News broke this Yesterday morning that Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles was garnering interest from fellow Premier League club Everton. The Merseyside outfit were thought to be offering an initial loan with a potential buy option at the end of the season. However, the Gunners have again rejected this.
With just over 24 hours left until the transfer deadline, the player has now publicly spoken out. He wrote on the social media platform: “All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play.” The latest developments add to the increasing feeling from outsiders looking in that Arsenal are clueless in the transfer window at present.
Maitland-Niles, thought to be available for sale this summer, has now been denied the chance to depart the club, while simultaneously not having yet started a competitive match this season. Arsenal have now told the 24 year old that he will not be training with the first team after his Instagram post sharing his desperation to leave the Emirates yesterday.
