Arsenal fans torn on imminent Pablo Mari signing

Arsenal, it seems, are close to signing Flamengo defender Pablo Mari.

Globo Esporte first appeared to share the news, saying that the 26-year-old was on his way to London, whilst Nicolo Schira then revealed that the Gunners would be paying €10m (£8.4m) and that he would sign a contract until 2024 – although Sky Sports claim that a loan deal is far more likely.

Now, a photo is doing the rounds appearing to show Edu at Rio de Janeiro airport with the former Manchester City man, whilst another shows the pair already landing at Heathrow airport.

Which club was Jens Lehmann signed from in January 2003?

With the deal within touching distance of completion the Emirates outfit’s supporters have been talking about their potential new arrival, and it seems they are torn on whether they are happy to see him join them.

Many are delighted with the apparent new addition.

Mari had a good 2019 with Flamengo in Brazil, playing in 22 matches in the league as they finished top, whilst also appearing in six Copa Libertadores games – Flamengo also triumphed in that trophy as well.

Other supporters, though, are not as happy.

Even though he is 26 years old, he had only played 32 matches in any country’s top flight prior to making the switch to Brazil.

With the deal looking close to completion, it remains to be seen whether he will prove to be a good addition.

Meanwhile, this ace has been a major casualty since Unai Emery left Arsenal.
