In an interview on Talksport radio yesterday, former Gunner Ian Wright claimed that he had heard that Patrick Vieira was set to return to Arsenal according to an article in the Daily Mirror.
The Sun have followed, reporting that he could be signed for as little as £750,000 on a one year contract.
“I’m hearing Vieira, pay-as-you-play back at Arsenal. That’s what I’m hearing and that’s what I’m hoping.”
Vieira still visits London when possible and is said to still be close to manager Arsene Wenger, and is further said to be keen on a move back to England. Arsenal could provide the answer for him by offering a “pay as you play” deal to the 33 year old.
Could this be the answer to the problems Arsenal face with finding a holding midfield player? Is Ian right right right or wrong wrong wrong?
