Arsenal receive enquiries from Premier League outfit for AMN

Crystal Palace are believed to be eyeing a move to sign Ainsley Maitland-Niles from Arsenal this summer.

The 23 year-old spent half a season on loan with West Bromwich Albion this season, where he enjoyed minutes in his favoured midfield role, although he wasn’t able to help them to avoid relegation.

It remains to be seen whether Mikel Arteta will be looking to bring him back into the Arsenal fold ahead of the new season, but with the Englishman likely to be eyeing a midfield role, I imagine it would be unlikely that he would re-enter into the manager’s plans ahead of the new campaign.

Crystal Palace are now claimed to be ‘closely monitoring’ the situation, having lodged an official enquiry into the possibility of signing him.

The Eagles are currently without a new manager after Roy Hodgson decided to call time with the club, although Steve Cooper has recently returned to the head of the betting to take over.

It’s unclear how much power the new boss will have on signings, but you would imagine that he would have somewhat of a say on incomings, and he may have other ideas which could well hamper this deal.

Does AMN deserve the chance to play in the Arsenal midfield next season?

    Keep as backup left backs for KT and for midfield when majority of our midfielders go to the African nations.

  6. Joseph says:

    ESR a back up for WILLOCK? What a joke.

  7. siamois says:

    AMN should leave to go to Palace a team that would suit him on many levels and Palace are now a well established PL club won win situation for him if he goes it will be with my blessings!

  8. siamois says:

    AMN has just said few days ago that he will have a serious chat with MA and if he is considered a big part of the team for next season then it will be time for him to leave Arsenal!he couldn’t have been any more clearer!

    1. siamois says:

      *and if he is not considered….

    2. Adajim says:

      He has ‘kissed his arsenal career goodbye’ with that interview, he will be gone this summer forget it. He was rash with his interview

      1. ozziegunner says:

        Adajim, it wasn’t an ultimatum to Arteta, he is just asking for clarification of his future career. In my view that is a mature approach, after being sent on loan.
        If he is prepared to accept the advice of all his managers, that his future lies at RB, I hope Arteta keeps him. After all he was good enough to make the England squad as a RB.

  9. Jawolusi Olusegun says:

    AMN should be used as part of the deal to take Zaha to the Emirate.

  10. jon fox says:

    No he does not! He does not have the required desire to be the player that his ability but not his heart could achieve.
