ARSENAL reportedly look set to land young Brazilian star Marquinhos for a cut price of £3million following a legal issue.

The 19-year-old forward, who currently plays for Sao Paulo, was thought to be tied down to a five-year deal at his current club - a contract he signed in 2019.

However, FIFA have now ruled that the contract is only valid for three years - the maximum length for a player signing their first professional deal.

As a result, this means Marquinhos, who has scored three goals in 15 games this season, will become a free agent in the summer.

According to Globo Esporte, Sao Paulo have attempted to negotiate a new deal but the teenager is not thought to be interested.

The report states he is keen for a move to Europe and Arsenal appear to be the frontrunners.

Talks between Sao Paulo and the Gunners are thought to be progressing quickly.

And a £3m bid has reportedly been accepted as the North London outfit look to swoop in ahead of any other big European sides.

A deal is expected to be completed in the next few days as Arsenal prepare to beat Wolves and Atletico Madrid to Marquinhos.

The Gunners' technical director Edu is supposedly trying to form a relationship with Sao Paulo that he enjoyed while at Ajax.

During his time with the Dutch giants, he was able to bring David Neres and Antony to the club.

If Marquinhos does join Arsenal then he will link up with fellow countrymen Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli.

Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus is another Brazilian that has also been linked with a move to the Emirates.

Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli has made re-signing Saliba a top priority, however, OM chiefs are struggling to find an economic solution.

Finishing in a Champions League spot could help Marseille fund a move for the defender.

Saliba recently showed off customised Nike shoes on his Instagram story with WS2 on the back.

The 21-year-old donned the No2 shirt for Marseille and it could be a possible hint as to where he will play his football next term.

Marseille may also face competition for Saliba's signature with Serie A league leaders AC Milan rumoured to be interested.

Milan are reportedly ready to ask the Gunners whether they are willing to let him leave on loan again during the summer or even sell permanently.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has previously hinted that he would be willing to give the ace an opportunity to impress at the Emirates.
