Report – Tottenham linked with a shocking move for Arsenal star

Ainsley Maitland-Niles has emerged as a target for Tottenham after he was put up for sale by Arsenal, according to Sun Sports.

The 22-year-old Englishman is set to be sacrificed by the Gunners in their bid to raise cash for Mikel Arteta this summer.

Arsenal will not have so much money to spend in the transfer window this summer, so they will have to sell some stars to raise funds for their manager.

Tottenham is also facing a rebuild after naming Jose Mourinho as their manager late last year.

The former Real Madrid boss has managed to get them into a European place. However, he needs some new players and Maitland-Niles’ versatility makes him appealing.

Arsenal had earlier overruled Arteta’s demand for the academy graduate to remain with them to transfer-list him.

The Gunners are hoping to make around £30million from his sale alone, but he isn’t the only player that is expected to leave the club.

Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi are other names that might depart from the Emirates before the start of next season.  

While Guendouzi has fallen out of favour with Arteta, Torreira has struggled to find a place in Arteta’s setup.

It has to be said that it really would take some doing for the board to sanction Maitland-Niles sale to Spurs. The backlash would be immense and surely not even this incompetent board would allow such a sale to happen, would they?

    AMN IS ALMOST 23. THOUGH A VERSATILE PLAYER HE HAS HARDLY PULLED UP TREES HAS HE! Much depends on HOW ambitious fans are compared to the clearly massively ambitious MA. MA is looking to radicvally reshape the squad he had to inherit in his own methods. AMN is a useful player but for fans to get hysrrerical about him possibly – and is it not confirmed butonly rumoured, please bear in mind- goingto Spuds is plain silly. IF he is sold for around £30 mill that money can and will beused far mote usefully than to keep a mer useful an no longer young player at Arsenal . IF we truly want better players in, then football reality says we MUST shed someuseful players along with the acre of deadwood still here. Just calm down dears!

      Tbh he is one hell of an athlete with speed strength and versatility.
      He puts me in mind of gnabry when he was with us and look what happened there.
      With some 1 to 1 coaching and a little more beefing up he could become a very special player. I remember the game he played in mf where he ran it. At the end Pogba congratulated him on his performance.
      I’d keep him but does depend on whether we dont generate enough with other player sales first.
