Arsenal have already made key transfer decision ahead of the summer

Pablo Mari’s future may already have been resolved.

Arsenal have reportedly made a decision on the future of on-loan defender Pablo Mari already.

According to Coluna do Fla, the Gunners have already decided they will trigger the option to make Mari’s move to the Emirates Stadium permanent this summer.

Mari is yet to make his Arsenal debut after joining on loan from Flamengo this January, but he looks a promising talent who could give us something different in defence.

The 26-year-old did not arrive as the biggest name this winter, and some fans will no doubt feel the club should be pursuing someone more proven at the highest level.

Still, the work Mikel Arteta has done on improving Shkodran Mustafi perhaps shows that there is some sense in giving Mari a chance to develop, even if he isn’t as proven as some of the other names our rivals are likely to be linked with in the coming months.

    My instincts shriek out that this is true and that MARI will become our signed player AND will be our best CB FOR SOME CONSIDERABLE TIME. Certainly since Kos was at his vert best and possible even better. My instincts just shriek this to me and when they shriek,then baby you better listen.(as I shriek to myself!) Not to be confused wirth Shrek, who’s now at Derby!

    Not a bad idea, Mari is a good player, let’s see what happen in the future before judging him. As per this season, he will still get his playing time

    I am not in the slightest bit concerned about Arteta`s ability to be successful at Arsenal but he needs the support of the fans the players and lady `luck`. If I am to be critical then , without being an expert, I would be looking to replace our goalkeeper who makes too many fundamental mistakes for my liking. The team must have confidence in their defence in order to relax and play to the best of their ability, then goals will come.

    The team selection was certainly capable of achieving a result. They looked short on ideas, there was no sparkle! This team were tired, lacked drive . Arsenal, you can and should do better.
    Gather up and refit (energise) your ^mojos^
