Fabio Vieira Is Set To Complete A Move To Arsenal..

Arsenal are set to sign Porto attacking midfielder Fabio Vieira in a deal worth up to €40 million, multiple outlets have revealed. 

The 22-year-old is due to have a medical in London on Friday and will finalise terms on what is expected to be a five-year contract.

Vieira has scored seven goals and registered 16 assists in 39 appearances for Porto and can play primarily as a No.10 or off the right flank.

He is yet to make a senior international appearance for Portugal but has featured 20 times for their Under-21s.

Vieira had a release clause of €50m but sources have confirmed Porto accepted a lower offer from Arsenal and barring any last-minute issues, the deal is expected to be completed in the coming days.

After confirming the signing of 19-year-old forward Marquinhos from Sao Paulo on a long-term contract last Monday, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, is also looking to recruit in other areas. Vieira, 22, is an attacking midfielder who has sometimes played as a second striker.
