Arteta loses fight with Arsenal over Brighton target Maitland-Niles

Mikel Arteta's attempts to keep Ainsley Maintland-Niles at Arsenal have failed.

The Telegraph says the Gunners board has overruled Arteta and will shop Maitland-Niles this summer.

The Spaniard attempted to persuade his superiors to keep Maitland-Niles due to the Europa League fixture pile-up.

But the club are under pressure to raise cash this summer and view the 22-year-old as surplus to requirements.

Brighton have been linked with the Hale End graduate, who can operate in defence and midfield.
