Chuks Aneke drawing inspiration from Arsenal legend Vieira

Arsenal prospect Chuks Aneke admits he's been inspired after reading Patrick Vieira's new book.

Though a more attack-minded player than Vieira, Aneke is keen to be like him in everything he does. He wants the book to help improve him both as a player and also on a personal level away from the pitch.

"He was such a winner and I want to take that from the book and put it into my game. I want to be a winner like him," Aneke told Arsenal.com.

"I've learnt a lot [from reading the book]. To try and win at everything I do on and off the pitch. To try and lead and be more of a presence on the pitch because he was such a presence when he was on the field.

"I look up to him very much. He was the captain of this Club and he won titles. That's something I aspire to. He was one of my idols as a kid."
