As a result, the player will travel to London with a view to agreeing a permanent deal.

An attacking midfielder by trade, he enjoyed an excellent campaign for the Portuguese side having scored six goals and provided 14 assists.

At 22, Vieira is believed to be ready to take the next step in his career by moving to one of Europe’s biggest sides.

Vieira’s form had alerted Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham to his services but now it looks like a move to Arsenal is the most likely outcome.

If a deal is agreed, the Portugal Under-21 international will be the Gunners’ second signing this summer after agreeing a deal for Marquinhos.

Mikel Arteta will have some serious work to do if he is to secure a top four finish for Arsenal this summer.

If they are to close the gap to Tottenham and Chelsea, the Gunners will need to make significant improvements to their squad, with Darren Bent recommending two attacking additions in particular.

When asked who he would like Arsenal to sign, Bent told talkSPORT: “Gabriel Jesus.

“I would like to see him go to Arsenal. I think he would be brilliant.

“He doesn’t necessarily have a point to prove, but I think he needs regular football now and I think he’s more than good enough to score the goals to help Arsenal get back to where they are. would like to go.

“So I think he would be a very good addition to the team.

“And Christopher Nkunku from Leipzig. It would be very expensive.

“I think there is talk of his return to Paris Saint-Germain, but I love him.

“I think he fits the bill. He can play as a centre-forward, he can play on the left and he can play on the right.

“I know two of those three are forwards, so maybe we should focus on another pair of full-backs.”
