Some Spurs fans on social media are divided over whether or not it would make sense for Tottenham to pursue a move for Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Such is the fierceness of the rivalry between Tottenham and Arsenal and that players hardly ever cross the North London divide directly, with William Gallas being the last person to do so over ten years ago.

The Sun claim that Tottenham could try and make a move for Maitland-Niles this summer, with the 22-year-old seemingly out of favour with Mikel Arteta.

The young defender, who graduated through the Arsenal academy has reportedly been put up for sale by the Gunners as they look to raise funds for their transfer targets.

It is claimed that Mikel Arteta’s side are hoping to get £30million for the young defender but may settle for around £20million.

Some Spurs fans insisted that Maitland-Lines could come good under Jose Mourinho and urged the Lilywhites to snap him up.

However, others were understandably unimpressed by the idea of signing an Arsenal playerr.

Spurs Web Opinion

Jose Mourinho likes working with versatile defenders like Maitland-Niles and he can arguably help fill some gaps in our squad. However, signing the Arsenal man might affect Tanganga’s development as the 21-year-old has shown enough this season to deserve game time next season. I suspect this our rumoured interest in Maitland-Niles is mere paper talk.
