Man City chief Vieira seen at Arsenal as Wenger successor

Manchester City chief Patrick Vieira is being linked with Arsene Wenger's job at Arsenal.

The People says Wenger calling time on his 17-year reign could pave the way for Gunners legend Vieira's return to north London.

Vieira, Wenger's former skipper, is proving a big hit as coach of Manchester City's under-21 side and his name is being mentioned as part of a management team that could eventually succeed Wenger.

One option being explored is the appointment of a director of football with Vieira as head coach, allowing the former midfielder to take a role alongside an experienced figurehead.

But luring him back to London won't be easy.

Vieira, 37, is one of the most-wanted young coaches in Europe, with Inter Milan - another of his former clubs - also coveting him.
