Arthur has been called up by Brazil for their friendlies against the United States and El Salvador in September.

Barcelona’s summer signing joins team-mate Philippe Coutinho in Tite’s squad after impressing since arriving at the Camp Nou from Gremio. However, there’s no place (yet at least) for Malcom.

It’s not the first time that Arthur has received an international call-up, but he has yet to make his debut and will be hoping to get some minutes in September.

Arthur said he’s “very happy” with his call-up in a post on Twitter.

Tite has come up with a few surprises in his squad. There’s no Gabriel Jesus or Ederson, but Andreas Pereira gets a first call-up and youngster Lucas Paquetá is also included.
