Abstract
The pseudoscalar mesons $\eta(547)$, $\eta^{\prime}(958)$ and $
 \eta^{\prime\prime}(1410)$ are studied in the gluonium-quarkonium mixing framework. The SU(3)-flavor symmetry breaking and annihilation effects are considered. Estimates of the glueball mass and of the ms/mu ratio are provided. The system $\eta(1295)$ and $\eta(1490)$ is also considered in a mixing scheme.
