Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been strongly linked with Everton the last day or so. According to multiple sources, the Toffees made a concrete offer for the services of the 24-year-old, aiming to boost the competition on their right defensive flank.

Maitland-Niles is keen to leave the Emirates, he made that clear himself with a post on Instagram.

“All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play,” he wrote, tagging the club’s official account. However, Paul Joyce of The Times says the club have informed him of their desire for him to stay put.

It’s been a busy transfer window for Arsenal as the stories about a squad overhaul persist into August, the very month when the Premier League restarts. The club have completed three signings so far, left-back Nuno Tavares, midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga and centre-back Ben White, and by all accounts, they’re working on getting a couple more in before they take on newly promoted Brentford in the opening round.

But in order to secure the funds necessary to go through with their plans, they will have to get a few outgoing deals done as well. According to the Express, they’re looking at seven players to help them in that aspect.

Ben White is obviously on the verge of becoming an Arsenal player, with his medical ahead of a £50m move expected to take place on Wednesday. However, the business doesn’t stop there, at least not when it comes to transfer rumours.

Fresh reports from Spain suggest the move for Martin Odegaard could yet be resurrected. The Norway international spent the second half of 2020-21 on loan at the Emirates, wearing the Arsenal shirt on 20 occasions in all competition, scoring and assisting twice apiece. The club were reportedly keen on turning the deal permanent this summer, but no deal has been struck and the 22-year-old Norwegian himself said he was ready to fight for his future at Real Madrid under Carlo Ancelotti.

There are those who are tipped to leave the club as well, such as Granit Xhaka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

It’s been a long and tricky road for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to navigate over the course of the last few years with the youngster being unable to really break into Arsenal’s first team squad. As a result, he went out on loan to West Bromwich Albion to get some first team experience – but it hasn’t been enough for him to secure a place in England’s squad for this summer’s European Championship.

During an interview with The Telegraph, Maitland-Niles was more than happy to go into detail about where his head is at heading into the summer.

Arsenal have reportedly made a list, consisting of 12 names, for whose services they will be considering offers this summer. Most of those names remain in the domain of guesswork as far as public knowledge goes, but The Telegraph claim that one of them is Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The 23-year-old is a product of the club’s Academy, and since earning first-team promotion, most of his 121 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal have been out wide, on either flank as need commanded. However, the player himself prefers a role in centre midfield, and that’s where he’s mostly been playing through his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion this season.

AS Monaco are interested in signing Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira on loan for the second half of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder is already temporarily away from the Emirates, on a season-long stint with Atletico Madrid, but having had only two La Liga starts for far, Arsenal are concerned about his welfare in the Spanish capital.

Technical director Edu recently voiced those concerns.

“Arsenal is concerned about Torreira, his happiness, that he plays and that he is well. We want to know about him how he feels and, later, of course, know what Atletico thinks.

Atletico Madrid are keen to sign Ainsley Maitland-Niles from Arsenal in January and they’re preparing a bid to test Arsenal’s resolve, according to Sky Sports.

Apparently, the Spanish club have been monitoring the progress of the 23-year-old wide man for the past 12 months, aiming to sign a player to cover their right defensive flank for years to come. They may have been eyeing a summer swoop, but their need has become quite urgent in the last few days as Kieran Trippier, the former Tottenham Hotspur man, picked up a 10-week ban worldwide for several accounts of betting rules violation.

Newcastle United lead the race to sign Rob Holding on loan from Arsenal, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

Holding has been playing very well since head coach Mikel Arteta started giving him a chance in his back-three system due to the injury suffered by Shkodran Mustafi. Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers have also been out for a while. Holding’s contribution was particularly notable in Arsenal’s triumph over Premier League champions Liverpool in the Community Shield, when he repeatedly thwarted the attacking efforts of Sadio Mane.
