Nottingham Forest view Arsenal midfielder Maitland-Niles as Spence replacement

Nottingham Forest are lining up a deal for Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Forest boss Steve Cooper is actively discussing a move for the England international.

Forest view Maitland-Niles as a replacement for wing-back Djed Spence who helped the club win promotion last season during his loan spell from Middlesbrough, says the Daily Mail.

Maitland-Niles spent part of last season on-loan at AS Roma, helping them win the Europa Conference League.

However, a return to the Giallorossi is unlikely for the midfielder.
