Ibrox supremo Mark Warburton could work wonders with this lad if he swapped London for Glasgow.
Rangers manager Mark Warburton celebrates at the end of the match
Rangers will be back playing in the Scottish Premiership next season after Mark Warburton guided them to Scottish Championship glory this term.
One factor that Warburton and his recruitment team at Rangers got right this season was the loan market. They brought in some very talented young players from English football – such as Tottenham’s Nathan Oduwa and Dominic Ball and Arsenal’s Gedion Zelalem.

So should Rangers go looking at another Arsenal talent for next season – in the form of Ainsley Maitland-Niles? It might be just what he needs.
The wide man is undoubtedly talented and spent the majority of last season at Ipswich Town. However, his career has been blighted by a series of events off the pitch involving his mother
In April it was reported by the Daily Mail that his mother had left an expletive-laden voicemail for Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy which saw him dropped from the Ipswich first-team.
The previous April the BBC reported his mother had been arrested at an under-21 match for Arsenal and been banned by the club.

Perhaps a move to Ibrox – and a completely different environment far away from the distractions of home – would suit Maitland-Niles.
Not only that but Warburton would be a brilliant coach for him at Rangers whilst his pace and dribbling ability would make him a nightmare for Scottish Premiership defenders if he did head to Glasgow this summer.
A move north of the border might just be the best thing for this talented Arsenal wing-wizard.
