How Arsenal could line-up next season with new signing Fabio Vieira at the heart of midfield
How will Mikel Arteta set-up his team having given Eddie Nketiah a new deal and brought in Vieira?
Arsenal moved their Premier League ambitions to the next level with the signing of highly-rated Portuguese star Fabio Vieira.
The arrival of the midfielder gives Mikel Arteta options when it comes to setting up his team with the dynamic midfielder expected to complement Thomas Partey and Martin Ødegaard.
Last week the Gunners also confirmed the renewal of contract to striker Eddie Nketiah after a strong finish to the season saw the striker bag 10 goals and become a leading figure.
A fifth place finish in the league might have meant they missed out on Champions League football but it’s still a significant progress that Europa League football will return to the Emirates this season, they did not have that last campaign.
There have been strong links to Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus who is one of the best in the Premier League and has 58 goals in 159 Premier league games for Pep Guardiola’s side.
According to broad reports the forward is bent on moving to London and even though the likes of Tottenham are also interested, it is thought that the Brazilian prefers to work with Arteta.
Leeds United’s Raphinha is another player that has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates and it’s almost frightening to think of a very talented Arsenal side further powered by these new additions.
So, with so many players linked with a move to the Emirates already, here is how Mikel Arteta might set up his Arsenal team with the addition of midfield powerhouse Fabio Vieira at the heart of everything.
