Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are looking for £15 million in transfer fees for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, with West Ham United, Southampton and Bournemouth interested in the Gunners midfielder, according to The Times.
The Times have reported that Bournemouth and Southampton are interested in signing Maitland-Niles from Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
The report has claimed that Arsenal are looking for £15 million for the midfielder, adding that the Gunners turned down an offer of £20 million from Wolverhampton Wanderers two years ago.
The Times reported last week that Arsenal Technical Director Edu is determined to get rid of the £52,000–a-week (Spotrac) England international, who can also operate as a full-back
With West Ham and Southampton among the clubs interested in the midfielder, it is really hard to see Arsenal not cash in on the 24-year-old.
Maitland-Niles has scored one goal and created five big chances in 87 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is not making use of the Englishman now, and it would make sense for the North London club to sell him before the summer transfer window closes next week.
