Wolves create more competition Maitland-Niles signature


Wolves are the latest team to have indicated an interest in the signature of Arsenal youngster, Ainsley Maitland-Niles this summer transfer window.

Arsenal are reported to have told the star player that he will not be at the club in the coming season and will be available in the transfer market but for the right price.

This has made a number of Premier League clubs to make their interest known in the utility player with Wolves being the lastest club to have made an inquiry.

It is reported that North London rivals, Tottenham are also keen on the signature of Ainsley Maitland-Niles and will make an ambitious bid to be able to test the Gunners.

With Kyle Walker-Peters leaving Tottenham to Southampton, there is a need to have him replaced and the club have identified Ainsley Maitland-Niles as the best fit since he has been declared to be available in the market.

Reports claim that the Gunners are willing to let go of Ainsley Maitland-Niles for a fee of £20 million and the North London outfit are willing to meet that valuation as they rate the 22-year-old for having the ability to play in a number of positions, including the midfield.
