RomaPress – Ainsley Maitland-Niles arrived in the Italian capital late this afternoon to officially begin his adventure with Roma.
The 24 year-old’s private flight from London landed just after 15.30 CET this afternoon at Ciampino Airport. Neither Roma nor Arsenal have yet released a communication stating that the transfer is complete. However, the capital club already submitted and deposited his contract with Lega Serie A, which makes the deal official.
The defender is expected to participate in his first training session tomorrow morning and, barring any setbacks, will likely be called-up for Sunday’s clash against Juve.
First choice right-back Rick Karsdorp is unavailable to face the Bianconeri due to a one-match ban. Thus increasing the possibility Maitland-Niles could start this weekend.
