Arsenal Closing In On The Signing Of 19-Year Old Brazilian Winger

The summer transfer window is set to be a busy one for Arsenal as they will be looking to sign several players in order to improve their squad. Mikel Arteta has already made it clear that there will be at least three incomings in the summer. Reports in Brazil indicate that talks between Arsenal and Sau Paulo for 19-year-old Marquinhos are ongoing.

The Brazilian wonder kid has been one of the brightest talents from South America and has since been dubbed as the next Neymar. The agreement in nearing after the two clubs held another round of talks yesterday and a fee of around 3 million pounds is said to have been quoted by Sao Paulo. The club is keen to cash on the winger this summer so as to avoid losing him for free next year.

His style of play is close to that of Gabriel Martinelli but he has a lot of improvements to make in terms of finishing, in the few matches that he has played for Sau Paulo he has kept defenders in check through his high pace and dribbling skills. Should Arsenal complete the signing then they will have begun their summer transfer business on a high note.
