Sampdoria interested in Arsenal defender

Sampdoria are interested in signing Arsenal defender Pablo Mari.

Secolo XIX have provided some details about Sampdoria’s transfer approaches for January. While the club has now opened talks to bring Vincenzo Grifo to Italy, Samp sporting director Daniele Faggiano is also interested in Arsenal’s Pablo Mari.

The club is working to initially agree personal terms with Mari, who is finding little playing time at Arsenal. But the player has an offer in hand from Brazilian club Flamengo and while he likes that option, Samp are working to change his mind currently.

The 28-year-old has made only two Premier League appearances for Arsenal this season, but he hasn’t even made it to the club’s squad since their loss to Chelsea early in the campaign.
