Earlier this week, news broke of an offer from AC Monza to sign Pablo Mari on loan, with an obligation to buy if they avoid relegation this season, broke.

At the time, it was the most concrete offer Arsenal had received, seemingly making Monza the favorites to sign Mari. But Hellas Verona is now pushing to come back in front.

fabrice romano report that Arsenal have received a new offer for Mari, this time a permanent offer from Verona. Monza’s loan offer is still on the table and a decision is expected soon.

Romano adds that Mari is ‘100 per cent’ likely to leave Arsenal in the coming weeks, it’s just a matter of where he ends up.

At first glance, moving to Verona makes more sense. This guarantees Arsenal an upfront fee, Verona are more likely to have a strong season than newly-promoted Monza, and Mari already knows his head coach Gabriele Cioffi from Udinese.

The only factor that could work in Monza’s favor is the size of their buy clause. At this time, we don’t know how much they offer as a purchase obligation, nor how much Verona offers.

But all the details that are public seems to indicate a transfer to Verona. We will see what decision Mari will make in the next few days.

Mari made 15 appearances for Udinese last season, joining them towards the end of the January window. A return to Italy seems to be his best option this summer, as it’s obviously a league he can have more success in than he had in England.

Arsenal appear set for Mari’s departure, leaving him out of their squad against Crystal Palace on Friday night.
