Wolves are reportedly considering legal action over the Arsenal’s agreement to sign Brazilian youngster Marquinhos.

The Gunners are thought to have agreed a £2.5m fee to sign the 19-year-old with the player already heading to London to complete a medical.

However, the Daily Mail are now claiming that Wolves already had a pre-contract agreement in place to sign Marquinhos and are now considering legal action against Arsenal and Sao Paulo.

The wingers contract is reportedly up this summer and therefore was able to agree terms with other clubs, something that Wolves reportedly took advantage of.

However, Arsenal were then offered the chance to sign the player for a fee which could lead to an interesting legal battle between Wolves, Arsenal and Sao Paulo.

Meanwhile, Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has admitted it is going to be ‘another interesting summer’ for the club this summer.

“Yeah I think it’s going to be another interesting summer this one.

“We obviously brought in quite a number of players in the last summer window.

“I know for a fact the club tried hard to bring some players in in January and we just couldn’t get them over the line.

“But it’s one of those things, hindsight is a wonderful, wonderful thing because we could have got fourth without signing anyone and people would have said it’s because [of the decisions in January].”

On whether Arsenal boss Arteta discusses transfers with his team, Ramsdale added: “No, he doesn’t openly say that.

“It’s just one of those things, you’re at a football club and you hear rumours around the training ground and things like that.

“But we’ll look to sign some players in the summer which will be good and obviously, when you’re playing in Europe and you’re playing in the Premier League, you do need very good squad depth.

“Although we didn’t have a huge amount of players, whenever the players did step in, I never felt – and we never felt – that we were losing any quality or anything like that.

“So I think something the manager did really well is that the ones who stayed and the ones who played, he knew he could rely on all of them.”
