Arsenal’s summer signing Fabio Vieira, this weekend, provided an insight into his preferred position on the pitch.
Of course, the young Portuguese international, Vieira, chose to take his talent to the red half north of London last month.
In something of a flash from the blue, powers at Arsenal have rushed to seal a deal for current celebrity Porto, in a move that is understood to have set the Gunners back a sum. regional money is 40 million euros (including bonuses).
Bem-vindo, Fabio ❤️

Given the substantial sums spent on his signature, Vieira will of course be expected to play a prominent role at Emirates, starting with the upcoming 2022/23 campaign.
However, in what position on the pitch can Arsenal persuaders expect to see the 22-year-old midfielder on the pitch?
Well, as alluded to above, an insight into exactly what is being offered today is none other than Vieira herself.
Speaking in an interview with The Athletic, the Portuguese was drawn to exactly where on the pitch he felt most comfortable.
And Vieira, to begin with, admits that Mikel Arteta has made it clear that he feels as though his latest midfield recruitment is capable of operating in a range of positions:
“The manager told me he knew I could play in midfield – No 8, No 10 – either on the wing, left or right. They know I’m a versatile player.”
With the pick, however, the 22-year-old confirmed he would choose to take a position behind a central striker:
“I like number 10. That’s my real position.”
“It’s very fast. But I feel ready. This is my time.”
