Good morning Arsenal fans

Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira underwent a medical at Arsenal on Friday afternoon ahead of a £30m move to the Emirates.

The Gunners agreed a transfer fee for the 22-year-old earlier this week, and are also understood to have agreed personal terms with the player.

Assuming his medical runs smoothly, Vieira will pen a five-year contract with the Premier League club.

Porto then released a statement informing the market of an agreement to sell Fabio Vieira to Arsenal.

The Portuguese club announced that a ‘deal was complete for the amount of €40m, and of these, €5m are dependent on achievement of sports objectives.’

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s failure to qualify for the Champions League has resulted in them missing out on Yves Bissouma.

The Brighton ace has joined Tottenham for £25m.

Bissouma was keen to join a club competing in the Champions League and is excited to work under Antonio Conte.

And Spurs are hoping to use the allure of Champions League football to steal Napoli striker Victor Osimhen from under Arsenal’s nose.

The Gunners had an initial bid of £51million rejected by the Serie A side earlier this week as they eye a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

Man Utd have also been linked with a move for the Nigerian.

However, according to journalist Lorenzo Amuso, Spurs could well get there ahead of them both.

Finally, Arsenal have reportedly had a £25m offer for Lisandro Martinez rejected by Ajax.

But the Gunners remain undeterred and will press forward with another bid, according to The Athletic.

It should be smooth sailing for the Gunners if they hash out terms with Ajax as the defender is keen on joining the North Londoners, the report adds.
