Arsenal report: TWO new Brazilians on January wishlist



Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta applauds the supporters after the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium on October 1, 2022 in London, United Kingdom.

Arsenal are ready to extend their Brazilian influence even further with two new signings from South America.

The Gunners have become steeped in Samba over recent seasons, particularly since the introduction of former Invincible Edu Gaspar as technical director. Gabriel Martinelli, whom Edu is very close to, was one of Edu’s first recommended signings after his arrival in 2019 – before Chelsea stalwart David Luiz belatedly replaced outgoing captain Laurent Koscielny in the same summer.

Another former Blues star, Willian, joined Mikel Arteta weeks before defender Gabriel, while this summer Gabriel Jesus followed young Marquinhos through the London Colney door.

Arsenal’s recruitment policy of picking stars from the Selecao may not be over yet either, with a well-known transfer insider fabrice romano (opens in a new tab) stating that the Gunners want two more Brazilians.
