After touching down in London from Brazil, Pablo Mari has confirmed his surprise move to Arsenal from Flamengo.
The defender will be no stranger to life in England after previously turning out for Manchester City but never played a single game for the club.
Mari said his goodbyes to his teammates and the coaching staff at Flamengo on Friday and will now undergo a medical at London Colney before penning personal terms.
According to Goal, who had a brief word with the defender as he came through the arrivals gate with Edu, Mari was asked if he was excited to sign for Arsenal, and he effectively confirmed the move saying: "Yeah of course!"
