Newcastle weighing up a move for out of favour Arsenal man

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is attracting the attention of Newcastle United after falling out of favour at Arsenal.

The Englishman spent the second half of last season on loan at AS Roma, but he didn’t do well enough to earn a permanent move to Jose Mourinho’s side.

He returns to the Emirates as one of the unwanted players at Arsenal, and he is further down the pecking order.

The midfielder/wing-back could now leave the Emirates as TalkSport’s Alex Crook reveals he has interest from Newcastle United.

He tweeted:

“Hearing #NUFC have joined the race for #AFC midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles. More on @talkSPORT later.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Maitland-Niles gambled away his Arsenal future when he forced a move to AS Roma.

It was a transfer that had to work because he risked losing everything if it ended otherwise, and that is exactly what has happened.

He is lucky Newcastle wants to add him to their squad despite his underwhelming spell in Italy.

Arsenal will certainly work hard to get the deal sorted so that they can free themselves of another deadwood.

He could do a good job at a mid-table club like the Magpies, and we can only wish him luck if he makes the move.

  1. Is it just me, or would AMN be better for us than Elnenny. I dont see why he has been cold shouldered, especially after, probably his last ever start, where he was MOM for us against, i think Liverpool. He is young athletic, versatile and once worth far more than Elnenny ever was before his blanking. I know we need better but we need better than Elnenny as back up.

    1. @Reggie
      You’re making too much sense. The “faithful” have already deemed AMN not good enough and want him gone. What a shame…IJS

  2. It’s a tough one given the DM injuries but reality is he hasn’t produced the goods on a consistent basis at Arsenal despite many opportunities. Time for everyone to move on. Would rather see Lokonga get a chance if no one comes in.

  3. Unless Arsenal sign a midfielder I can’t see how they can possibly let AMN go would be a crazy decision he can definitely do a job in there ok not first choice by any means but a more than capable deputy and should get more game time than he actually does!

    1. I did not even see a “full stop” anywhere, let alone any other punctuation.

      But to be fair, Englisy is clearly not his first language. At least I must assume not , otherwise he really WOULD DESERVE CRITICISM
