Arsenal mulling over Pablo Mari transfer offer from Serie A side Monza after loan bid with obligation to buy | The Sun

ARSENAL are set to decide whether to accept a bid from Monza for Pablo Mari, according to reports.

The newly promoted Serie A side have submitted a bid that is a season-long loan which includes an obligation to buy clause if they avoid relegation.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims it is now up to the Gunners whether they choose to accept the offer.

Mari, 28, has been at Arsenal since 2020 but is now deemed surplus to requirements having fallen down the centre-back pecking order at the club.

Overall, the Spaniard has made 22 appearances for Arsenal scoring one goal.

He spent time away from the Emirates last season, being loaned out to Udinese of Italy.

Mari could now be set to stay in the country with Monza but Fenerbahce also reportedly hold an interest in him.

Monza are looking to bolster their defensive options ahead of their first ever season in Serie A.

The minnows are owned by Silvio Berlusconi, the ex-owner of AC Milan and a former prime minister of Italy.

And the club are ready to splash the cash having reportedly been keen on Edinson Cavani and Mauro Icardi.
