Patrick Vieira is not considered a top candidate for the managerial vacancy at Arsenal.

Vieira is a club legend and currently manages Nice. Vieira is keen on getting the job but some of his team's recent performances have raised questions. 

Mikel Arteta, Mauricio Pochettino, Max Allegri, Brendan Rodgers, Eddie Howe and Marcelo Gallardo have all been mentioned as candidates to permantely replace Unai Emery, who was sacked last month.

Arsenal wants to give Freddie Ljungberg an opportunity to make a positive impact on the club.
