Arsenal: Fans laud Pablo Mari after he completes his long-awaited transfer from Flamengo - Arsenal

Arsenal fans have been going crazy over Pablo Mari after the club confirmed the completion of his long-awaited transfer from Brazilian side Flamengo, leading to comparisons with other big centre-back signings.

In a short video posted on their Twitter account, the north London outfit welcomed the 26-year-old, who has joined on an initial loan deal. The move has experienced its ups and downs on the way to completion with the defender having arrived for a medical before returning to Brazil. That was followed by a report from ESPN which claimed a deal had collapsed after the Serie A side opposed the terms laid out by the Emirates Stadium giants.

One fan showed his appreciation for the centre-half by comparing him to Harry Maguire.

Mari isn’t a stranger to English supporters after he completed a permanent transfer to Manchester City from Spanish side Gimastic for just £180k back in 2016 (via Transfermarkt). Fans were left lavishing the player with praise after his move to the team was confirmed as they reacted. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
