find themselves in a difficult position heading into the latter stages of the season, as Sunday’s Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City has resulted in an inquisition into Arsene Wenger’s leadership.

The French boss saw his future shrouded with immense speculation last season, as finished outside of the Champions League places for the first time under his tenure, but penned a two-year deal after leading the Gunners to another FA Cup triumph.

However, find themselves ten points behind Hotspur in the Premier League’s race for a top-four finish and suffered a humiliating FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest, whilst a mammoth clash with AC Milan awaits in the Europa League.

As such, many are expecting to be replaced this summer and legend has named a former captain as the ideal replacement- but it’s not Mikel Arteta.

Instead, Parlour told¬†Sky Sports¬†he’d give the job to Patrick Vieira.

“They may decide to go with an inexperienced person like Patrick Vieira or Thierry Henry. Or do we want to go with someone who has Champions League experience like Simeone?”

“Obviously then there’s Carlo Ancelotti, who has managed some of the biggest clubs in the world. But the one I would take a gamble on, and I think he’d be given time, is Patrick Vieira.”

Vieira spent nine successful years at Arsenal, where he won three Premier League titles, and is currently the head coach of MLS franchise FC.
