Arsenal loan star talks up a permanent move to the Emirates

Pablo Mari has called on Arsenal to make his loan move a permanent one as he eyes winning trophies at the Emirates.

The Spaniard is on loan from Brazilian club Flamengo and Arsenal could allow him to return after the coronavirus pandemic.

However, he has impressed in the two games that he has played for the Gunners and helped them keep clean sheets in each game.

It does appear that he has impressed both the fans and Mikel Arteta with his displays, but nothing is certain at the moment.

If it was left to the former Manchester City player to decide, he would remain at the Emirates because he thinks Arsenal’s brand of football is perfect for him as a footballer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the defender admitted that he has hopes of impressing the club well enough to earn a permanent move at the end of his current loan spell.

He also insisted that the focus is on the coronavirus pandemic at the moment but praised the impact Mikel Arteta has had in his game.

He told Sky Sports: ‘We played well. I have a lot of things to learn but I think my football can be really good with Arsenal.

‘I hope the club and I can go at the end [of the season] with good things to do the permanent transfer. We will see what happens because at the moment with the virus it is difficult.’

‘He has done really well so far. I’m really happy to work with him,’ he added.

‘He has helped me with my weaknesses and improved the strengths. I hope I can work with him a lot of years.’

Asked about his ambitions at the Emirates Stadium, Mari said: ‘To win the Premier League or try to go to the Champions League with the Arsenal. Also to go to the national team.’

It is probably too early to judge Mari and the club and Arteta will have to make a decision on what they have seen already, however, on a personal level, Mari signing permanently would be a good thing, he would be value for money in my humble opinion.

    I wonder if Cedric Soares will ever play a game for us.. if not and Pablo Mari is sent packing it’ll be a little unfair for both

      Bloody hell, Kev.. I’ve just finished watching the darts. Price played twice, won one, lost one.. the loss was 5-0 & the other fella got a 9 darter!! 😳 I’m not sure what disappointed me more – the loss or not hearing his walk on music ‘Ice ice baby’ 😂

    2. Sue says:

      Also Kev, I’d be more than happy with buying Mari. Can’t comment too much on Soares, as not watched him a great deal… He’s out of contract soon, but haven’t a scooby what will happen with all this uncertainty right now…

  2. Kev82 says:

    How do they play each other in isolation Sue ? Is there like a Skype split screen or something? Can’t imagine it being very exciting with no audience the audience helps you find your muse 😂😂 yeah but had he been blasting music through the house he’d probably have the neighbours complain 😂 yeah definitely can’t go too much wrong if it’s only cheap and I think the deal is 7 mil or something and with this coronavirus I can’t imagine big bucks being spent in the near future! I think Soares is a good player snap him up on a free transfer it’s a no brainer 👊

      Did you know it was one year ago tonight we beat Napoli 1-0 in Naples Sue ? I need to get out more which is impossible 😂😂

    2. Sue says:

      Yes it was a split screen, with very dodgy wifi 😂 and they called out their own scores.. it was different and at least I’ve had my fix….but it’s certainly not the way forward though haha!! Apparently it’s on for a month!!
      Wow was it already? I’ve been watching what Sky have to offer.. but I’m sick of seeing Sturridge and that stupid dance as well as Suarez and his teeth.. I just wanna see Stevie G slip 😂😂

      1. Kev82 says:

        Hahaha his broadband cuts out due to an unpaid bill 😂😂 yeah that’s true I suppose it’s better than nothing at all which is what us football fans are getting Sue, you can’t play a match at home in isolation 😂 I know time fly’s doesn’t it 😮 I wonder what Emery is doing with himself these days 😂 haha yeah I was watching the league cup final between city and Liverpool last night I tried to imagine it was live 😛 I’d rather they just cancel the season and start it all over from September maybe… ok we won’t have champions League but Liverpool won’t have the title either 😵

        1. Sue says:

          Well you can always play fifa 😂 it might become that desperate soon, I may even challenge my son on it… actually I’m not sure I’d be up for a double figure annihilation haha!! I’ve been on it before – it didn’t go well 🤣
          There’s no way Liverpool won’t be handed the trophy, Kev… they’ll sort something out to make sure they lift it. You know me, I’d love nothing more to see that devastated look on all their faces…no such luck though!!

          1. Kev82 says:

            Not me I don’t even have a playstation or Xbox 😂😂 I’m old school Sue I like the super Nintendo 😂 well you could just try and defend keep the score down ? 😛 Well I’m still hoping Sue and if they do give them the title and everyone else has their season void they will be paper champions and I don’t care if they’re 70 points clear 😂 at least we won’t have to watch their fans celebrate come July or August or whenever it is, I think we’ll be spared that 😛

  3. Sue says:

    Nintendo? Don’t you mean Atari?! 😂
    Haha yes park the bus Maureen style!
    I’ll still be buying a top of the range set of earplugs, Kev, just in case haha!!
    Imagine if they aren’t given it though.. I’d pay good money to see look on Thompson & Carragher’s faces.. ooh and Gary Neville, as he cracks open that bottle of champagne of course 😉

    1. Kev82 says:

      Haha 😂 I’d say you remember Atari and commodore 64 very well Sue you were probably a teenager when it was in the making 😂😂 lol that doesn’t even work anymore Sue the spuds have conceded more than we have 😛 I think you should Sue just take precautions 😂😂 he’ll love it more than us Sue and Jürgen Klopp will probably leave saving you a trip to the opticians 😂

      1. Sue says:

        Save a trip to the opticians? Don’t you mean applying for a guide dog?! Haha!

        Right Kev.. work tomorrow, I’m off to bed! Been nice talking to you again, even though you do take the p**s 😝
        Take care, Kev… stay safe! Goodnight… just like the old days hogging a thread 🤭

        1. Kev82 says:
