Flamengo defender Pablo Mari in London for Arsenal medical

Flamengo defender Pablo Mari has arrived in London for a medical at Arsenal, with the club in talks to sign the defender on loan.

Arsenal are looking to sign the Spaniard on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy.

Mari signed a contract with Manchester City in 2016, but never played for them.

The 26-year-old would become Mikel Arteta's first signing since taking over as Arsenal's head coach in December.

Mari's Flamengo sign won Brazil's Serie A, with the defender featuring in 22 of the 38 games, scoring twice as Flamengo finished 16 points clear of Santos and Palmeiras.
