Arsenal star holds clear-the-air talks with Mikel Arteta following transfer saga

Posted by

Arsenal ace Ainsley Maitland-Niles has reportedly sorted out his situation with the club after holding clear-the-air talks with manager Mikel Arteta.

Things were not looking too good on this front yesterday as The Athletic reported that Maitland-Niles was seeking to speak with Arteta about getting a move away from the Emirates Stadium, but a deadline day move never materialised.

According to the Daily Mail, it seems Maitland-Niles’ talks with Arteta actually ended up being quite positive, despite the Gunners supposedly blocking the 23-year-old’s potential move to Everton.

Most Arsenal fans will now surely be hoping that Maitland-Niles can get more playing time, as some of his performances earlier on in Arteta’s reign showed some real promise.

The England international was one of the top performers for Arsenal in some big games against Manchester City in the 2019/20 FA Cup semi-final, and then against Chelsea in the final as well.

It’s not clear why Arteta has since neglected to use Maitland-Niles as often, but perhaps now this can be a fresh start for the youngster at Arsenal.
