Arsenal midfielder Smith Rowe: Fans should be really excited about Vieira

Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe has welcomed new signings Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira.

Smith Rowe likened Vieira, who arrived from Porto on a deal worth a potential £34million, to Manchester City star Bernardo Silva, whilst also claiming that new No 9 Gabriel Jesus has already made a fantastic impact on the squad.

He said, “He’s very similar [to Silva]. He’s a very good passer of the ball, his left foot is very good and he likes to create goals and score them himself.

“I’ve already played against him at international level, so I can’t speak highly enough of him, and the fans should be really excited.

“At the Euro Under-21s, they [Portugal] beat us 2-0 and he was unbelievable in that game.”

Of Gabriel Jesus, Smith Rowe added: “He’s been fantastic since he came in, it feels like he’s been here for a couple of years. Everyone knows how good he is and we can’t wait to get started with him.

“Man City are a big club and they’ve won a lot recently. It would be good if he could bring that [winning] mentality and help us out.”
