Centre-back Mari arrived from Brazilian club Flamengo during the 2019/20 winter transfer window and made two Premier League starts for the Gunners.

He helped them to a 1-0 home win over West Ham United before suffering a season-ending ankle injury in his following appearance against Manchester City.

Right-back Cedric made the switch from Southampton in January after making more than 100 Premier League appearances for the south-coast club.

He scored on his debut for Mikel Arteta’s side against Norwich City and went on to play another four matches before the end of the season.
