‘Full agreement reached’ Arteta’s first summer signing on way to Arsenal

Arsenal have reportedly agreed a deal to bring Brazilian winger Marquinhos to Europe – and to the Emirates

The season is nearly over and the transfer window is only a few weeks away from opening – meaning that Mikel Arteta can bring a few more players to the squad

The Spaniard let a number of squad members – that were no longer needed – leave the club in the January transfer window – meaning that he will need to buy players that will make an impact on the side – but will also add more depth.

Marquinhos broke through into the Sao Paulo side as a 18-year-old, making his debut against Flamengo in July, 2021 – and has been mightily impressive for the Brazilian side over the past couple of seasons

All the big clubs have been keeping a very close eye on his performances – his ability and his very low asking price – but it seems that Arsenal have now won the race to get a transfer deal done

Goal have claimed the Gunners have been holding serious talks with the Brazilian side about the young man for months now and that the fee for Marquinhos has been agreed – which will be around £3 million

The reports adds Arsenal have taken advantage of a contract loophole to land the forward for such a low price, with Sao Paulo reluctantly having to accept the offer due to fears he could leave for free.

He is left-footed and is comfortable on either wing – so Mikel Arteta will like that he is versatile enough to play in a number of positions – providing that a deal goes through.

When asked about Marquinhos’ departure last week, Sao Paulo head coach Rogerio Ceni said: ‘Marquinhos helps us especially when he enters the second half, he has helped more when he comes on, especially in the second half.

‘He is a good player in that three that we use in attack because he helps, recomposes, runs from deep.’
