Arsenal are ready to confirm their first two transfers of the summer transfer window in the form of one arrival and one departure.
The Gunners have reportedly reached an agreement with Brazilian side Sao Paulo in order to bring in young star Marquinhos this transfer window.
The 19-year-old is set to join the club for a fee of around 3.5m euros, and pen a five year deal with the Gunners, tying him to the club until 2027.
The deal is not thought to affect any further summer business.

Marquinhos is set to follow the path of compatriot Gabriel Martinelli, and should he have anything like the impact of the current Gunner, he will certainly be one to watch for the future.
Mavropanos on the move
Meanwhile, the departure of Konstantinos Mavropanos is also expected to be announced in the coming days, with Stuttgart able to activate their obligation to buy on the Greek defender after they avoided relegation.

The fee will be just below £3m, and there are reports that suggest a quick profit could be set to be made by the Bundesliga outfit, with West Ham reportedly eyeing up a £17m move for the soon to be ex-Arsenal man.
