Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira is looking increasingly likely to become the new Nice manager as the French club want him to take over their vacant managerial position and are 'increasingly confident' of luring him away from the MLS. The Ligue 1 side, who just missed out on Europa League qualification last season, finishing in eighth, have identified Vieira as their No 1 candidate to succeed Lucien Favre after he left for Borussia Dortmund. According to the Times, Nice are expecting to secure Vieira's services in the coming weeks after chasing him since May.
