The 22-year-old former Porto midfielder promised Gunners fans he would work hard
Discussing his move to the Emirates, the midfielder told the DailyMirror: ‘I have always been happy at Porto but this chance is important for any professional.
“Playing in the Premier League will not be easy and I only promise to work, work, work.”
“My agent worked on the agreement between the two clubs and I accepted the agreement because it was important for all parties.
“I’ve always watched the Premier League on TV.”
The Gunners are yet to confirm the deal for midfielder Vieira, but he has completed his medical
The Gunners have yet to officially confirm the deal, but he has undergone a medical at the club’s London Colney training ground.
Vieira, a versatile attacking midfielder, rose through the youth ranks at Porto and helped them win the Portuguese title last season.
The Portugal Under-21 international enjoyed a breakthrough year last season, racking up six goals and 14 assists in 27 league appearances for Porto to help the club win a 30th league title.
No Arsenal player has been involved in so many goals in the 2021-22 Premier League campaign and Vieira joins a promising group of creative talent including Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard.
Arteta has already signed teenage striker Marquinhos and Vieira’s arrival is a huge boost, given that Arsenal’s Big Six rivals have moved quickly to strengthen in key areas.
