Wolves and Newcastle United have joined the race for Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Tottenham quickly became early favourites to land him but Wolves and Newcastle have now entered the race, says Sky Sports.

After a tricky season, Arsenal are undertaking a major overhaul both on and off the pitch.

Raul Sanllehi and Pat Rice have left the club, while a host of players are thought to be up for grabs this summer.

Maitland-Niles, 22, is one almost certain to quit this summer, and is reported to have claimed it was “in his best interests” to leave.

Arsenal had hoped to secure a £30m fee for the versatile midfielder, though will now accept £20m.
