Everton want Arsenal man and will make a move for him in January

Everton remains strongly interested in a move for Ainsley Maitland-Niles and the Toffees will make another move for him in the winter transfer window.

They wanted to sign him in the last transfer window, but Arsenal refused to allow him to join them on loan.

The Englishman was told he was a part of the club’s plan and stayed on for at least another campaign.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom where he played as a midfielder.

He could secure another January move to Everton, according to Transfermarketweb.

The report claims that the Toffees remain keen to add him to their squad, although he wouldn’t be joining them as a midfielder.

They see him as the ideal replacement for Seamus Coleman at right-back and Rafa Benitez is confident the England international suits his game.

At Arsenal, Maitland-Niles faces competition from the likes of Albert Sambi Lokonga, Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka for a starting spot in midfield.

The club has also strengthened their full-back spot and this could see him struggle to play regularly in this campaign.

A move to Everton increases his chance of regular first-team football, but it remains unclear if Arsenal will sanction a winter transfer for him.

  1. Arteta Knows Best! The magician has a ace up his sleeve. One game at a time, onward and upward we move. Five points off the league leaders, 32 games to go. There is One Mikel Arteta!!
    If the boss deems AMN surplus who are we to question? After all no one misses Ozil or Mustafi, so no one will miss AMN if the transfer does happen. Someone better will get an opertunity to work with Mikel.

    1. Speaking of Everton, no one misses Walcott or Iwobi either and both have effectively disappeared without trace. Both were way below top class and Walcott was bone idle into the bargain as Everton too have found, so let him go to SAINTS where he cannot even make their team.

      Some realists among us were saying loud and long that both these poor players needed to go far sooner than both did, esp Walcott! A decade sooner in Walcotts case!

      AMN will never be more than a distinctly average Prem squad player and we will be well advised to get any half decent fee we can get for him and to do it ASAP.

  2. If he is told to play RB at Everton, doubtful whether AMN would want to go. He likes to play midfield and MA seems to have given him some assurance saying he is in his plans. He may not start every match in the PL but could come on as a sub in the midfield for Partey, ASL and Xhaka and could start the Cup games. If MA feels he can be of use to Arsenal, than AMN might as well stay.

  3. As far as I am concerned RWB is his best position and unless Arteta switches to a back three set up, which I hope he does not, I cannot see a future for him at Arsenal.I would sell him to anyone who offers around 12/15m.
