Vieira makes a move
Arsenal are close to completing a deal to capture Porto playmaker Fabio Vieira, according to football.london.
The north Londoners have been watching the Portugal under-21 international for some time and have now agreed to pay €40 million (£34 million) to get him to the Emirates Stadium. As the Gunners try to take advantage of Porto’s continuous financial woes, this is less than the player’s release clause, which is reported to be approximately £42 million.
: Who is Fabio Vieira, and where did he come from? The £34 million-rated teenager is ‘going to London’ to finalize an Arsenal deal.
The 22-year-old has been linked with moves to Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur, but Arsenal appear to be the frontrunners to sign him this summer. Last season, Vieira scored seven goals and added 16 assists, demonstrating that he has the ability to compete with Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe.

Tielemans’ most recent
Despite agreeing a contract to recruit the aforementioned Vieira, Arsenal will still try to buy Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano. “They (Arsenal) are still working on Youri Tielemans as top priority for the midfield,” he remarked on his YouTube channel.
The north Londoners are interested in signing the Belgian international, who has one year left on his contract at the King Power Stadium, according to football.london.
Napoli are open to listen to bids for Arsenal target Fabian Ruiz, according to Italian journalist Paolo Bargiggia. “The club (Napoli) is, in fact, taking a strong stance on Fabián,” Bargiggia stated of the Spaniard via Sport Bible.
“The player wishes to leave the team, therefore Napoli will consider serious offers, or he will be consigned to the bench, since he will be removed from the club’s plans.” I rekindle Arsenal and Juventus’ interest, even if the ‘Bianconeri’ are unable to make offers for €30-40 million.”
