Arsenal are expected to agree a loan deal to send Marquinhos out on loan to English Championship side Norwich City.
The Gunners agreed a bargain deal to land the Brazilian winger in the summer, before opting to keep him in and around London Colney to aid him in settling into life in England. That worked a treat with him enjoying his time with the development squad and was rewarded with minutes in the first-team, where he enjoyed a goal and assist on his debut in the Europa League.
With less opportunities to rotate the squad with the serious end of the Europa League and Premier League in our sights, Marquinhos now looks set to get the chance to play in the Championship with Norwich, the Metro reports. The Canaries are currently in a dogfight for the playoff positions, and it could prove to be a great experience for the 19 year-old.
Following Leandro Trossard’s arrival from Brighton, it makes sense for the youngster to leave in search of more regular playing time, especially given his limited minutes this term despite Emile Smith Rowe’s injury absences. Marquinhos looks a great talent however, and it will be interesting to see how much of an impression he can have for Norwich before hopefully coming back in the summer to challenge in our first-team.
Do you think he will set the Championship alight?

He will smash it at Norwich who play an attacking football style.
In the past I would have been concerned about him ‘getting a kicking’ but most teams now realise they have to play football so that when they get promoted they dont immediately go down again..
Best of luck to him and hopefully he can come back as our own Mudryk in a year or two !
Norwich is now officially my third favorite team after Reims and marseille.
Wish Norwich could have taken both Marquinhos and Lonkango, while we bring in Caicedo and Mamba
Good for the boy. He will gain valuable experience and can return more matured to the benefit of Arsenal. If Norwich gain promotion may a season long extension could be secured to gain PL experience. Good news all round…
My oppion that’s just crazy ,he cost us £7 million and should be playing if Jesus is injured or a 442 etc through time, plus if Eddie gets injured who’s his backup player …oh the man we just loaned out , cmon guys.
Have not been impressed since he joined except the Euro game in which he scored. Since then he’s been ordinary.
His skills are no more than what we have in the academy. Don’t know why we chased him. He has no pace and has no special skills.
Seems we have another Joe Campbell case
