Arseblog News understands that Barcelona’s Brazilian international forward Gio Queiroz will sign for the club this summer but spend next summer on loan at Everton.
The highly rated 19-year-old spent last season on loan at Levante in Spain. Gio had lots of interested clubs this summer having grown unhappy about her treatment at Barca.
Gio and Arsenal have been in discussions for a little while with the Brazilian keen to join the club but also keen to prioritise game time ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
As a result, my understanding is that she’s signed a long-term deal with Arsenal but will spend next season on loan at Everton ahead of the World Cup.
