So says the Telegraph. Is it true? At the moment, I’ve no idea but just in case it is, I thought it might be interesting to know the three words Pablo Mari said after the “Arsenal target” landed in London “to complete the transfer” – at least according to the

2 Replies to “Number of players now tipped to be coming to Arsenal this month reaches 40. Here’s the list.”
There is a video circling on twitter and various news outlets of Mari and Edu together at Heathrow. Chris Watts i believe is the journo who got the clip. I expect this to be announced shortly, depending on the medical.
So that’s one player and a leg we are signing.
Not too bad for us, as we can simply top up the leg in the summer.
Not so good for the club left with a player significantly under resourced in the limb department.
