Leicester, Burnley and Southampton keen on Arsenal utility Maitland-Niles

Leicester City, Burnley and Southampton are among the teams with a serious interest in Ainsley Maitland-Niles from Arsenal.

Per BBC Sport, the Foxes, Clarets and Saints are all eager to secure the versatile midfielder, who can also play as a wing back.

The 24-year-old could be part of a deal that takes James Maddison to Arsenal, but Leicester are not thought to have any interest in selling Maddison.

Maitland-Niles struggled for minutes under Mikel Arteta at Arsenal last season.

He may feel a move away is the best chance for him to resurrect his career.
