Arsenal have been looking to sign a director of football for a couple of years, but that idea has been opposed by manager Arsene Wenger.

However, with the 67-year-old tactician seemingly coming towards the end of his Arsenal career, it would appear that the Emirates giants are now prepared to make an appointment.

Indeed, Italian media publication TuttoMercatoWeb reports that Arsenal have already agreed with Marc Overmars, who will assume the position from next season.

The Dutchman, who spent three seasons playing under Arsene Wenger at Highbury Stadium, has previous experience in the position having done the same with Ajax since 2012.

The appointment of the 44-year-old is said to be paramount in making sure Arsene Wenger has a smooth exit from the North London club at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, while Marc Overmars will also help in seeking the Frenchman’s successor, as reported in the Daily Express.

As for French tactician Arsene Wenger, he has always said he dislike the idea of a football director, admitting earlier this year.

However, it seems the former AS Monaco manager will have to agree with the idea during the last year of his lengthy career at the club.
