The terms would potentially leave the door open for a permanent move to the Italian capital in the summer. And it seemed that Maitland-Niles was ready to complete the change alongside José Mourinho.

However, there seemed to be the possibility of a late turn in history. 90min reports that several Premier League teams have made late inquiries about their availability.

But those teams eager for the 24-year-old to stay in England are ready for disappointment. The report suggests that Rome remains Maitland-Niles’ first choice.

You will be assigned a role in midfield. That’s reportedly particularly attractive for the England international.

Arsenal may not care that Ainsley Maitland-Niles opts for Serie A over the Premier League loan

Maitland-Niles has not had the best time in the Emirates. It has struggled to establish itself on the side. And it seems to be in everyone’s best interest that the academy graduate moves on.

However, he also has a lot of skill. And he is a player capable of presenting himself in a couple of positions. So chances are high that it could thrive elsewhere.

Therefore, handing him over to a Serie A club could be a smart move. If he does so well beyond January, Arsenal will hardly have to worry about facing him in the future.
