Kroenke and Gazidis agree to go for young manager option at Arsenal

Arsenal are ready to ignore big names and go with a young manager to replace Arsene Wenger.

The Mirror says New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira has made the cut.

They have also Juventus boss Max Allegri and Mikel Arteta, of Manchester City, among the candidates to succeed Arsene Wenger this summer as they look to reduce the options to five names they will present to majority shareholder Stan Kroenke.

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique appears to be out of the running because of his wage demands, and also with the Gunners as keen on appointing a young head coach as they are to turn to a big name.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is on board with a young appointment, while the Kroenkes also had big success in the NFL last season by naming Sean McVay as the Los Angeles Rams' head coach when he was just 30.
