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.
With thanks to Tom Garry at the Telegraph, who also worked on this story.
Have heard season tickets sold out immediately after the news. 🙂
Good luck! What kind of player is she?
She’s really good. . I watched her at the Olympics, though she was always coming from the bench.
Her play style is very similar to Alisha Lehmann of Westham.
Welcome to Arsenal, Gio Queiroz. Hope you get on well at Everton.
Interesting signing but I really want to hear about a CDM…
Speaks English and just won the first Female – Samba Gold
Can’t wait to see her play.
Are they targeting talented players at a younger age in case transfer fees become a bigger thing in women’s football?
I think it’s also age profile of our team, we have a lot of 25-29 and getting the 19 year old ready to take over is sensible. Although that Kiera Walsh deal being around 400k is interesting.
Are we going for Walsh?
Thought she was heading to Barcelona.
What the hell is going on?!
I didn’t know owls were allowed to comment on Arseblog
It’s a real free for owl around here these days
Edu signing only Brazilians seems to work for strikers at least!
I see that the Brazilian effect doesn’t not only apply to the men’s team….. Not a bad thing though
I think no news concerning new DM?
Almost the same problem with the male team want to happen with the female team.
Any news about obedorf? We can beat anything with her walti pairing in the as double DM
I know its a pipe dream…but Germany has played Turkey and Bulgaria in the past week and Oberdorf was not even on the bench. Maybe negotiations ?
Yeah…just a pipe dream
Oberdorf just signed a new deal with Wolfsburg so she would be more expensive than Walsh with her world record transfer fee
