The package to sign the talented midfielder currently stands at £30 million upfront with £4 million in performance-based add-ons. Sepulveda also announced that Vieira will sign a five-year deal worth around £110,000 per week provided he agrees to these terms.
Vieira is Arsenal’s third signing this season after goalkeeper Matt Turner and Brazilian winger Marquinhos who joins from Sao Paulo.
Fabio Vieira already adds to the burgeoning list of young, attacking and creative talent at Arsenal FC. He adds to the list of Martin Ødegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Eddie Nketiah, and Emile Smith Rowe among others. So what more does he bring to the Gunners? Let’s find out.
