Arsenal can ensure that they go into the World Cup break as Premier League leaders by beating Wolves at Molineux on Saturday. 

Mikel Arteta’s side have been in outstanding form so far this term, winning 11 of their 13 league games so far and losing just once.

They currently sit two points ahead of reigning champions Manchester City, who face Brentford in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Gunners’ sensational form has come as a result of impressive individual performances by the entire team, with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus particularly impressing.

One player that has struggled so far, though, is Marquinhos.

The Brazilian was signed from Sao Paolo over the summer for a fee of £3 million, but he has played only a single minute of Premier League football during his time in England so far.

Marquinhos, 19, has started two of Arsenal’s Europa League games so far, scoring and assisting on his debut against FC Zurich, but his only league appearance came as an 89th minute substitute against Brentford back in September.

Marquinhos may be loaned out if Arsenal can secure attacking reinforcements

With that in mind, it appears that Arteta is considering letting the winger leave on loan in January.

As reported by The Evening Standard, the youngster could be allowed to leave during the upcoming window, with Arteta also considering additional signings.

The report claims that The Gunners remain interested in the likes of Mykhaylo Mudryk and Facundo Torres as they look to bolster their attacking options ahead of the second half of the season.

They are unlikely to let Marquinhos leave if they cannot source a replacement, with a hectic schedule on the horizon once the World Cup break is over.

It is also suggested that Arsenal did consider sending the player straight out on loan when he first arrived in London, but they ultimately decided that it would be beneficial for him to feature in the Europa League group stages.

They may now choose to offer him out on loan in an attempt to secure regular first-team football, though.
