A number of London-based clubs are believed to be showing an interest in Arsenals Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Arsenal willing to sell Maitland-Niles
Maitland-Niles is a product of Arsenals youth system.
And whilst the 22-year-old has never really been a mainstay for the Gunners senior side, he has still notched 100 appearances across all competitions for them.
32 of those outings came this term, with Mikel Arteta often using the right-back in the latter stages of the season.
The Spaniard even handed Maitland-Niels a start in the FA Cup final vs Chelsea, during which the England under-21 international put in a solid display.
However, despite being under contract at the Emirates until 2023 and getting decent minutes under Arteta, the full-backs future at Arsenal has been cast into doubt recently.
The Telegraph reported earlier this week that Maitland-Niles had been told by Arsenal he had been put up for sale to help raise transfer funds, even though Arteta would apparently have preferred him to stay put.

Tottenham interested in Maitland-Niles
Now, on Sunday, Maitland-Niels is being linked with a move to Arsenals bitter rivals, Tottenham.
According to the Sun, every Premier League side in London baring Chelsea but including Tottenham, have shown an interest in signing the versatile defender.
In terms of a fee for the Englishman, it is claimed the Gunners want £30m, though they may have to settle for £20m.
West Ham, Crystal Palace and Fulham are also named as potential suitors.
