‘Hope This is True’ ‘Masterstroke’ – These Arsenal Fans Would Welcome Serie A Chief As New Technical Director

Arsenal are hopeful of persuading Roma sporting director Monchi to make the move to the Emirates, according to reports in the UK.

The Spaniard worked closely with Unai Emery at Sevilla and the Gunners boss is keen to link up with his former colleague once again.

When asked about the links to Arsenal today, Monchi said he was flattered by the reports, although he emphasised that he is fully focused on his work at Roma:

“I know my name is being associated with Arsenal but I am concentrating on my job with Roma. However it is a pleasure being linked with a club like Arsenal – but it is not first time that happens.”

Some, however, are worried by his recent track record:

The Gunners are looking for a replacement for Sven Mislintat. It has been officially announced by the London club that the German will leave next month.

The head of recruitment was reportedly unhappy at the lack of power he had over transfers with Director of Football Raul Sanllehi and Unai Emery having greater input on transfer targets.
