Arsenal could have another chance at a substantial transfer win in January.
Gunners midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been heavily linked to a summer window exit.
In the end, Arsenal refused to allow the midfielder to leave, causing the midfielder to break out on social media.
But he’s since been brought back into the line-up, starting with the weekend’s 1-0 win over Norwich City, the Gunners’ first points of the season.
Maitland-Niles’ inclusion suggests he will have to play a role under Mikel Arteta this season, but according to the latest reports from ESPN, Everton, who was the interested party in the summer, is expected to take a new move in January will.
And that could give Arsenal a chance to make at least £ 14.4million, according to Transfermarkt.
Maitland-Niles could well do more than that as the Daily Mail claims Arsenal want up to £ 25million during the transfer window.
But that’s Transfermarkt’s rating, so it should be the least that Arsenal can expect.

However, there is a long time between now and January that Maitland-Niles may well be persuaded to stay should he get regular minutes.
If not, Arsenal can at least make the most of the money they could bring in, which would likely be more than they would get next summer as Maitland-Niles is out of contract in 2023.
