Arsenal has begun the hunt for a technical director, only after Monchi declined the offer and instead returned to Sevilla.
Former Ajax winger Marc Overmars was also in the list, but the 46-year-old also snubbed the deal and extended his contract with the Dutch club where he still works as the Director of football.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal’s search for Sven Mislintat’s replacement has now seen them turn to Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, who will consider quitting the French side.
Reports claim that the club management is taking note of various options but haven’t ruled out their interest in Overmars.
Arsenal is willing to fill the position before summer after losing out key profiles for the top role at the club.
