Nottingham Forest are considering a move for Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles as they continue to support manager Steve Cooper ahead of their return to the Premier League.

Forest, who broke their club transfer record yesterday by signing Union Berlin’s £17million striker Taiwo Awoniyi, sees Maitland-Niles replace full-back Djed Spence who helped the club to promotion during his loan spell from Middlesbrough last season.

Maitland-Niles, 24, helped Arsenal win the FA Cup in 2020 but was subsequently loaned out to West Brom and Roma. Known for his versatility, he has also been capped five times by England.

Forest shows ambition after retaking their place at the highest level for the first time since 1999. Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is also on Cooper’s wish list.

Maitland-Niles began his career with Arsenal, signing a professional contract in 2014 before becoming a regular first-team member in 2017.

He has been awarded five caps for England but his recent loans have done nothing to bolster his claim for a new call-up to Gareth Southgate’s side.
