Our Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that big changes are going to be on the way for their club in the coming months.
Of course, things would take a welcome upturn if they managed to win their FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City this weekend but there can be no doubt that that would probably only paper over the cracks.
The Gunners, then, will surely be active in the transfer window but it appears as though that they will not have the services of well-respected director of football Monchi.
The Sevilla man has earned the reputation of signing a number of superb stars over the years for Sevilla and had been referred to as an Arsenal target by the likes of football.london.
It looks as though, though, he will be off to AS Roma instead with him telling Spanish publication AS – via The Express:
“It is not finalised but it is close to being finalised.
“If everything goes as planned then I’ll join Roma, unless there is a twist.”
A missed opportunity for Arsenal, then, and it remains to be seen if they get a different director of football in – a position many feel they need to get sorted.
