Newcastle ‘baulk at Arsenal’s £25m asking price for Ainsley Maitland-Niles and join the race to sign exciting young Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster on loan’

  • Arsenal rejected a £15m bid from Wolves for Ainsley Maitland-Niles this week 
  • But now reports claim Newcastle have enquired about signing the 23-year-old 
  • Steve Bruce’s side have also expressed an interest in signing Rhian Brewster
  • The Liverpool forward scored 10 goals in 20 games for Swansea last season 

Newcastle are interested in signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles but have been put off by Arsenal‘s £25m valuation of the player, according to reports.

The Gunners rejected a £15m bid from fellow Premier League side Wolves earlier this week for the in-demand 23-year-old Englishman.

But now The Telegraph report that Steve Bruce’s Newcastle have made an enquiry for the FA Cup winner, and while they believe he would move to the north east, the club are in no mood to offer the fee demanded by the north London side.
