West Ham need to strengthen their defence and midfield this summer.

So Arsenal ace Ainsley Maitland-Niles would be a useful option for them what with the 22-year-old’s versatility.

The 22-year-old registered two assists in 20 Premier League appearances this season (Who Scored).

In those 20 outings, Maitland-Niles averaged 2.1 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.6 clearances and 1.1 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

The versatile youngster really does have everything. He is incredibly mobile, possesses impressive stamina and has power and pace in abundance.

Maitland-Niles also fits into the category of young, hungry and with a point to prove.

But it is highly doubtful that West Ham actually have any chance of signing the 22-year-old. Especially with Tottenham also thought to be in the race for his signature (the Sun).
