Patrick Vieira is a serious contender to return to Arsenal as manager.

The London club are looking for candidates to replace Arsene Wenger, who has endured a difficult season.

A Premier League top-four place is out of reach and victory in the Europa League, where Arsenal face favourites Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals, is the only path into the Champions League. There is growing disaffection among fans and the indications are that Wenger will step down after 22 years at the club.

Legendary former midfielder Vieira, 41, is currently boss at New York City and could potentially have a long-term future with the City Football Group, who also own Manchester City.

His appointment would thrill many Arsenal fans. He won three Premier League titles and three FA Cups before moving to Juventus, Inter Milan and Manchester City where he won the FA Cup again in 2011.

He went into management and worked for two years at City in charge of the development squad, before taking the step into senior management in 2016 when he took over at New York City in the MLS. – Daily Mail
