Arsenal’s move to Fabio Vieira will not affect their pursuit of Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans this summer.

The Gunners have agreed a £30m deal plus £4m in add-ons to bring Vieira to the Emirates in a shock transfer that surfaced on Thursday.

The Porto attacking midfielder has signed a five-year deal and has flown to London, where he is expected to undergo a medical today.

He will become Arsenal’s third signing of the summer following the deal for Brazilian youngster Marquinhos, with the club also becoming confident of completing a move for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, who is keen to join north London.

Arsenal are also set to step up their pursuit of Tielemans despite the arrival of Vieira, according to the Evening Standard.

Tielemans has one year left on his current contract at King Power Stadium and although Arsenal originally expressed a desire to play in the Champions League, Arsenal are said to still be confident of landing a deal with the player.

The Belgium international plays a deeper role in midfield than Vieira, who predominantly played a No. 8 or No. 10 for Porto.

Arsenal expect to secure a £25million deal with Tielemans’ international commitments with Belgium, now over for the summer.

Arsenal have been in talks with the former Monaco star since January and are in pole position to sign a player who has also been of interest to Tottenham and Liverpool.
