Fabio Vieira reportedly close friends with key Arsenal star already, exciting for Gunners fans

Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Martinelli are already close just months after the Portuguese playmaker made his move to Arsenal.

The Gunners are absolutely flying in the Premier League this season, sitting top of the table after nine games.

Eight wins and one defeat has been pretty incredible going from Arsenal and Mikel Arteta is deservedly earning huge praise as a result.

The way Arsenal are playing exciting football with a crop of young players is admirable and two of them appear to be very close already.

Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Martinelli are already close

Arsenal swooped to sign playmaker Fabio Vieira from Porto over the summer, forking out around £34million for him.

The idea was that Vieira would provide another silky, creative, left-footed playmaker as competition for Martin Odegaard.

There may even be scope for them to play in the same midfield down the line, especially with Vieira showing real promise already.

Vieira scored in his only Premier League start at Brentford and recorded a goal and an assist against Bodo/Glimt last week.

Fans are keen to see more of the 22-year-old and will be encouraged to hear that he seems to be settling in very well.

The Daily Mail report that Vieira has already struck up a ‘particular bromance’ with winger Gabriel Martinelli.

Being of similar ages and speaking the same language will have certainly helped form that friendship.

It’s stated that the pair are ‘laughing together all the time’ with one Arsenal source stating that they are like ‘two little school kids’ together.

It’s great to see Vieira settling in so well at Arsenal and we know how those friendships can translate to on-pitch connections.

Vieira and Martinelli may well shine together on the pitch down the line and their almost immediate bond as friends will hopefully drive them forward together – something that should excite Arsenal fans.
