Roma are keen to give Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles the chance to reignite his career in Serie A in January.

The 24-year-old saw a summer switch to Everton collapse late on, after which he took to social media to urge the Gunners to let him leave in search of regular first-team football.

Since then, Maitland-Niles has featured in eight Premier League games, just two of which were as a starter, and he has not made it on to the pitch in any of Arsenal’s last six matches.

A January exit is on the cards, and The Athletic state that Roma have added Maitland-Niles to a list of potential targets once the transfer window opens.

Jose Mourinho’s side have reached out to Arsenal to discuss a loan deal and Maitland-Niles is understood to be keen to make the move. Everton also remain interested in a loan but the versatile midfielder would rather head overseas.
