Ainsley Maitland-Niles is keen to leave Arsenal on loan in the final days of the January transfer window, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.
Maitland-Niles has struggled for game-time for Mikel Arteta’s men so far this term. He has only made five starts in the Premier League.
He was linked with the Emirates exit in the summer. The Guardian reported in August that he was close to making a £20 million move to Wolves.
2) Monaco 'best positioned to sign Lucas Torreira on loan for the rest of the season
Monaco are the reported frontrunners to sign Lucas Torreira this month with the Uruguayan struggling for game time on loan at Atletico Madrid from Arsenal.
The 24-year-old moved to Spain on a season-long loan on the same day that Thomas Partey moved the other way to north London, but he has struggled to play in Diego Simeone's side and has started just twice in La Liga this season.
The report details that Valencia, Torino, Lazio and Fiorentina were also interested in a potential deal for Torreira.

Arsenal are reportedly looking to muscle in on a move for Man City defender Eric Garcia.
The 20-year-old centre-back is out of contract at the end of the season, and could be allowed to leave for a cut-price fee this month.
According to Mundo Deportivo (via FourFourTwo ), Mikel Arteta is a big fan of Garcia, having worked with him at City previously.

PSG are keen on signing Matteo Guendouzi in a tempting swap deal, reports French publication L'Equipe.
Guendouzi is currently out on loan at Hertha Berlin and appears to have no future under Arteta at Arsenal.
That could persuade Arsenal to cut their losses with the youngster and move him on this month, with PSG reportedly willing to offer winger Julian Draxler in exchange.
6) Arsenal eye cut-price swoop for Southampton veteran star
According to Evening Standard (h/t Football London), Arsenal are eyeing a cut-price swoop for Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand in the January transfer window to bolster their defensive options.
As per the report, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is keen to bring in some specialist cover in that department following the loan exit of Sead Kolasinac earlier in the month. Bertrand’s contract at St. Mary’s is due to expire at the end of the season, leaving the door open for Arsenal to exploit his situation.

Martin Odegaard rejected Tottenham before deciding to join Arsenal from Real Madrid, according to reports in Norway.
The 22-year-old has moved to Mikel Arteta’s side on loan for the remainder of the campaign after he was unable to secure a regular role under Zinedine Zidane at Madrid.
But according to VG, Tottenham had also made an approach to sign Odegaard but the midfielder had made his decision to join Arsenal after speaking with Arteta.
VG also report that Odegaard’s team have negotiated an improved salary for the midfielder and the 22-year-old will be earning close to £100,000 a week for the duration of his stint at Arsenal – a significant improvement on the £38,000-a-week deal he currently has with Madrid.
