‘We Should Cash In On Him’ ‘Won’t Be Missed’ Fans Discuss Claims That 28 Year Old Defender Wants Arsenal Exit

Arsenal defender Pablo Mari is keen on leaving the Emirates when the transfer window reopens, according to reports.

The 28-year-old has barely featured this season, having played his last league match in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea, and supporters on Twitter are pretty happy for him to be sold:

Former club Flamengo are believed to be Mari’s likeliest destination and it’s highly unlikely that the Gunners will manage to recoup the £6.8m they paid to sign the centre-back.

Manager Mikel Arteta will also have to consider whether he can do without the Spaniard for the second half of the season. Arsenal are, however, not exactly short of options in the middle of defence.

As well Ben White, Gabriel and Rob Holding, fullbacks Takehiro Tomiyasu and Calum Chambers are also comfortable playing in more central positions.

Mari has been rather disappointing since his arrival in January last year, with the centre-half’s lack of pace meaning he has always struggled with the speed of English football.
