Arsenal have signed ‘a real bargain’ – Board and fans have been told


Former Porto presidential candidate Nuno Lobo has claimed the Portuguese giants have sold Fabio Vieira to Arsenal for a bargain

Over the past FEW DAYS Arsenal stepped up their bid to complete their second major deal of the transfer window – and have managed to convince Porto into letting Vieira depart the club

Vieira, who has primarily operated as an attacking midfielder or second striker for Porto, registered six goals and 14 assists in the Primeira Liga last season – and is a player that the Gunners have been keeping a close eye on

Vieira will pen a five-year contract with the Premier League giants in a deal that will cost the club around £30 million – but it seems that the Gunners have landed themselves a real bargain according to Lobo

Lobo described the transfer as ‘a bad deal’ and spoke of his frustration at the club losing a player who has ‘the DNA of FC Porto’ – Speaking to Bola Branca, Lobo said: ‘He is one of the best players at FC Porto and leaving for this fee is a bad deal.

‘We are talking about one of the gems of FC Porto, one of the players who came from our academy. The DNA of FC Porto.

‘We lost him. It’s another piece of business that I don’t understand.

‘We are talking about ridiculous values for players who represent and are FC Porto.

‘They are from our academy and we are letting them go for unbelievable fees.’

Arsenal are also looking to bring in winger Raphinha from Leeds and striker Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, while Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez is also under consideration.

Arsenal fans are finding very difficult to get excited about a player that hasnt really done anything in the game to make us believe that he is worth so much money

But everyone is interested to see just how he copes in the Premier League
