Arsenal Set Price Tags For Eddie Nketiah, Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Arsenal want to sell both Eddie Nketiah and Ainsley Maitland-Niles this summer to raise transfer funds for new arrivals.

Maitland-Niles has been playing regularly out on loan at West Brom in his preferred central midfield position but Mikel Arteta has never been convinced by his capability to fill that role at Arsenal.

With West Brom looking certain to be relegated, a number of clubs are now keen on signing the versatile England international this summer, with The Sun reporting Arsenal are demanding £20million for his sale.

Nketiah is another player who appears surplus to requirements at the Emirates.

The 21-year-old’s situation at Arsenal could hinge on the future of Alexandre Lacazette, 30, who may be sold this summer if the club opt not to renew his contract, which expires in 2022.

Arsenal's work in tying down youngster Folarin Balogun to a new long-term deal has raised further question marks over Nketiah's place in Arteta's plans though, with chances already limited.
