Arsenal are set to announce a new director of football in ex-Barcelona director Raul Sanllehi according to The Mirror.
With the recent appointment of Sven Mislintat who arrived from Borussia Dortmund as head of recruitment, our back room reshuffle continues to gather pace.
Sanllehi resigned from Barcelona this week after Arsenal talks and he’s expected to start his role straight away.
Chief scout Steve Rowley is set to stay at Arsenal, while Dick Law is still at the club despite his contract expiring in September but it’s thought that he will retire once the new arrivals are all place and settled in at The Emirates.
It’s certainly an exciting time at Arsenal behind the scenes, but whether these new appointments can take us to the next level of success on the pitch remains to be seen. The January transfer window should be a good indicator of our ambition, Arsene Wenger has this morning denied Ozil and Sanchez will leave in January, so this is a good start.
