Report explains what Fabio Vieira will earn with his new Arsenal contract
A report has emerged detailing the wages that new Arsenal signing Fabio Vieira will earn following his move from Porto.
An agreement between the Gunners and Porto has been confirmed by the Portuguese outfit, but that is just over the fee.
Journalist Charles Watts says that Arsenal may not officially confirm the deal until next week, because of all the formalities which need to be signed off.
The Times say that Vieira has been offered a contract worth £46,000 per week at the Emirates Stadium.
Report shares Fabio Vieira wages at Arsenal
They say that he is about to put pen to paper on a five-year contract, sealing a £34 million transfer to north London.
An initial fee of £30 million plus £4.3 million in add-ons for Vieira has been agreed and his wages seem very affordable within Mikel Arteta’s salary structure.
There is plenty of scope for that to go up if he develops and fulfils his potential as one of the most promising young players in the world.
The report also outlines that there is no obvious place for Vieira in Arteta’s first choice line up at present, but that could help him settle in.
It would ease the pressure and also allow him to use his versatility to slot into a variety of different roles, offering invention from the bench.
The Europa League also means he can be eased in more gently, and Arsenal fans will be excited about the prospect of seeing their new buy.
