Arsenal midfielder desperate to join Everton
Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles is desperate to make the move to Everton before the summer transfer deadline.
The England international has yet to start in the Premier League this term, and he is keen to pursue a fresh challenge.
The Toffees have made the move to sign him on loan with the option to buy at the end of the ongoing campaign.
However, the Gunners have blocked a potential deal with Mikel Arteta reluctant to part ways with his services.
Maitland-Niles has voiced his frustration on Instagram where he has publicly stated that he would like to join the Toffees.
He is now holding face-to-face talks with Arteta regarding the matter, and could yet make the move to Goodison Park.
Maitland-Niles has played as a full-back for most of his career, and he could compete for the right-back position at Everton.
The 24-year-old has the assurance of regular game time with the Toffees. He is keen to return to the England squad soon.
