Prospective Arsenal owner Allko Dangote reportedly plans to make Patrick Vieira the club’s new manager, according to the Metro website.
The Nigerian is worth £10billion and recently admitted he wants to purchase the Gunners in the future.
‘Wenger needs to change his style a bit. They need a new direction,’ he said.
‘I still hope I will buy the team. I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won’t want to resist. I know my strategy.’
