Roma are close to finalising a loan deal for Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles. The deal under discussion is expected to be a loan until the end of the season with the option to make the move permanent. Maitland-Niles has started two Premier League games this season and the 24-year-old’s contract is up in the summer of 2023.
Arsenal will consider offers for Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers. Both players have struggled for playing time this season and don’t appear to be part of manager Mikel Arteta’s long-term plans – neither have featured in the Premier League since August. Mari has a contract until 2024 and Chambers is in the final six months of his deal
