Mourinho hopes to call up Maitland-Niles for Juventus showdown

Ainsley Maitland-Niles of Arsenal

After a disappointing defeat at the San Siro, Roma prepare for Sunday’s big game vs Juventus.

According to Il Tempo, Maitland-Niles is on his way to the Italian capital, having departed earlier this morning.

The player should be officially announced before Sunday. This way, Jose Mourinho hopes to call him up in time for the showdown between Roma and Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico.

The English international will likely not be able to start, but could provide with a bit of energy off the bench in the absence of Rick Karsdorp who will miss out on the game due to suspension.
