Wolverhampton Wanderers need to inject some freshness into their midfield for next season.
Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho struggled at times in 2020/21.
Ruben Neves was slightly better, but reports are rife at the moment that he could leave Molineux this summer.
Perhaps one man who ought to be considered is Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
The star has conducted an interview with the Telegraph, and it’s clear he is not entirely happy with his current situation.
He said: “I want a decision. I want some clarity. And then hopefully I can get to work with whoever I need to get to work with.
“Whether that is finding a new club or whether that is carrying on with my training. I would like some kind of indication of what is happening. Where they [Arsenal] see me.
“If it works out it works out, if it doesn’t then kiss Arsenal goodbye.”
Wolves have reportedly had interest in Maitland-Niles in the past.
Sky Sports reported last year that Wolves saw a bid of £15 million rejected for the 23-year-old.
Given his current standing in the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, and the fact he only has two years left on his contract, perhaps Arsenal would sell Maitland-Niles if presented with a similar sort of offer now.
Maitland-Niles has plenty to offer
He didn’t pull up trees on loan at West Bromwich Albion.
But he was never likely to in a team fighting relegation that never had much of the ball.
Potentially he could make for a decent signing for Wolves this summer.
His energy and versatility are two of his best qualities.
Perhaps Wolves ought to test the waters over Maitland-Niles and see what’s what.
