Technical director Edu said: “We’re delighted to have completed the transfer with Sao Paulo, as Marquinhos was a player we had been watching for a while. At 19, he is still very young, so he is a player for the future. We look forward to Marquinhos now joining us for pre-season, making his new home, and continuing to grow and develop with us.”
Player for future, if ever
Wonder if he’ll go out on loan
When I googled him last week it looks like he doesn’t even play for their first team so guessing this really is one for the future.
Do we still have all that work permit shenanigans after Brexit ? Do we need to find a dodgy uni to get him a degree in bioengineering?
When does the future start btw. That’s him Tavares,Lokonga, Patino, etc.
My guess is that he plays for the U23s and at very best gets a few minutes in the league cup or Europa League group stage.
I think we’ll keep him rather than loan him this year just because the adjustment from Brazil is pretty hard in general for a young player and we probably want him to make that adjustment with a surrounding support system, including all of our other Brazilians, rather than shipping him off on loan somewhere around Europe.
He’ll quickly turn into a player for the now when our two strikers are dead b January
My belief is that this guy will have literally 0 impact for us and end up spending the next 2-3 years on loan while we desperately try to flog him to any Spanish or Portuguese team willing to take a punt on him
He won’t feature at all. Wolves were going to loan him to grasshoppers fc……
Wolves crying again
This proves we’re not slow and indecisive in the market.
This is our big Marquee-nhos signing.
So all we need is some squad fillers and the window is done.
Trust the process bb.
A deal for Wolves to sign him was thought to be so far down the line that a loan to Grasshoppers was already being lined up for next season.
And here we have the reason Marquinhos said, nah fuck Wolves, man
of course he aint our main focus he is a 3m player. Why not wait until the window closes before coming up with such negative talk.
We’re saving the best for last, everyone knows Arsenal fans love a last minute drama.
Oh for sure. We’ll take 1 from 6 in our first two matches before they unveil Gabriel Jesus.
