The France midfielder has been strongly linked with a switch back to England, with North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham said to be keen.

Gunners boss Wenger, who signed Vieira from AC Milan in 1996, has hinted he could make a move for his former captain, but rumours of a shock deal have since gone quiet.

It has been claimed Vieira could leave Serie A champions Inter in a bid to secure regular first-team football ahead of next summer's World Cup.
