsley Maitland-Niles plan transfers U-turn after man of the match display


Arsenal could be ready to make a dramatic U-turn and keep Ainsley Maitland-Niles.Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has made it clear he wants to keep the 23-year-old whose form has been rewarded with a recall from England.

Wolves have sued Maitland-Niles, made an offer of £ 15million and want to return with a new offer that has left Arsenal fans in awe of his departure.

Maitland-Niles is still three years on his current contract, is not one of the club’s best winners, but his heroism could persuade the club to give him a new contract rather than having to move to another club.

Former England Under-21 midfielder Maitland-Niles started all three Arsenal games at Wembley and shone in the FA Cup semi-finals and final as well as the Community Shield.

It shows Arteta’s faith in Maitland-Niles and he wants to keep him rather than selling with Arsenal keen to balance the books this summer to bring new faces.

Arteta has gone public that Maitland-Niles is a part of his plans and he has now become a fan favorite.

It was a remarkable turn of fortune for Maitland-Niles who looked ready to go but fought back and showed his commitment to the club.

Maitland-Niles is now only focused on Arsenal, will ignore any transfer speeches and only focus on a place in the Emirates.

It was Maitland-Niles’ versatility – he can play in midfield and as a full-back – that wowed Arteta and must also have a say in Gareth Southgate calling him for England.

A graduate of the Maitland-Niles Academy, a member of the England team that won the Under-17 World Cup in 2017, made no secret that he wanted to be part of the new generation of youngsters from Arsenal with Bukayo Saka, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah. .

Maitland-Niles said: “I am an Arsenal player until I am told otherwise. My heart is in the club and while I’m here I’m going to give 100% all the time. So this is it.
