Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Patrick Vieira needs to quit Inter Milan in January to revive his World Cup dream.
However the Arsenal manager stopped short of saying he is ready to bring the midfielder back to London.
Vieira, now age 33, has lost his France place as he is out of favour with Inter manager Jose Mourinho.
Wenger told reporters that Vieira must change club in January if he wants to play in the World Cup as he does not get enough games at Inter.
Wenger added that the former Arsenal player is missing playing time and to go to the World Cup at his age, Vieira must play regularly.
However Wenger also said that he believes that Patrick Vieira can regain his starting place for France.
Wenger however reiterated the fact that Vieira will not come back to Arsenal.
