So are we getting a Technical Director soon? Looks like the Arsenals search for the vacant role role goes on. Our first choice , at least which seemed to be our first choice from various new going around , in Monchi returned to Sevilla after leaving AS Roma . Raul Sanllehi and Vinai Venkatesham will be trying to get someone before the summer transfer window opens and they will surely be looking at options.
One of the names doing rounds was former winger Marc Overmars but he committed his future to Ajax by signing a new contract so that chapter is closed before even opening. Another name that did the rounds in the last few hours was about Thomas Schaaf because of the comments made by Per Mertesacker who had made a visit to his former club Werder Bremen this week . He however has clarified that there could be a link between the two clubs could happen in the near future regarding youth work.
The club now looks at getting in Lille’s transfer chief Luis Campos . Campos, 54, is responsible for the discovery of a wealth of European talent, including Anthony Martial, Bernardo Silva, Fabinho and Tiemoue Bakayoko . However we are set to face competition from Chelsea and Roma for Campos’ signature . Blues were thought to be in talks with the sporting director earlier this month – as they continue to look to fill the void left by Michael Emenalo in 2017.
Meanwhile, Roma are looking for a replacement to Monchi – who left his role at the Serie A giants to rejoin former club Sevilla . Campos has previously worked at Real Madrid and Monaco – as well as a host of Portuguese clubs during his long and successful career.The sporting director also helped unearth talents such as Arsenal target Nicolas Pepe, James Rodriguez and Benjamin Mendy.
As fans we are now eagerly waiting to see tho takes up the role and we can be relevant in the transfer business since we work on tight budgets.
