Marc Overmars confirms Arsenal interest
Marc Overmars has confirmed that Arsenal have drawn up a shortlist of people for the Director of Football job – and he is on it.
“I know the club pretty well and I have always kept in touch with Arsenal,” Overmars said.
“As a player I had the ambition to play in Europe (outside the Netherlands). It might be an option in the future.
“I think there is a list with names, and I’m on it. It’s not strange since I’ve had a good time at Arsenal. But I’ve just signed a new contract at Ajax.”
Arsenal reportedly want a big restructure this summer, with Arsene Wenger taking less responsibility if he stays.
The move is a clear move to modernise the way the club is run.
Overmars has received mixed reviews during his time at Ajax but recently had one of his best spells at the club.
Many would be happy to get another ex-player at the club.
