Report – Tottenham planning an audacious raid on Arsenal

Tottenham and Arsenal have one of fiercest rivalries in world football both on and off the field of play.

When these two teams clash, the players and fans know that so much is at stake and each side does their best to win.

Off-field, there is rarely a time when a player has swapped the colours of one of them for the other, but that might change soon.

Sol Campbell was the most high-profile player to swap between the clubs and history might be about to repeat itself.

Mail Online claims that Tottenham is eyeing an audacious move for Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The Englishman has been informed by Arsenal that he will be sold if a team makes a good offer for him.

The report claims that the Gunners have set 20 million as their asking price for the academy product.

Tottenham sees him as the perfect right-back for them as they continue to struggle to get a performance from Serge Aurier.

Jose Mourinho used the Ivorian for much of last season because he had no choice, but he will look to get a more capable player for that position this summer, and that player might be Maitland-Niles.

Personally, I just can’t see this happening, I cannot imagine Maitland-Niles wanting to join that lot, however, if he feels hurt and rejected by Arsenal who knows what could happen.

    They must leave our Ainsley alone. Arteta won’t sell him anyway. Why don’t they consider to buy Kolasinac?

  2. RSH says:

    I can’t imagine this would ever be approved. Also, it’s the Daily Mail.

    Arteta has already persuaded AMN to stay, believe me, he ain’t going to spurs (small s).

    This would be the worst decision as amn is so versatile all he needs is a bit of strength then I see the best holding midfielder awaken in him in the lights of song. He’s 1 of our best 1 on 1 players if not the best and have the speed to recover we have the ability in him that Manchester have in wanbisaka. He can pass his player with ease so selling him to our worst rival will be the worst decision and 20mil for him to any club will be the stupidest thing arsenal fc would’ve done in this past few windows

      I always thought that Ozil was our best! Oh yes he is, in terms of wages and nothing else!

    £20 million totally undervalues AMN’s worth as a versatile football. If Arsenal sells to any club, let alone Spurs, for that price, the management again shows their incompetence.
    Having grown up in this Club, I can’t see AMN joining Spurs.

      “footballer”.
