According to reports in Italy, Marc Overmars is no longer the leading candidate to become the new technical director of Arsenal.

In recent weeks, the media in England and the Netherlands have reported that Arsenal, who are looking for a new technical director, have set their sights on Marc Overmars, who holds a similar position at Ajax.

However, Calciomercato are reporting that Monchi is the leading candidate for Arsenal after he indicated that he was open to departing Roma.

The Spaniard has worked with Arsenal boss Unai Emery before at Sevilla and the two had a great partnership. Arsenal are hoping that a reunion of the duo could happen this summer, meaning Overmars is likely to remain in Amsterdam for the time being.
