Tottenham Hotspur are one of four London clubs to have registered an interest in Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly tempted to move for Ainsley Maitland-Niles after the versatile wideman was put up for sale by bitter rivals Arsenal.

Despite the best efforts of boss Mikel Arteta, the Gunners' board are rumoured to have transfer listed the 22-year-old in order to raise funds.

Maitland-Niles featured 32 times for Arsenal in all competitions in 2019-20, being used at right-back, on the right of midfield and also as a right-sided forward.

According to The Sun, Jose Mourinho is a fan of the former England Under-21s international's adaptability and may make a move this summer.

The same report indicates that Maitland-Niles looks set to stay in London as West Ham United, Crystal Palace and newly-promoted Fulham have also declared an interest.

Arsenal are supposedly hoping to raise £30m for their academy product, although they have accepted that he may go for closer to the £20m mark with top-flight clubs feeling the pinch.
