Patrick Vieira Reportedly Unhappy After 'Token Gesture' Approach from Arsenal

PremierLeague review

And having him involved with Arsenal's transition post-Wenger is bound to go down very well with supporters of the north London club.

The Spaniard's name was among the initial candidates following the confirmation that Wenger would be leaving the club after 22 years, and he is now said to be the favourite for the job. Now in charge of New York City, Vieira is said to be mystified over whether he has ever been under serious consideration.

Arsenal are reportedly planning to accelerate their appointment of Mikel Arteta as Arsene Wenger's successor after seeing a number of other candidates drop out.

The former Everton star will have learned a lot from Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, under whom he has worked as a coach for the past two seasons. "I think all of them could manage Arsenal", Pires said in an interview with BTSport.com.

Whereas Manchester United unveiled David Moyes just 24 hours after Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement in 2013, Arsenal have taken nearly a month (and counting). Not the board, however, who instead are "close" to appointing 36-year-old Arteta.

As things stand it appears Wenger's assistant Steve Bould and Jens Lehmann, recruited to the coaching staff just last summer, will remain under the new manager.

Juventus boss Max Allegri has pledged his future to the perennial Italian champions while Hoffenheim insist that their coach Julian Nagelsmann is also staying put.

The 68-year-old saw out his Arsenal career against Huddersfield with a 1-0 win, ending his reign after 1,235 games and being celebrated as Arsenal's greatest ever manager.

It also remains unclear what Wenger's next move will be. That is the problem I face at the moment.
