Arsenal star, Ainsley Maitland-Niles is set to receive €2.5m as his salary at AS Roma after tax.
Corriere Della Sera reports that Maitland-Niles has finally reached an agreement with Roma that will see him join Jose Mourinho’s side on loan for the remainder of the season, with a view to making the deal permanent in the summer of 2022.
The 24-year-old looks set to become a Roma player when the January transfer window opens, as long as Arsenal and the Serie A side can agree to a fee.
On Tuesday, it was reported that Arsenal and Roma were close to agreeing to a deal that would see Maitland-Niles head to Italy for the rest of the season.
If that goes well, Roma plan to purchase him permanently in the summer for a fixed fee in the region of €10m – €15m.
Arsenal wants the latter amount while Mourinho’s side are trying to drive the price down, so the agreement will likely be found somewhere in the middle at around £10m, which is roughly what Maitland-Niles is worth.
So far this season, Maitland-Niles has started just four games – two in the Premier League and two in the League Cup and played the full 90 just three times for the Gunners.
