The return of William Saliba from Marseille makes Mari the fifth-choice centre-back for Mikel Arteta. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Udinese and has been linked with a permanent move to the Italian club.
But there has been no movement as of yet and Mari has featured in pre-season for the Gunners. The 28-year-old’s contract at the Emirates does not expire until 2024.
Torreira hasn’t played a game for Arsenal in two years. He travelled with the squad on their pre-season tour to the USA before leaving early due to personal reasons.
He is in the last year of his contract and seems to have no future in north London. Torreira impressed at Fiorentina last season but they did not take up the option to sign him.
