Arsenal open talks with Sao Paulo for winger Marquinhos


Arsenal have opened talks with São Paulo over a deal for winger Marquinhos.

The highly rated 19-year-old is keen to make the move and São Paulo want to strike a deal for risk of losing the teenager for free when his contract runs out, says the Daily Mail

Marquinhos signed a five year contract in 2019 but FIFA have refused to accept it as he was underage when he signed so the contract is only valid for three years under normal regulations.

Sao Paulo have tried to convince him to sign an extension but he has turned down their offer.

Arsenal are offering around £2.9million and negotiations are advancing after a further meeting on Friday.

Wolves and Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest but Arsenal are expected to finalise terms in the coming days.
