Eagle-eyed Arsenal fans have a theory that their signing of Fabio Vieira is already complete with an announcement imminent.
The Gunners unexpectedly agreed a stunning £34.2million move with Porto for the Portuguese playmaker last week. According to several reports, Vieira will be unveiled as a player for the north London club in the next 24 hours.
But the ever-eager Arsenal supporters have since taken matters into their own hands by solving a cheeky riddle in the lead up to the 22-year-old’s unveiling. And they believe the official Arsenal Twitter admin is in on the secret ahead of the highly-anticipated announcement.

Reporter Ben Jacobs took to Twitter to post several images, which showed tweets by the official club account about seemingly unrelated things. The tweets, original collated by fans, began with ‘First touch’, ‘Arsenal legend’, ‘Baller’ and ‘In Stock’.
They appeared to suggest the admin had spelled out ‘FABI’ on purpose with the opening letters. Of course, that led to fans speculating about what the account would tweet next, with ‘Official’ and ‘On this day’ being favourites.

Vieira’s impending arrival has understandably caused a stir in north London since it was revealed. The playmaker scored six times last season and notched 14 assists on his way to winning Portugal’s Primeira Liga.
His representatives will also provide further encouragement to the Gunners faithful. The agency run by super-agent Jorge Mendes, which has overseen negotiations with Arsenal for Vieira, also represents another of their key transfer targets in Raphinha.
Arsenal will hope their swift and smooth negotiations with Mendes’ Gestifute will enable them to beat Barcelona and a number of other clubs to the Leeds United winger. Leeds are understood to want £50million for Raphinha as the Gunners weigh up an imminent bid
