5 Arsenal Teenagers That Could Be Set To Break Into the First Team


5 – Ainsley Maitland-Niles


Age: 19
Primary Position: Central Midfield

Maitland-Niles has featured a handful of times for the first team, his most recent appearance coming in the unfamiliar role of right back in the league cup against Nottingham Forest. Last season he spent a successful year at Ipswich Town, playing predominantly as a winger. He has also previously been used as a central midfielder for Arsenal. His versatility stands him in good stead as Arsene looks to incorporate him into the first team setup. Keep an eye on this kid because I rate him very highly. For the reserves this season he has reverted to a defensive midfield role most regularly.
