Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira.
The 22-year old attacking midfielder is reportedly set to fly to London to finalise personal terms after the Gunners agreed to pay £35 million for him.
Vieira came through the youth ranks at Porto, progressing through the ranks and making his first team debut two years ago.
He made 39 appearances for them in all competitions last season, scoring 7 goals and providing 16 assists.
Although he has yet to appear for the senior national side, he has been capped 20 ties by Portugal at under-21 level, and was named player of the final s at the 2021 UEFA European Championships.
It is reported that he is set to sign a five year deal with the Gunners.
He will be the second summer signing for the Gunners following the arrival of teenage Brazilian winger Marquinhos.
