Arsenal to hire ex-Liverpool performance coach Darren Burgess - reports

NYCFC coach Patrick Vieira joins ESPN FC's Heineken Boot room to give his thoughts on Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.
Steve Nicol explains why the time is right for Hector Bellerin to leave Arsenal and return to Barcelona.
ESPN's Arsenal correspondent, Mattias Karen, explains who he thinks is likely to be playing at the Emerates next season.

Arsenal are set to appoint former Liverpool high performance manager Darren Burgess, according to multiple reports in Australia and England.

The 43-year-old is currently employed by Australian Rules Football (AFL) club Port Adelaide but the AFL Footy Show reported he will leave them midseason.

Kane Cornes, a panellist on the show who has worked under Burgess, described his potential departure as "a massive blow for Port Adelaide" and added "he's a genius."

Burgess worked at Liverpool between 2010 and 2013, working under Kenny Dalglish, Roy Hodgson and Brendan Rodgers.

A report in the Daily Telegraph said Arsene Wenger has agreed to the appointment and Burgess, who has also worked for the Australia men's football team during the 2010 World Cup, would be responsible for the medical, fitness, psychology and performance analysis at Arsenal, with an announcement expected later this week.

Arsenal were dogged by injury problems last season with Santi Cazorla and Per Mertesacker among the players to miss large sections of the campaign.

The club finished fifth in the Premier League meaning they will be without Champions League football for the first time in Wenger's reign.
