Cedric Soares was discussing one of Arsenal’s summer deals, Fabio Vieira.
Vieira was Arsenal’s first big signing of the 2022 summer transfer window, with his arrest coming somewhat out of the blue.
The midfielder is believed to have brought Arsenal back just over £34m following his move from FC Porto.
Vieira is an attacking midfielder by trade and is expected to offer competition to the likes of Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe.

Now, after Vieira spent just over a month settling at Arsenal, Cedric has been discussing his compatriot.
In doing so, the right-back was quick to highlight two key qualities in Vieira, his bravery and intelligence:
“He has a similar mindset to me, which is great to see,” Cedric said. “I am helping him settle in. Fabio is a very smart player from what I saw in Portugal. I never played with him but from what I saw, analyzing matches and watching his performances, he had a really great season. He has great quality. He is a technical player with quality and ability. He has a great vision.” For the last pass too. That quality you look for so much in players, I think Fabio got it. I’m sure he’ll adapt quickly, did you know he’s smart?
“When you are not the strongest physically, you need to be smart in the Premier League. I am sure he will adapt well to the Premier League, I have no doubts. [The physicality of English football] It’s a big change, but personally, I’ve adapted well and I’m not the tallest. With Fabio, first and foremost, he has great courage to play. This one for me is quality. Second, I see him as a very smart player.
“Of course he is still very young, so I am sure he will grow in the years in the Premier League. What is intense for him is that the rhythm of the Premier League will be much faster than the rhythm of the League in Portugal. That is something he will have time to adapt to, but you cannot change it. “.
