Wow! Arsenal and Udinese have agreed deal to allow defender to make shock January move
Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal and Udinese have agreed a deal which will allow Pablo Mari to leave on loan
There has been alot of rumours over the past few weeks about a number of players leaving the Gunners this transfer window as they cannot get the game time that they are looking for, or are no longer needed at the club.
Mari became a regular in the first-team when joining the club from Flamengo shortly after Mikel Arteta joined the club, but has found his opportunities increasing limited in recent months.
The likes of Rob Holding, Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes have all moved ahead of him in the pecking order, which has meant that he has only managed to make just three appearances this season.
Now, according to Italian Journalist Romano, he is set to make a move to Italian football and Udinese after both clubs agreed a deal that would see Mari move to Seria A until the end of the season.
He Tweeted: ‘Udinese have completed the agreement with Arsenal to sign Pablo Marí on loan until June. Deal set to be signed. 🤝🇪🇸 #AFC
Pablo Marí will join Udinese on straight loan – no buy option included. @DiMarzio’

Look, we are not saying that Maris should stay at Arsenal to sit on the bench and collect his wages, but we are saying that Arsenal should not be allowing players to leave this transfer window when they are short in all areas
Covid, injuries and many other issues have popped up this season already, and even though Maris has not played, should the Gunners board be making the decision to let Maris depart the club until the end of the season.
He may be needed in the next couple of weeks, so this is not a smart move to make
