Arsenal are reportedly open to covering some of Pablo Mari’s wage should the Spanish defender leave for good this summer, with Hellas Verona interested in signing the centre-back.

According to Corriere di Verona via SportWitness, the Serie A side are very interested in signing the 28-year-old Arsenal outcast this summer.

However, like many sides across Europe, Hellas cannot afford Mari’s wages, yet it appears that Arsenal are willing to cover some of the defender’s salary.
