Pablo Mari insists he is delighted to join ‘one of the best clubs in the world’ in Arsenal and says he intends to achieve ‘big things’ while at the Emirates.

Spanish defender Mari became the first signing of Mikel Arteta’s reign when he joined the Gunners on loan from Flamengo on Wednesday.

Arsenal identified Mari as a priority target earlier in the month and have the option to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal in the summer.

Speaking out after joining the Gunners, Mari said: ‘This is one of the best clubs in the world, so I’m absolutely delighted to be joining.

‘I’m really looking forward to playing in this jersey and helping my team.’

Asked what Arsenal fans can expect from him, Mari added: ‘I’m a very professional player. I like working hard every day to achieve objectives.

‘One thing I can control is working hard on a daily basis to help my team-mates to win football matches and repay the faith that Mikel and Arsenal have shown me by signing me to play here, so that’s my main objective.

‘I want to take it one day at a time and achieve big things at Arsenal.’
