Mikel Arteta makes decision on Fabio Vieira's future

Arsenal manager has reportedly approved Vieira’s sale in summer

Arsenal midfielder, Fabio Vieira, has found himself in a challenging position. The 23-year-old player has struggled to secure game time this season, with his last start dating back to November. After returning from groin surgery in February, he played just 54 minutes of Premier League football. His limited appearances have been largely restricted to cameos off the bench as Arsenal continued their pursuit of the Premier League title.

According to reports from The Athletic, Vieira’s lack of game time can be attributed to his underwhelming performances during training sessions. These performances have not impressed Mikel Arteta enough for him to move up the pecking order at Emirates Stadium.

Vieira is now reportedly one of the players who could potentially leave the club this summer. However, there may be another move that could prevent this from happening.

Potential transfer window changes at Arsenal

The transfer window may bring changes for Vieira’s status within Arsenal if academy graduate Emile Smith Rowe is sold and no replacement is brought in. Selling both midfielders in the summer window would leave Arteta short on options going into the Premier League 2024/25 season.

It remains uncertain who Arsenal will choose to sell between Smith Rowe and Vieira this summer. Any sale involving Smith Rowe would be seen as pure profit under the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR), providing an extra financial boost for Arsenal.

Vieira’s contract also a factor

Fabio Vieira still has three years remaining on his contract with Arsenal which means that a decent fee could potentially be secured if he were sold. However, it remains possible that they might settle for a loss on the £34 million they paid Porto for him back in 2022.

While Fabio Vieira's future at Arsenal seems uncertain due to his lack of game time and underwhelming training performances, the upcoming transfer window could bring significant changes. Whether these changes will see him leave or stay at Arsenal is yet to be seen. Regardless, sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike will be keenly watching how this situation unfolds in the coming months.
