Arsenal agreed to sign Fabio Vieira from Porto for €40million… He is already in London

Arsenal have agreed to sign FC Porto attacking midfielder, Fabio Vieira for a transfer fee worth around €40 million according to reports.

Futballnews gathered that Fabio Vieira has arrived in London a couple of hours ago to complete other aspects of the deal including medical. While Arsenal are currently going through the paperwork with Vieira’s representatives.

After his medical on Friday, June 17, the 22-year-old Portuguese attacking midfielder is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Premier League club which will keep him at the club until June 30, 2027.

Reports in the United Kingdom claimed that Arsenal would pay a guarantee fee of €35 million before they can seal the deal. Afterward, the north London side are expected to pay €5 million in ‘achievable’ add-ons.

Just like every other major club in the Premier League, the North London side have been trying to strengthen their side ahead of a very busy 2022-2023 season.

Recall that Arsenal finished 5th last season which means that they will include Europa League football in their ever-busy English club football schedule.

Hence, an addition like Fabio Vieira who scored 7 goals and provided 16 assists in 39 games for Porto last season would go a long way to help the Premier League club to have a better season.

Once Arsenal seal Fabio Vieira’s deal in a few hours from the time of publishing this report, their attention will shift back to their quest to grab the signature of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.

Earlier today, Futballnews reported that Arsenal have made a bid for the services of the Brazilian forward whose transfer market value is said to be around £50 million.

Though the bid Arsenal submitted for the services of Jesus is said to be below the price tag placed on the striker, the north London side are said to be confident of landing the Brazilian forward this summer.

The good news is that Jesus who is also wanted at Chelsea has reportedly made it clear that he wants to reunite with coach Mikel Arteta who worked as an assistant coach at Manchester City before he became Arsenal’s coach in 2019.

Hence, all things being equal, Gabriel Jesus could be Arsenal’s third signing this summer after the arrival of 19-year-old forward Marquinhos, from Sao Paulo and the potential arrival of Fabio Vieira from Porto.
