According to The Times, Arsenal have offered Fabio Vieira a contract worth 46,000-a-week, with a 34 million deal on the market.
Arsenal would pay the 22-year-old a weekly salary of 23,000 a week, according to reports.
This was either incorrect, or Vieira had the opportunity to recoup their initial contract offer, as a 46,000-a-week deal is on the verge of being signed.
The Portuguese playmaker made a short stay in Mykonos to join the Gunners before going to north London to undergo a medical and sign his five-year contract.
Vieiras'' arrival is unlikely to have an impact on Arsenal''s quest for Youri Tielemans, while a 50-million deal for Gabriel Jesus is on course to be reached with Manchester United.
Arsenal may offer a 34 million transfer fee and a salary of 46,000-a-week, although he isn''t quite near the highest earners.
According to Spotrac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, and Pablo Mari earn more than Vieira is expected to receive.
If the special playmaker hits the ground running in the Premier League, he may have something to say about it.
Arsenal has done quite to get Vieira to agree to a 46,000-a-week deal, according to our opinion.
A marquee signing in this day and age would have every right to demand at least 100,000-a-week, especially for a player signing in a deal worth 34 million.
However, Mikel Arteta is in a position to honor the youngster by putting himself in a position to pay higher if he succeeds.
If he had surpassed 100,000-a-week or more, it would be less difficult to motivate him with financial incentives.
Edu may, according to us, give himself a pat on the back for concluding this transaction.
