Arsenal To Announce Marquinhos Signing

Arsenal are expected to announce the signing of Sao Paulo winger Marquinhos this week.

The Sun says the Gunners have secured a deal in the region of £3million for the Brazilian who has broken through at Sao Paulo.

The striker, who has represented his country at Under-17 level, had a release clause of around £42.5 million and was attracting interest from numerous Premier League clubs.

However, Arsenal have only paid the £3m fee as a token gesture to the Brazilian club, in an attempt to maintain the "spectacular relationship" between the two clubs.

The Gunners could announce the signing on June 10, when the summer transfer window opens.

The deal comes as a result of technical director Edu Gaspar's connection with Sao Paulo, which is the reason the forward didn't leave the club on a free transfer.

Edu offered a nominal fee for the 19-year-old in order to maintain the solid relationship between the clubs.

The Brazilian side have a promising young squad under Rogerio Ceni, with the likes of Igor Gomes and Gabriel Sara impressing.
