Arsenal Signs Fabio Vieira from F.C Porto
The 22-year-old has yet to win a senior cap for Portugal but was voted player of the tournament at last year’s European Under-21 Championship. He provided 14 assists in the Primeira Liga last season. Fabio Vieira also scored six goals in 27 league outings as he helped Porto claim the top-flight title in Portugal.
He has been capped 21 times by Portugal Under-21s and will become the Gunners’ third summer arrival, following USA goalkeeper Matt Turner and teenage Brazilian forward Marquinhos.
