Vieira set for showdown talks with Wenger

Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has reportedly wants to meet with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger for talks over his future after he was linked with Italian champions Juventus. Juve denie reports that they have held talks with the 29 year old Frenchman. Papers in Italy are saying that Juventus vice-president Roberto Bettega will fly into London on Tuesday and meet with Arsenal chiefs.

It is thought that Juve have offered £5 million plus Stephen Appiah but Arsenal would want significantly more for the Frenchman. Last year Vieira was on the verge of signing for spanish giants Real Madrid but Arsenal persuaded him to stay at the last minute, but it remains to be seen if Vieira will stay this time after a very average season at highbury.

In my opinion I think Arsenal should get rid of Vieira now because if they wait until he goes 30+ to sell him he wouldn't be worth as much as he is now and he had a very average season last year plus it would give Arsenal funds to sign Shaun Wright-Phillips.
