The Gunners have been in the transfer market shopping for a defender to bolster the current squad defensively, and according to reports PSG man Marquinhos could be on his way to the Emirates. The player is reportedly frustrated with his lack of playing time at PSG, despite playing 29 Ligue 1 games for PSG last season.
The Brazil international defender is considered a brilliant defender, who is also fantastic in possession. He successfully completed 93.3% of his passes in his 29 Ligue 1 games last season.
The PSG defender would be a perfect signing for Arsenal because of his versatility on the pitch of play, which interest Arsene Wenger in every player.
Marquinhos could potentially play as a centre half and full back at Arsenal, providing cover for injured defenders.
Report indicates that top clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, and Barcelona are also interested in Marquinhos, and it is difficult to point out where the player will be playing next season and which team is leading the race to sign him at this point.
I’m of the opinion Arsenal would have a good chance to sign him, given that Arsenal has a desperate need for a defender, the boss will push hard to get Marquinhos to North London.
