Fabio Vieira is excited about the prospect of working with Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe at Arsenal who insists he is a similar player to current Gunners star Martin Odegaard.

Arsenal on Tuesday confirmed the arrival of the 22-year-old attacking midfielder from Porto after agreeing a £34million deal with the Portuguese giants.

He becomes the club’s second signing this summer following the arrival of Marquinhos from Sao Paulo – and Arsenal are also inking a deal to sign Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus.

Vieira, who scored six goals and provided 14 assists for Porto last season, joins Mikel Arteta’s attacking options alongside academy products Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah after facing the pair at last year’s European Under-21 Championship.

“I had to meet her at the Euros,” recalled Vieira, speaking to Arsenal’s official website. “They are both quality players. Arsenal have top players and I’m here now to help the team achieve their goals.”

Vieira will join Arsenal’s attacking options, which also include Saka and Odegaard – the latter who joined the club on a permanent deal last summer after initially impressing on loan in the 2020-21 season.

And the Portuguese believes he’s already a similar player to his new teammate.

“I’m also a fan of Bukayo Saka and Smith Rowe,” he continued. “I like the way they play. Odegaard is quite like me.’

Arsenal’s efforts to bring Vieira to north London caught many fans by surprise as Arsenal agreed a deal with Porto last Thursday.

For fans unsure of what he will offer next season, Vieira has provided an exciting glimpse into what to expect from him.

“I’m an attacking player looking for space between the lines to end plays with either assists or goals,” he said.

“I think those are the main attributes that Arsenal fans can expect from me. I will always give everything for the team.”
