Ainsley Maitland-Niles is on his way to become a Roma player in the coming hours.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, the 24-year-old is currently undergoing his medical with Roma in London, more specifically, in Arsenal’s own medical center.

The deal for the England international will initially function as a straight loan but the two clubs are reportedly open to negotiations near the end of the season.

Alas, Roma have found their first signing of the January window.
