According to The Mirror and Marca, Arsenal have already offered Roma director Monchi a new job and expect him to accept.
The former Sevilla chief has been consistently linked with the technical director role at Arsenal, especially after the Premier League outfit appointed Unai Emery as Coach.
Another option is believed to be Marc Overmars, who is currently working for Ajax, but Monchi has always been the stand-out candidate.
It’s reported the Gunners are ready to pay the £1m release clause in Monchi’s contract with Roma, which runs to June 2020.
However, it’s also likely Monchi would not leave the Giallorossi in the lurch, so will give them time until the end of the season to find a suitable replacement.
