Pablo Mari set to leave

In the first Gunners news of the day, Spanish defender Pablo Mari is set to leave the club on loan, with a move to Serie A side Udinese lined up.

The defender was Mikel Arteta’s first Arsenal signing, and was highly-rated in part due to his left-footedness, but has not played for the club in the Premier League since being bullied by Romelu Lukaku in the Gunners’ 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Matchday 2.

And while, at present, the move only looks set to come in the form of a loan, it is hard to see a way back for the Spaniard, with William Saliba set to return in the summer.

Will Arsenal be able to cope with just Rob Holding as a backup defender until then?

Kolasinac also set to depart

Next, in what looks set to be a significant clearout from Mikel Arteta, fringe player Sead Kolasinac is also set to depart this month. The Bosnian has not played a meaningful game for the club since he started the 5-0 defeat to Manchester City in August, and with six months left on his contract, has probably played his last minutes in Arsenal colours.

Now, it appears as though he could be joining Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba at Marseille, with the French side pushing hard for his signature.

It is unclear at this time whether it would be a loan or a permanent deal, but either way Arsenal’s fans may have seen the last of Kolasinac.

Arthur details emerge

Arsenal’s hunt for midfield cover has seemingly led them to the door of Juventus, for Brazilian Arthur Melo.

The Gunners are keen on a loan move for the midfielder, although any move could be held up by Juve’s need for a replacement first.

However, Arteta and co. are reportedly willing to cover the Brazilian’s salary in full, as a loan move edges closer. All parties are keen on the move, it is now just up to the Turin club to give the green light.

Would he be a good addition to Arsenal’s midfield, or should they be aiming higher?
