DONE DEAL: Norwich land Arsenal winger Marquinhos

Brazilian winger Marquinhos has joined Norwich City for the remainder of the 2022/23 season from Arsenal.

The teenager joined Arsenal in June 2022 on a long-term deal from São Paulo and has since made six appearances for Mikel Arteta's side.

He will wear the number 13 shirt for the Canaries where he will link up with former São Paulo team-mate Gabriel Sara once again.

Speaking at the announcement of his transfer, Marquinhos said: "I'm really happy to arrive here in Norwich and very excited to play my first game.

"I've learnt a lot as part of my adaptation here in England. It's totally different to Brazil. It's more intensive but I'm adapting well in order to help Norwich.

"I'm also really happy to get to know a new club, a new culture and a new city. The fans can expect that I'll show desire."

Head coach David Wagner also told the Norwich website: “We're delighted to have been able to add Marquinhos to our group. He is a young and exciting wide player, who wants to learn and further continue his development.

“I'd like to thank both Arsenal, for their in trust in allowing the deal to happen, and Stuart [Webber] for getting everything sorted so quickly.

“We now look forward to welcoming Marquinhos to our first-team group ahead of the remainder of the season."
