Graeme Souness has revealed that Ainsley Maitland-Niles isn’t at Arsenal because he lacks consistency in his game.
The 23-year-old was expected to leave the Emirates Stadium, however, ended up in joining West Brom on loan last month.
And speaking about the player, former Liverpool man, Souness told Sky Sports during their live coverage of Super Sunday:
“Yes, he’s got talent. But if you want to play in the Premier League, especially for one of the big teams, you have to be consistent. The word consistency is what it’s all about.
“You have to turn up and put in a seven every week. It’s no good having a great game and then a very disappointing game. That’s why he’s not at Arsenal, right now.
“We are not talking about an Arsenal team that are tearing walls down. This is an Arsenal team that are huffing and puffing.”
