'Next step': Fabrizio Romano shares who Arsenal will focus on signing now, after landing Fabio Vieira
Arsenal have completed the signing of Portugal Under-21 midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto.
The Gunners announced the 22-year-old’s arrival on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Sky Sports, Arsenal will pay £30million up front plus £4million in performance-related add-ons.
Vieira has signed a long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium.
He is Arsenal’s third signing of the summer, after goalkeeper Matt Turner and winger Marquinhos.
However, it doesn’t look as though the Gunners will slow down in the market any time soon.
Arsenal are in desperate need of bolstering their attacking ranks.
Eddie Nketiah is currently the only senior centre-forward in the Gunners squad.
Fabrizio Romano, writing on Twitter, said Arsenal will now focus their attention on signing Gabriel Jesus.
