ARSENAL are on the verge of signing Fabio Vieira after agreeing a transfer for the Porto star.
Vieira, 22, is heading to London for a medical tomorrow after Arsenal struck terms with his club Porto.
The versatile attacking midfielder has a release clause of £42million.
But Porto are accepting an initial offer of £30m plus add-ons worth up to £4m.
And Vieira will now pen a five-year Arsenal contract after super agent Jorge Mendes took control of negotiations.
Vieira has spent his entire career at Porto, scoring 10 goals in 75 outings.
