Transfer news LIVE: Liverpool and Man Utd latest as Arsenal set to complete Pablo Mari move

Arsenal are on the verge of completing their first January transfer after Pablo Mari underwent a medical over the weekend.

The Spanish defender is set to join from Flamengo for a fee of around £7.5million to become Mikel Arteta’s first permanent signing as Gunners boss.

They will not be the only top club looking to strengthen their Premier League top four bid in the transfer market, however.

Manchester United are also keen for new signings after their frustrating season, with their search for a striker ongoing after Marcus Rashford’s injury.

Tottenham and Chelsea also want reinforcements in attack, whilst Liverpool are always on the lookout for talent despite their dominance of the top flight so far this season.

There’s also plenty of movement lower down the Premier League as Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Everton plus others look to improve their squads.
