Marquinhos is rumored to be leaving Arsenal on loan this summer, with the club keen for him to gain more regular playing time before competing with our first team.
The Brazilian joined from Sao Paulo this summer in a £3 million move and has spent pre-season with the club on their US tour, where he has played against some top sides.
Despite his enormous potential, he is expected to be allowed to leave on loan, similar to William Saliba, who has three successful loan spells in Ligue 1 and is now deemed ready to take up a role in our first team this season.
The Mirror does not specify where the 18-year-old will play next season but expects him to spend the next few years on loan until he is deemed ready.
It should come as no surprise that not everyone arriving from Brazil at the age of 18 can expect to have the same impact as Gabriel Martinelli.
We have a number of other wingers in the squad right now, with Nicolas Pepe among those who have yet to break into the first team, so it makes sense to get him some European experience before seeing what he can bring to the Premier League.
