Watford interested in Arsenal duo of Nketiah and Maitland-Niles

Arsenal duo of Eddie Nketiah and Maitland-Niles is attracting interest from Premier league newbies Watford FC.

Both players want more playing time with Niles having spent half of his last season on loan at relegated West Brom; the player being linked with a series of clubs too in the Premier league who think they can do with his experience.

Nketiah on the other hand has found games hard to come by with the presence of captain Aubameyang and that of Lacazette hampering his chances of playing regularly for Mikel Arteta.

Apart from the duo, Daily Mail reports that Watford is also interested in Rangers Glen Kamara who left Arsenal in 2017 after making over 40 u23 appearances and one senior start for the side. Kamara is currently in the Euro 2020 with Finland where he has been exemplary for his side.

The reports claim that apart from Watford, Nketiah is attracting interests from West Ham United, Crystal Palace, and Bayer Leverkusen, among others; Southampton, as reported by the Mirror, being the other team interested in Niles.

Arsenal will be hoping for serious bids in the cases of Nketiah and Maitland-Niles as they seek to raise enough money to fund some of their targets this summer.
