Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger continues to have plenty of speculation hover over his head after another disappointing campaign, with the Gunners needing to win the Europa League in order to seal a spot in next season’s Champions League.

The Frenchman only signed a new two-year deal last summer but gossip suggests he could be told to pack his bags at the end of the season- and a familiar face is in the running to take charge at the Emirates Stadium.

The Mail reports that former Arsenal skipper Patrick Vieira is being considered to take the reigns in north London should the club decide to move away from Wenger, although they also state the ball is very much in Wenger’s court.

Vieira enjoyed a successful nine-year spell with Arsenal, where he won three FA Cup and three Premier League titles, and has earned plaudits with his displays in charge of MLS franchise New York City FC.

The World Cup winner has been with New York since 2016 and is widely tipped to return to Europe in the coming years.
