The news comes from Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepúlveda:

Translated, and without emojis, it says: “EXCLUSIVE. Fábio Vieira will be a @Arsenal player. There is already an agreement between @FCPorto and #Arsenal.

“The amount of the termination clause is 40 million euros.

“Fábio Vieira is going to London in the next few hours.”

It is unclear at this stage whether Arsenal have met the full €40m release clause or if they have reached another deal with Porto, and it should be noted that some in the replies to the tweet above Above claim that Vieira’s release clause is actually 50 million euros.

This was later reinforced when Fabrizio Romano got involved in things:

The 22-year-old is touted as one of the best young talents to ever come through at Porto with comparisons made to Bruno Fernandes, although those who have watched him regularly believe he is a player who will become many, many better. than Manchester United man.

There has been little to no noise around this player or any connection to Arsenal before that.

Aged 22 at the end of May, Vieira is under contract until 2025 and has scored seven goals, with 16 assists, in 39 games.

He is currently valued at around £22.5m, with some saying even at €40m he would be a steal.
