Ajayi’s West Brom Leading Race To Sign Arsenal Defender Maitland-Niles

Ajayi’s West Brom Leading Race To Sign Arsenal Defender Maitland-Niles”

Maitland-Niles was part of the Gunners side that lifted the FA Cup and Community Shield previous year, with his performances at wing-back earning a call-up to Gareth Southgate's England squad.

Maitland-Niles is believed to see his global career as "hugely important" after making his senior debut in September. The player's biggest asset - his versatility - has also ended up being his bane, as he has not been able to prove his credentials for one position, where the more natural options have been considered.

And the report adds the King Power Stadium would be the versatile midfielder's preferred destination if he is to depart the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window closes on Monday.

The 23-year-old Maitland-Niles made five appearances for the Three Lions across this season's three global breaks to date, although he has only managed the same number of Premier League starts in 2020-21.

Injuries to Dennis Praet and Wilfred Ndidi and Hamza Choudhury potentially leaving could leave Brendan Rodgers' men light in midfield, and while Maitland-Niles is said to be an option the same outlet adds it is unclear if their pursuit is now active, with no talks having taken place between the clubs.

Arsenal will now turn their attention back to the Premier League when they take on Wolves on Tuesday.

In addition, Hamza Choudhury is being heavily linked with a move to Newcastle, thereby creating the need for the former Premier League champions to bolster their midfield. But a move to Leicester has been ruled out as the Gunners see Leicester as a direct rival.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is said to have reservations about dropping the 23-year-old into a relegation scrap while an unnamed top four club are also interested but must complete other deals first.
