Fabrizio confirms 5 year Arsenal contract for Brazilian – Deal signed

It certainly seems to appear that Arsenal’s technical Director Gaspar Edu is determined to fill Mikel Arteta’s squad with a Brazilian core, as Gabriel Jesus is still looking like he will be our marquee striker signing this summer.

And now the transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has announced that the Gunners have signed an agreement with Sao Paolo for the 19 year-old winger Marquinhos at the bargain price of just €3.5m, and he is set to be given a five year deal at the Emirates.

Marquinhos will join his compatriots Martinelli, Gabriel and hopefully Jesus in the Arsenal squad next season, and knowing Edu i think we can expect further Brazilian arrivals in the future.

It remains to be seen whether Marquinhos will be quickly integrated into the Arsenal first team at 19 years of age, but it happened with Martinelli so who knows.

I bet Arteta can’t wait to get to see him in action in training…

  1. We need to look for these low budget signing in a hope that one of them could click . However we need to show ambition side by side by signing world class players. We have the golden opportunity to sign Jesus and Ganarby and Tillemans. If we fail to do so we may have to settle for 6 th place finish next season with a prospect of loosing Saka for a mere 30 million the following season

    1. I can agree with that Sunny our rc4uitment team need to get working ASAP. Okay players are away on international duty at the moment with can cause a bit of a delay. But we need to have all our big targets in by the end of June at the very latest. The players need to train together and be given time to click before the season starts. Not starting the season in the same shambolic way we did last with 10-12 players missing (okay that was covid) playing players who were in their way out or players who we’d signed a week before.

  2. Hello,we need to sign quality player because all this on ripe mango
    can not do anything for the team we need player like Gabriel jusus,tilesman,gnabry so that team we be able to qualify for champions league nest year

  3. We really need a sharp striker to support bukayo Saka and Shaka
    I believe if we sign in Gabriel Jesus the team Gabriel Jesus can still perform and give us a lot of goals and some useful midfielders to support I think we can make it work for us and collect the English premier league 🙏🙏🙏🙏🖐️

  4. Guys can you quit this Gnabry fantasy dream?, He ain’t joining us this season and not next……we ain’t in champions league a d can’t pay him what Bayern can’t afford to pay him, I mean he turned down €10m per year, insisting being paid exactly what muller and co gets…which is way too high.

    His destination…..any of the big 3 in Spain…

    Let’s be sober with our expectations please cos out coach ain’t arsene, Mourinho or any elite coach that will attract a world class player, again no champions league….to sign a ” big game player” we need to offer rediculous wages…as we did to Auba and Ozill when they were playing for a new contract….. (It’s funny how the club took the blame for their flopping, when it was obvious the fans would have called for the head of the manager had it being they were sold having, I mean no one knew they would drop their performance after a very wonderful seasons where they were our key men).

    So we only have one option, sigh “oh yes boss” sort of youngsters with great potentials like we did with Tomiyasu and maybe just one baby face signing to appease our fan base, else fans will turn on the owners again for failing to land super stars ……cos our fan base is plaqued with low memory illness

  5. Leashim you’ve talked sence all we need to do is to wait and see our central midfield and central forward upgraded ASAP since the priority per now.

  6. Brazilian core indeed MA and EG can add Rafinha from Leeds United as well, I don’t see Gnabry coming to us. We need a defensive midfielder to shield our back four and a b2b midfielder and a tall powerful striker like Scamacca.

  7. Very well then , Marquinhous it is.
    Just hope he wouldn’t be another Denilson.

  8. Experience players that’s what arsenal require to compete with big four if they want trophies
