Premier League giants Arsenal are in line for an imminent funds boost, it has been revealed.
This comes as a current member of the club’s loan army prepares to make his departure a permanent one.
The player in question? Pablo Mari.
Central defender Mari, of course, sealed an Emirates exit last summer, after being deemed surplus to requirements by Mikel Arteta owing to the return of William Saliba.
Mari, in turn, made the move to Italy, linking up with Serie A newcomers Monza.
And, safe to say, his stint back in Italy’s top-flight has since proven an altogether more fruitful experience than his time in England.
All told, across the season to date, the Spaniard has racked up 24 league starts, playing a key role at the heart of Monza’s backline.
In turn, it should come as little surprise to hear that Silvio Berlusconi and the powers that be at the Stadio Brianteo are ready to make Mari’s arrival permanent.
As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano:
‘Arsenal are set to receive £6m fee for Pablo Marí as his transfer to Serie A side Monza will be made permanent.’
This comes with an agreement on the personal terms of a contract having long been agreed between the two parties.
