​Arsenal 'very likely' to sign Flamengo loanee Pablo Mari

Arsenal are likely to seal the permanent signing of Pablo Mari in the summer.

The Athletic reports that the Gunners are impressed with the Spanish defender who arrived in a loan deal from Flamingo.

Mari has impressed in the first few games he played before the COVID-19 league suspension.

The Gunners will activate the £10 million buy option in the deal to sign him permanently.

He would add to their depth at central defence for next season.

Arsenal will still likely go after a top rate centre-back in the market, with Dayot Upamecano their primary target.
