Vieira signed a £34 million contract with Arsenal this summer and has already made 12 appearances for the club.
Both Ronaldo and the 22-year-old are Portuguese, so they are well acquainted.
But according to Vieira, Ronaldo has been offering guidance as he gets used to life in England.
“The two biggest influences for me are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi,” Vieira told the club’s website.
“Ronaldo not just because he’s Portuguese, but he’s really someone who really inspires others with his work ethic, how he had to leave his family and his comfort zone to sign for Sporting, and for him to build the career that he has built, it inspires everyone."
“I have met Ronaldo. "He would always provide support and give advice to young players.”
