Leeds United in Arsenal for two stars

Leeds United are reportedly interested in the signature of two Arsenal stars as they seek to equip their team ahead of next season’s challenge.

The first player Leeds United have shown interest in is Ainsley Maitland-Niles as he is reportedly on the exit list of the club. He has been told he is no longer needed by the North London outfit which makes them join the list of those interested.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is already attracting interest from several clubs because of his prospect and the quality he has to play in a number of roles including the midfield and the right back.

Arsenal academy prospect Sam Greenwood is the other player who is attracting interest from Leeds United. They are believed to be willing to pay six figures for his signature.

The centre-forward joined the Gunners from Sunderland in 2018 and scored three goals for the U-18 team last season before the coronavirus pandemic.

There is no doubt that he has not impressed with the Arsenal academy team and that could force the club into considering to cash in on him as long as the right offer is threatened.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will keep most of their academy players at the club as the new structure in the club gives room to youth players in the first-team.
