Arsenal not only Monchi option

Monchi is increasingly likely to leave Roma at the end of the season, but Arsenal aren’t his only options, as PSG and Sevilla also want the transfer guru.

Spanish and English papers are adamant that Arsenal offered him the role of technical director for next term and expect Monchi to accept.

It would be a reunion with former Sevilla Coach Unai Emery and Arsenal would even be prepared to pay the €1m release clause in his Roma contract, which runs to June 2021.

Monchi’s rapport with the fans has broken down significantly, as they blame him and the club President James Pallotta for selling star players such as Alisson and Radja Nainggolan.

However, Arsenal aren’t the only candidates for Monchi’s future, as Paris Saint-Germain are also rumoured to have made a proposal.

An intriguing report in the Corriere dello Sport suggests he could even return to Sevilla in a new role as President if the club is bought out by a foreign investor.

As for Roma, La Gazzetta dello Sport claim they would replace Monchi with an in-house figure, promoting Frederic Massara and Federico Balzaretti.

There could even be the return of Franco Baldini, who is already working closely with President Pallotta as an advisor.
