Done deal as Mikel Arteta completed Arsenal first summer signing of Brazilian winger, announcement soon
Arsenal have completed the signing of Sao Paulo winger Marquinhos, it has been reported.
The club’s struck a deal hitting around the £3 million mark for the Brazilian teenager, who has signed a deal until June 2027.
It was previously reported that Wolves would make the deal harder to complete as they had reportedly signed a pre-agreement with the player, however these obstacles appear to have subsided and Arsenal have now completed the deal.
Fabrizio Romano, respected football journalist, reported the news this morning.
It’s yet to be seen if Marquinhos will provide competition for the likes of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli out wide for Arsenal or if he will be sent back out on loan.
The 19 year old adds to Arsenal’s growing Brazilian influence at the club, with Martinelli, Gabriel already at the club and the reported incoming of Gabriel Jesus.
