Mourinho responds to Roma interest in Arsenal utlity Maitland-Niles

Jose Mourinho has said he knows Ainsley Maitland-Niles 'well' after Arsenal agreed to loan the Englishman to Roma.

The Gunners academy product is set to join the Giallorossi on loan until the end of the season.

A deal has been agreed in principle, and while Mourinho was hesitant to talk about the loan, the Portuguese admitted he was aware of Maitland-Niles.

"I don't feel comfortable talking about him, because nobody has officially told me that he is our player," said Mourinho, via Football Italia.

"He grew up at Arsenal when I was at Chelsea and Tottenham, so I know him well."
