Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly lining up a summer move for Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The 22-year-old made 33 appearances for the Gunners during the 2019-20 campaign, although he only completed the full 90 minutes in one of their last 10 league matches of the season.

The Englishman – contracted to Mikel Arteta’s side until June 2023 – could allegedly be moved on this summer, and a recent report claimed that two Premier League clubs are interested in his signature.

According to the Daily Mail, Maitland-Niles’s versatility is admired by Tottenham’s recruitment team, and Jose Mourinho‘s side are planning a £20m offer ahead of the new season.

The former England Under-21 international largely played as a right-back for the Gunners last term but also featured as a central midfielder after the lockdown period.

Brighton & Hove Albion and Everton are also believed to be keeping a close eye on developments.
