Marseille are weighing up a potential loan bid for Arsenal midfielder Fabio Vieira ahead of the January transfer window

The Gunners have yet to make a decision on the Portuguese international’s future, but it is revealing that the club has not to entirely rule out the possibility, despite a lack of choices in the centre of the park.

Vieira made three Premier League starts and finished the season with two goals and six assists in all competitions. In his second season with the Gunners, things have improved significantly, but he has only started three games since August.

The Gunners May be targeting a replacement

While Arsenal’s interest in Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz has been connected to Thomas Partey’s possible exit, it might also be tied to Vieira.

Luiz’s approach is perhaps more similar to Vieira’s than Partey’s, having already scored six goals and contributed two assists for Villa this season.
