According to the French daily, L Equipe, Arsenal is eyeing upon Marseille’s Andoni Zubizarreta as their new sporting director after missing out on Monchi.
With the summer transfer around the corner, the Gunners need to be tactically smart as they are well aware of their rival clubs’ massive spending budgets.
Anyway, looking for a new technical director will be a crucial task for the team management after the departure of Sven Mislintat, as Emery failed to bring Monchi to the club, despite making a reunion attempt.
Zubizaretta, the former Spanish shot-stopper is best known for his era at Barcelona where he assisted the club management in bringing likes of Javier Mascherano, Cesc Fabregas, Alexis Sanchez, Jordi Alba, Neymar, Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to the Camp Nou.
In the wake of the circumstances, Arsenal is desperate to assign the Spaniard their technical director.
