Roma pushing for Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Serie A club Roma are reportedly in advanced talks with Arsenal to sign midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles on loan. Reports emerged earlier this week that suggested the two sides were in discussions over a potential loan deal for the January transfer window.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio now reports that talks are accelerating between the two clubs as Roma are pushing to agree a deal.

According to Di Marzio, the Giallorossi are looking to sign Maitland-Niles on loan with an option to buy in June 2022.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano reports on similar lines and suggests that Roma coach Jose Mourinho is pushing to sign the player with the two clubs hoping to finalise a transfer fee.
