Marquinhos could go on loan in January

Arsenal may allow Brazilian teenager Marquinhos to go out on loan in January to continue his development, provided that they can bring in another winger to replace him.

The 19-year old was signed from Palmeiras at the start of the transfer window, and told that he could have to be patient to get his chance under Mikel Arteta.

Yet, after impressing in their under 21 side, he was given his first team opportunity in the Europa League against FC Zurich, and rewarded the faith shown in him with a goal and his assist on his debut.

Nevertheless, it is recognised that it is too early to consider him as somebody regularly able to challenge for a first-team spot, and that a period where he can be playing regular football with help him get to the next stage.

The Gunners, though, will first need somebody able to provide back-up to Bukayo Saka, having already allowed Nicolas Pépé to go out on his own loan move, in his case to Ligue 1 side, Nice.
