Spain’s Arsenal defender Pablo Mari is expected to land at Udinese on loan.
Arsenal player Pablo Mari is set to be loaned to Udinese, joining Filip Benkovic, who recently left Leicester City. The Spaniard started the Gunners’ first two Premier League appearances this season – two 2-0 defeats to Brentford and Chelsea – before coming on to the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Wimbledon in September.
A loan without an option to buy
Unfortunately for Mari, this was his last appearance with the club and he has since fallen out of favor and down the pecking order, behind Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes. Sampdoria have also shown interest in the former Flamengo player. Udinese will cover part of Mari’s salary but will not have a purchase option.
