Trio of clubs interested in Maitland-Niles

Arsenal defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles is on the radar of three Premier League rivals and is expected to be sold this summer.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a strong end to the 2020-21 season while on loan at West Brom, attracting attention from a number of English clubs.

BBC Sport now report that Leicester City and Southampton were both keen on Maitland-Niles in the January transfer window and have reportedly already shown interest in the youngster,

The report also suggests that Burnley manager Sean Dyche is keen on Maitland-Niles who can play in both midfield and defence.

Despite having another two years on his contract, the player is widely expected to leave North London this summer in search of first-team football.
