Arsenal have announced the signing of Marquinhos from Sao Paulo on a long-term contract on the club’s official website.
Marquinhos developed through the Sao Paulo youth system, progressing into the first team squad and making his first team debut as an 18-year-old last July.
No 19, the forward made 33 first team appearances during his time with Sao Paulo and was a part of the squad which won the Compeonato Paulista in 2021.
Arsenal Technical Director Edu told Arsenal’s official website: “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.”
Arsenal can be backed at 66/1 on Betfair to win FA Cup and the Europa League next season.
