RomaPress – Roma are incredibly active on the transfer market and want to hand Josè Mourinho reinforcements.

The Giallorossi are working on several incoming and outgoing operations, including a “double deal” at right back.

One of Mourinho’s top requests for January is an experienced right back who can alternate with first-choice option Rick Karsdorp.

As a result, the Giallorossi opened talks with Arsenal and are close to finalising a loan deal for Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The arrival of Maitland-Niles would pave the way for 20 year-old Bryan Reynolds, who has played sparingly this season, to leave Roma on loan.

As learned by RomaPress, the United States international is nearing an agreement to join Belgian side Anderlecht on a six-month loan deal.

Reynolds was linked to several clubs in recent weeks, including a potential return to MLS. However, a member of the defender’s entourage confirmed his priority is to remain in Europe.

An agreement between the two clubs is in place but Roma will only green light the transfer once they officially acquire Maitland-Niles
