Arsenal tell Newcastle how much it will cost them to land England man

Arsenal has told Newcastle United that they will need to stump up £25 million if they are serious about signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to the Sun.

The Magpies have become the latest team to show interest in the 23-year-old after Arsenal made him available for transfer.

He made his breakthrough from the Arsenal academy in the 2014/2015 season and he has gone on to make over 100 appearances for the Gunners.

He has been in fine form lately and he won the Man of the Match award for his performance against Liverpool in the Community Shield on Saturday.

His fine showing in that game also earned him a place in the senior England national team.

Mikel Arteta seems to like him as he has played him in some big games, but the Gunners have other transfer targets like Thomas Partey and selling Maitland-Niles will help them raise some cash.

Wolves are the other Premier League side that wants the Englishman, but their bid of around £15 million has been rejected by Arsenal recently.

The Gunners know he is valuable and they are holding out for their £25 million valuation of him.

If the Gunners don’t get as much money as they want, he might remain at the Emirates this season.

    Better he remains than being sold… That is a fine asset we want to throwaway I hope we don’t come back to regret it like Gnabry

    Few minutes ago, my son just asked me if Tottenham also is a premier league club. I answered yes it’s the only big club in the world with an empty trophy cabinet.

    Wolves have just lost their starting RB, looks like they’ll be overspending on one of ours then 😉

    Why sell the lad? Sell Torreira or Guendouzi instead.

      Why would we sell a young talented player who has just been called up to the full England squad because of his recent performances?Yes you are correct,it does not make sense.Why do we keep on digging up articles from low quality Tabloids which are figments of someone’s imagination.No more on this subject, please.

      1. Admin Pat says:

        Apologies Grandad. Is there any other players you want us to ignore in future?

        Just give me the word…..

    I still wonder why we still say there are 6big clubs in England!!! I only know Liverpool, Man.City, Man.U, Arsenal and Chelsea, I guess Leicester is the 6th… It would have been Totten but it will cause more ham than good…

    Arsenal should please, get Coutinho in

    Rather sell Sokratis and Mustafi on the cheap to raise the £25 million. Or sell Torreria at reduced price to raise that money.
    I feel selling AMN for £25 million in short term will hurt us big time in the long term.

  8. Kev82 says:

    He shouldn’t be sold at all not even 30 million, he’s powerful, athletic, he has pace and extremely versatile.. it would be a huge mistake to cash in on him. Get rid of the deadwood not one of our very own up and coming stars!

    It’s the headline of the article that is wrong.

    It should read “According to the Sun, Arsenal have, reportedly, told Newcastle the price they need to pay for AMN.”

    Then, of course, we would know it’s just another unsubstantiated piece of media BS.

    Why don’t we just listen to Arteta and the player?
    Both are saying how happy they are with the current positive situation – the official Arsenal site is so much more reliable than the media.

    £25mil for 23yr old utility player is like a give away. People should be careful of what they wish for. Thomas Partey might take a long time to adjust to EPL
