Ainsley Maitland-Niles ready to quit Arsenal

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is leaning towards leaving Arsenal.

The Athletic reports Maitland-Niles is expected to leave this summer after falling out of favour with Mikel Arteta.

The 22-year-old - who has been at Arsenal since the age of six - has made 91 appearances for the club, including 30 last season under Unai Emery.

Maitland-Niles actually started the first five league games under Arteta, but has since failed to make the squad altogether after failing to impress.

Arsenal have a plethora of options at right-back, with Hector Bellerin, Callum Chambers and Cedric Soares all vying for a place in the starting line-up.

For Maitland-Niles, however, his 16-year Arsenal journey may soon be coming to an end.
