Emerging talent Marquinhos has begun life at Arsenal brightly, with a report suggesting that he has surprised everyone at the club.
THE LOWDOWN: UNEXPECTED START
Marquinhos arrived at Arsenal in the summer from Sao Paulo, spending more time with the U21s. Although he was with the first team during the preseason, he did not feature in any game until the opening match of the Europa League against FC Zurich in Switzerland last week.
Prior to that first team debut, his performance with the youth side, coupled with his previous efforts in pre-season, changed the mind of Arteta and the rest of the team to send him out on loan because he has adapted adequately in London.
THE LATEST: SURPRISES
According to Goal Brazil, Marquinhos has surprised everyone with his displays at Arsenal since his arrival.
Upon his arrival from Sao Paulo, Marquinhos, who has trained with Arsenal’s senior squad a couple of times this season, was expected to go out on loan but his performances literally change everyone’s view of him.
The report in his native Brazil claims that Marquinhos has surprised many at the Emirates. As revealed in the report as well, he has possibly exceeded Arteta’s expectations, especially after his stunning performance against FC Zurich in his first-team debut.
THE VERDICT: MORE OF HIM
After that excellent display in the Europa League opener, many Arsenal fans want to see more of Marquinhos now, but a report claims that the Gunners are considering sending him away on loan in January.
However, at this moment in time, Marquinhos can’t leave for any side except there is a new winger coming in by January. With his efforts in that Zurich game, he showed that he can be trusted as Bukayo Saka’s deputy on Arteta’s right wing.
If Marquinhos continues to perform exceedingly, it will be interesting to see what will happen to him in January.
