From every indications, Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles is yet to decide whether to remain at the Emirates Stadium or not for the new season.

This is after The Telegraph claims he will use his England opportunity to decide over his future as Wolves have returned with a new bid, after failing to convince the Gunners in August.

However, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has his eyes on a move but not desperate about it as his only concern is the playing time that will be available to him.

Although Ainsley Maitland-Niles started in Arsenal’s opener against Fulham but it is believed that it might not repeat itself, if the number of defensive players who are injured return.

With Wolves ready to guarantee him of regular playing time in place of Matt Doherty who is now with North London club Tottenham, Mikel Arteta must be ready to do the same to be able to keep the 22-year-old at the club for his new project.

There is no doubt that Ainsley Maitland-Niles is in the plans of the Spanish manager, especially after seeing him impress but what has not been assured is his place in the team for regular playing time at the for the new season.
