Arsenal agree £4.2m loan deal for Flamengo’s Pablo Mari with Arteta getting option for permanent transfer in the summer – The Sun

ARSENAL have reached a new agreement to sign Flamengo defender Pablo Mari, according to reports.

The deal for the Spanish defender was in major jeopardy as negotiations between Arsenal and the Brazilian side stalled.

It was reported that the Gunners changed the terms of the transfer after an agreement was struck with the Brazilian side.

Arsenal had initially agreed to sign the Spaniard, 26, permanently but then wanted to make it a loan deal instead.

According to reports in Brazil, Arsenal will pay a £4.2million loan fee to bring Mari in for the rest of the season.

And then the Gunners have the option to sign the defender on a permanent deal in the summer.

Mari flew into London on Saturday alongside Arsenal technical director Edu.
