Arsenal assured they can speak with New York City FC coach Vieira

Arsenal have been assured they will not face any obstacles if they wish to appoint New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira as Arsene Wenger's successor.

The Daily Mail says Vieira is one of the leading candidates to take over at the Emirates.

He is currently in charge of New York City in the MLS - but he also has an agreement with the American club that if there was an offer from a top European club that he wants to accept, he will be allowed to go.

He had two years running the Development squad at Manchester City and now has managerial experience at first team level.
