New Arsenal man is not coming to England for a holiday

Fabio Vieira has assured Arsenal fans that he knows the task ahead and all he thinks about now is working hard when he joins the club.

The 22-year-old has become Mikel Arteta’s latest import from Portugal after he joined the Gunners from FC Porto.

Some Arsenal fans don’t know him very well, but he scored 6 goals and provided 14 assists from 27 league appearances last season.

He would look to make an even better contribution to Arsenal’s game in the 2022/2023 season.

However, he recognises that the competition in England is different and he is bracing himself for tougher days.

Speaking after sealing the transfer, he said, as quoted by Daily Mirror: ‘I was always happy at Porto but this chance is important for any professional.

‘Playing in the Premier League won’t be easy and I promise only to work, work, work. 

‘My agent worked on the deal between the two clubs and I accepted the deal because it was important for all parties. 

‘I have always watched the Premier League on TV.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Vieira has decent stats and Arsenal will outperform themselves next season if they can get the best from him.

His mindset is exactly what we need after that very tough campaign and we hope his hard work will be enough to help us secure a top-four spot next season.

  1. Can not blame him TBH
    Personally Only 2 places I would holiday in Britain which would be Tenby and the Lake District

  2. Like hearing his comments. He gets the difficulty of the PL and is ready to put in the extra work to be successful.

    Not familiar with him, but seems a creative player we are lacking.

    His goals and assists won’t transfer to PL, but talent and work ethic aren’t diminished by changing leagues.

  3. I don’t know why I envision him as a Pirlo-esque player.
    The guy seems to be hardworking and talented from what I have heard about him.
    Because of Xhaka’s lack of flexibility and speed, I would put him in central midfield partnering Thomas Partey.


    Martinelli. Odegaard. Saka.

    Vieira. Partey.

    Tierney. Gabriel. Saliba. Tomiyasu.


  4. A ball carrying midfielder is always going to be welcome at this moment in time.

    Whether he can do this on a consistent basis is another matter, he seems more effective in the final third, which leads me to believe a commanding defensive midfielder is on the card

  5. I see him as our new Santi Carola and the most interesting thing about this guy is that his left foot is so rich and he can even compromise the right one and moreover to me he’s more of Ozil-Carzola type of player and he have got close ball control his assists are superb. Whatever position he plays its good for us imagine ESR, Odergaard and Vieira competing for one position and Partey, Xhaka, Elneny and Tielemans for one position also if we sign the latter

  6. Seems to be decently talented and hard working. But I still think we might still have to sign a DM.

  7. OT:I just watched the video of Turner signing autographs after his last game for NE,he was about to sign an autograph but then realised the bloke was wearing a sp*ds jersey and blanked him!!😂
