Arsenal’s new summer signing, has taken to Instagram to add fuel to the fire that he’s set to play some part against Fulham today.
Marquinhosis yet to make his Premier League debut but has been featuring for the under-21s, while Mikel Arteta has also confirmed he’ll stay around the squad this season rather than go on loan.
And after the Arsenal boss allowed Nicolas Pepe to go out on loan this week, speculation has been rife that Marquinhos is going to be the man to replace him. And taking to his Instagram story just earlier today, Marquinhos has shared an image which suggests he is indeed part of the squad.
Of course, this is but speculation but with Marquinhos left out of the under-21s last night, it would make sense to see the Brazilian striker involved today.
The game represents a big chance for Arsenal to continue their fine start to the season. Mikel Arteta’s side are picking up win after win and a game at home against a newly-promoted side is a massive opportunity.
Our View: Marquinhos Could Get Minutes
Mikel Arteta will be hoping things are going smoothly this afternoon so that he can bring Marquinhos and other players on the fringes into the game.
The Gunners boss will expect his team to be comfortably in the lead against the Cottagers. Arsenal are more than capable of putting this game to bed early on and with that, we could see Marquinhos get minutes.
Certainly, the young winger seems to have hinted he is indeed going to be involved.
