According to the usual click bait sites we are interested, he wants to leave arsenal, and a swap including him and money for Zaha is possible. One site reckons AMN could be valued at 20m, leaving arsenal with only 30m to find to meet Zaha's valuation, once they offer us the player as part of the deal.

No thanks.

I'm sure he has good good days but I've only ever seen him play badly, sometimes very. Classic example of a player being massively over rated and over priced simply because he is young, English and from the academy of a big club.

No, thank you.

I have never been impressed with Maitland-Niles.
Evidently he played against us in WBA's 1-0 defeat.Totally anonymous.

Against us in the 0-0 draw at the Emirates he was very disappointing and was taken off after 65 mins.

not a Bad player - but another that hasn't really kicked on since breaking into the arsenal Squad.

20m is a tad high valuation. I would say he's no more than a 10-15m player. but I guess that's what 'young, english and from a top 6 club' does to your Price tag.

Him and Reiss Nelson plus 25m and add ons for Zaha. Then I'd start to think about it.

There are stories that Man Utd signed Roy Keane and later on, Cristiano ROnaldo on the advice of their own players, who were impressed having played against them. As you rightly say Willo, no danger of that happening in this case.

AMN was our best player in that nil nil against Arsenal. Every time he got involved in the game he caused Arsenal serious problems. As for his performance for WBA, you are being polite in describing him as 'anonymous', unless that's French for 'crap'.

Literally no better than Townsend or Ayew, and possibly worse. Just younger that's all.
