Interest is growing for Arsenal utility Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The Mirror says Maitland-Niles is being targeted for a summer transfer after his impressive loan spell at West Brom.

Crystal Palace are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in the Arsenal midfielder who will have two years left on his current deal at the end of the season.

Maitland-Niles moved in January to get regular football and has put in strong performances for West Brom who are making a late push for survival under Sam Allardyce.

Leeds have also been watching developments while there has been interest from French club Monaco while Wolves made a big attempt to sign him permanently last summer.

Maitland-Niles ended up staying at Arsenal but a lack of opportunities saw him push for a loan move in January and, despite interest from Southampton, Newcastle and Leicester, went to West Brom to try and get regular game time in midfield.
