Bordeaux coach Paulo Sousa added to Arsenal shortlist

Bordeaux coach Paulo Sousa has been added to Arsenal's managerial shortlist.

TMW says along with Mikel Arteta (Manchester City) and Patrick Vieira (Nice), the 49-year-old is one of three candidates that Arsenal want to talk to about their vacant managerial role.

Sousa took over at Bordeaux earlier this year and has guided the club to 10 wins and eight draws from 28 outings.

The club sit fifth in the Ligue 1 table after finishing down in 14th last season, and could begin talks with the Gunners later this week.

The former Portugal midfielder briefly managed each of QPR, Swansea and Leicester between 2008 and 2010 before winning the Israeli Premier League with Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2014 and Swiss Super League with Basel in 2015.
