Bournemouth bid for Porto playmaker Fabio Vieira

Porto playmaker Fabio Vieira is interesting Bournemouth.

The Sun says Cherries boss Eddie Howe has tabled an opening offer of £5million to Porto for midfielder Vieira, who is on the fringe of their first team but rated highly.

Vieira, 20, has played for Porto's youth sides for years and also been a regular in the national teams.

He is now becoming a key player in his country's Under-21s.

Porto are expected to start Vieira before the end of the season, which restarted last Wednesday.

He was an unused sub in the 2-1 defeat at Famalicao but has been the star of Porto's B team with seven goals this campaign.

Howe wants to pounce now rather than wait for Vieira to make the grade and then become priced out of his reach.
