Patrick Vieira 'upset' with Arsenal over 'token gesture'

Arsene Wenger breaks one last Sir Alex Ferguson record in final Arsenal match

The Daily Mail is reporting that Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has picked Arteta as the leading candidate to become the north London club's new boss after Wenger ended his 22-year reign at The Emirates this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Vieira was left with the distinct impression that "the call was merely a token gesture to one of their former players".

Arsene Wenger says he will not take another job in the Premier League as it would feel like a betrayal of Arsenal.

Ever since Arsène Wenger announced his "decision" to step down as Arsenal's manager, the press have been trying to find out two things: who will replace him and where will the 68-year-old go next.

The Independent reports that yesterday witnessed "another day of progress and productive talks between the former player and the club".

Dennis Schroder Seems Very Ready To Leave The Hawks
The 24-year-old German averaged a career-best 19.4 points in addition to 6.2 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game. Hawks guard Dennis Schroder doesn't want to play for a team that consistently finishes at the bottom of the standings.

Sky add that Thierry Henry has "not been contacted" by the club, while Luis Enrique's wage demands continue to make his appointment unlikely.

Also out of the running is Hoffenheim's highly-rated young boss Julian Nagelsmann.

Arteta is keen to take over the reins at Arsenal and is already thinking about his backroom team, with Gunners midfielder Santi Cazorla in consideration to be given an assistant role and a player-coach contract.

Speaking to Arsenal's website, Wenger confirmed he will likely manager overseas next.

The French club are reportedly ready to part ways with Claudio Ranieri in the summer meaning they will be looking for a new head coach.
