Arsenal are considering offering Ainsley Maitland-Niles to Wolves, according to a report by the Express.
They claim that part of the Gunners’ bid to sign Ruben Neves could involve the England international going the other way.
Wolves were interested in Maitland-Niles last summer, and a £15 million bid was apparently turned down in August.
Maitland-Niles has given an interview this week where he said he wants his Arsenal future resolved.
“I want a decision. I want some clarity,” he said.
“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.”
Maitland-Niles wants to play in midfield
Maitland-Niles is a versatile player who has played at wing-back and full-back for Arsenal.
But he wants to be a central midfielder, which means in theory he could replace Neves.
Neves is a leader at Wolves, capable of the spectacular. Maitland-Niles is more mobile and does have decent ability.
He’s already a senior international and at 23, has his best years ahead of him, while also being experienced in the Premier League.
