Former Arsenal star, Kevin Campbell, has given credit to the club’s chiefs, Edu, Richard Garlick, and manager Mikel Arteta over Fabio Vieira’s signature.
Campbell hailed the trio after they secured the signing of Vieira, who he described as a special talent, from Porto this summer.
Vieira, who moved to the Emirates from Porto this summer, made his first league start for Arsenal against Brentford.
The 22-year-old Portuguese scored a goal in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Brentford last weekend.
“I think everyone who watched that game realised this kid, at (22), this kid is special,” Campbell Campbell told Highbury Squad. “I’m telling you, he’s special.
“It will take time to adapt, he looks weak at times, but his technique, his quality on the ball, his passing, he’s excellent.
“But also he shot from outside the box and he fooled the goalkeeper with the eyes, whipped it with his left, his song was out and what a fantastic moment for him as well.
“He’s a special guy, he’s only going to get better as well, he’s (22) years old.
“We have to give Arteta, Edu and Richard Garlick some credit. We have some talent.
“Vieira has some fire in his boots, if they let him shoot, he can put them away.”
