‘A lot of quality’: Bruno Fernandes gives his verdict on Arsenal summer signing

Bruno Fernandes believes Fabio Vieira will be a fantastic signing for Arsenal after joining from FC Porto this summer.

The Gunners paid over £30 million to bring the 22-year-old midfielder to The Emirates in June in order to improve Mikel Arteta’s options in the middle of the pitch ahead of the new season.

Last season, Vieira was a constant presence in the FC Porto team, scoring six goals and making 14 assists in 27 league games to help his team win the title in his native motherland.

The Portugal Under-21 midfielder now joins Fernandes as one of the country’s Premier League talents, and Vieira will look to make an impression at The Emirates next season.

After impressive performances for both the Portugal Under-21s and FC Porto in recent seasons, Manchester United playmaker Fernandes is optimistic that Vieira can “shine” for the Gunners.

When asked about Arsenal’s signing of Vieira, who signed a “long-term contract” with the club, Fernandes said: “I welcome all Portuguese players who go abroad, I hope he can shine to the fullest, except against me.

“Fabio has a lot of quality and has been demonstrating that, whether in the FC Porto is in the Under-21s, he has had good numbers and good performances.

“I hope he succeeds like all the Portuguese out there. We have to start valuing what is ours and I hope that Fábio manages to be as good as possible, despite of waiting to stay ahead.”

Vieira came up through FC Porto’s junior system and made his first-team debut in 2020. With the Portuguese team, he won two league titles and the Taca de Portugal.

The midfielder has yet to play for Portugal’s senior squad, although he has scored 13 goals in 21 appearances for his country’s Under-21 team since his debut in 2019.

Vieira might make his Premier League debut for Arsenal when the Gunners face Crystal Palace on August 5th.
