Shocked Arsenal fans hail imminent £30m signing of Fabio Vieira

‘Typical Wenger transfer policy… it’s silently done’: Shocked Arsenal fans hail imminent £30m signing of Fabio Vieira and praise Mikel Arteta for learning from legendary boss by sealing deal ‘under the radar’

  • Arsenal fans are over the moon at the imminent arrival of Fabio Vieira from Porto
  • Vieira, 22, is set to join the Gunners for £30million on a five-year contract
  • Supporters have hailed boss Mikel Arteta for keeping the signing under wraps

Arsenal fans are delighted by the club’s imminent £30million signing of Portuguese starlet Fabio Vieira, and also shocked that the Gunners successfully kept the deal under wraps until the very end. 

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has reportedly cut short his holiday on the Greek island of Mykonos to fly into London and sign a five-year deal at the Emirates on Friday.  

Vieira came through the youth ranks at Porto and helped them win the Portuguese title last season.

Gunners fans compared boss Mikel Arteta to Arsene Wenger over their transfer successes

The Portugal Under-21 international enjoyed a breakthrough year last season, amassing six goals and 14 assists in 27 league appearances for Porto to help the club claim a 30th league title.

His credentials have left Gunners fans salivating and hailing boss Mikel Arteta’s first signing of the summer window, with one supporter even likening the transfer to those made by the club’s managerial legend Arsene Wenger. 

‘It’s typical Wenger transfer policy in (sic) Arsenal.. It’s silently done,’ wrote one Twitter user, while another praised Arteta for ‘signing one of Portugal’s most exciting prospects… under the radar’.

Wenger’s biggest transfer coup was arguably in luring Sol Campbell from fierce rivals Tottenham on a shock free transfer in 2001.

Vieira was hailed as an ‘incredible signing’ by one Arsenal fan, who added that ‘out of the blue transfers just hit different’, with another going as far as to compare Vieira to Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva. 

‘Hyped to be the next big thing in Portugal. Fair play to Arsenal for keeping this one under the radar and getting it done,’ wrote GoonerViews.

Vieira’s arrival at the Emirates is just the start of Arsenal’s transfer business, with Arteta reportedly still keen on signing Youri Tielemans from Leicester.
