Tottenham have reportedly set their interest in Ainsley Maitland-Niles after it surfaced that the Gunners put up the player for sale.

Tottenham are ready to make a move for Arsenal’s Maitland-Niles as the 22-year-old could be up for grabs this summer.

The Gunners are in a ‘tight’ financial situation and it’s likely they will have to sell a few players to raise funds for summer transfers. The recent decision that saw 55 redundancies at the club all but sums up the above narrative.

As per reports, Maitland-Niles is one of those players that could be allowed to leave as Mikel Arteta plots a summer overhaul.

The Sun is claiming that Tottenham are now ready to make a swoop for the English star who is valued at around £30m by Arsenal.

However, the same report says the Gunners might eventually have to settle for around £20m considering the ‘financial state’ of clubs all over at the moment.

On the path of Spurs, Jose Mourinho is aiming to make a re-build as Spurs missed out on a top-four spots this season. The Portuguese manager is pleased with the versatility of the Arsenal star. In his stay at the Emirates, Maitland-Niles has played in a number of positions including all over the defence and in midfield.

Asides Tottenham, Brighton, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Fulham will also monitor the situation of the 22-year-old.
