Arteta reveals one player that’s becoming very popular at Arsenal despite this limitation

Marquinhos is one player who is becoming important at the Emirates. Arteta reveals that even though the 19-year-old doesn't speak English, his popularity at the Emirates is growing. The Brazilian was one of five of Arsenal's summer recruits, but as the other four were in the first team environment, he has been impressive with the Arsenal U21. A few days ago, he was given his first start, and that's what every Gunner has been talking about.

"I was looking more at the faces of the rest of the staff and players," said Arteta of Marquinhos' debut goal.

"He’s a player that is very popular, with no English, just with his smile and attitude, he has won the respect and admiration of everybody here."


Edu may have given Arteta another option for his right wing by failing to sign a reliable winger to deputise Saka at left back for only £3 million. Arsenal's start of the season has been nothing short of amazing. They have 5 league wins in 6 and this weekend against Brentford they could make it 6 league wins in 7.
