London:

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he believes former captain Patrick Vieira wants to come back to the Premier League club and will consider "the psychological impact of a player of that stature" returning.

The 33-year-old Vieira has a year left on his Inter Milan contract and has been linked with a move to Arsenal or north London rival Tottenham.

Wenger said on Friday that Vieira is a "great player, who did extremely well for the club and is a legend here."

Despite selling Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor to Manchester City, Wenger says his squad is stronger and wiser than before.
