Arsenal news: Crystal Palace fans react to Maitland-Niles report
Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles has attracted an enquiry from Crystal Palace, according to a report from Football London, in news that has prompted plenty of social media reaction.
Maitland-Niles’s future has been widely discussed, particularly in recent days. He recently opened up on his plans following his loan spell away from the Emirates.
The 23-year-old certainly seemed to leave the door open for a potential move. And it appears that that door may open up at Selhurst Park.
According to a report from Football London, the Eagles have made an enquiry for the Arsenal academy graduate.
The Eagles are currently without a manager. But director Dougie Freedman is reportedly working on a potential move for the Arsenal man.
Previous reports suggested that the Gunners would want £20 million for Maitland-Niles. So it will be interesting to see how talks progress.
It does appear to be the right time for Maitland-Niles to move on. Unfortunately, he has not managed to secure a regular spot in Mikel Arteta’s plans.
And it seems that many of the Palace fans would love to see him join them during the coming months.
Several have taken to social media to express their excitement about the reports.

Admittedly, some are adamant that the priority should be finding a new manager. But given Maitland-Niles’s versatility, there is every chance that he could find a place in the team whoever comes in.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Palace supporters have reacted to the links…
