Arsenal has confirmed the signing of midfielder, Fabio Vieira from Porto for £34m including add-ons.
Portuguese 22-year-old player is the Gunners’ third summer arrival after goalkeeper Matt Turner and Brazil forward Marquinhos. Arsenal will pay £30m upfront plus £4m in performance-related add-ons.
Vieira, who underwent his medical in north London last week, won the player of the tournament award at last year’s European U21 Championship.
Vieira will add further creative talent to Arsenal’s ranks, with the highly-rated midfielder having laid on a league-high 14 assists in the 2021/22 Primera Liga campaign.
“The club informs the market that it has reached an agreement with Arsenal FC for the signing, on a permanent basis, of Fabio Vieira for the amount of 40 million Euros,” said a Porto statement on the weekend.
