Crystal Palace have made enquiries to Arsenal over a potential deal for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to Arsenal’s chief Football London reporter Chris Wheatley.
And, as to be expected, a number of Eagles fans have been sharing their thoughts on the transfer update on social media.
Would you like to see Maitland-Niles at Palace?
Yes, perfect player for us!
No, can do better!
Palace are still on the hunt for Roy Hodgson’s long-term successor after a deal for former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo fell through on Tuesday evening.
So, with no first-team boss in place, you’d expect sporting director Dougie Freedman would be at the heart of Palace’s enquiry for Maitland-Niles ahead of the 2021/22 season.
The 23-year-old, who is capable of playing all over the park, spent the second half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at West Brom. He made 15 appearances for the Baggies but couldn’t prevent relegation back to the Championship.
Palace fans react
Wheatley posted the news on Palace‘s interest in Maitland-Niles on Twitter. Plenty of Gunners and Eagles supporters reacted to the post, with these Palace fans keen to see a deal materialise and one describing a possible deal as ‘great’.
“I’ll take that”
“Would be a great signing”
“Yep…alongside Conor Gallagher please”
“Won’t happen but would be a great signing”
