Vieira, blessed with wonderful skill, technical excellence, a sumptuous left foot and the unique ability to operate consummately in the half-space and in between the lines.
The Portuguese maestro could well offer much variation and flexibility to Arteta’s weaponry next term due to his versatility, capable of playing on the right-wing, at no.10, even as a false-nine or in an advanced central midfield role.
To further highlight how much of a dangerous attacking figure he is, no other player at Porto has managed to equal the number of crosses that Vieira (95) has made throughout this campaign.
He was also listed in the top 10 for shots per 90 minutes in the Portuguese league last term, highlighting his courageousness in getting shots away.
