The well-known and well-respected journalist has claimed that Arsenal have received a new bid for Mari from Hellas Verona.
The Italian outfit want to sign the £49,000-a-week (SalarySport) Spanish central defender on a permanent deal this summer.
Romano has added that Monza are keen on Mari as well, but the Serie A outfit want a loan deal for now.
The Italian journalist has further claimed that the Spaniard will certainly leave Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
Pablo Mari to leave Arsenal
Gunners exit makes sense
In our view, it would make sense for Arsenal to offload Pablo Mari in the summer transfer window.
We just cannot see how Mari is going to get playing time for Arsenal this season.
Ben White and Gabriel were brilliant for Arsenal in central defence last season, and now the Gunners have William Saliba in their squad now.
It would be better for Mari to leave the North London club this summer and find a team where he would be a regular.
