Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been calling for change at their club for a while now, but rather than said change being manager Arsene Wenger getting ousted from the dugout, it appears that Marc Overmars returning as a Director of Football may be the alteration, if reports from TuttoMercatoWeb are to be believed.
The legendary Dutchman currently works In a similar capacity at Ajax, but the Italian outlet have revealed that the Gunners have been in contact with him as they draw up their summer plans.
This follows the Daily Mail’s report that the former winger is wanted back in north London to work alongside Wenger, who is set to sign a new two-year contract to stay on at the club, despite widespread unrest among supporters at his presence.
TMW claim that Overmars is in talks with Ajax surrounding extending his spell at the Amsterdam ArenA, but that Arsenal have a proposal in place for him.
The 44-year-old is a fans’ favourite at the Emirates Stadium after helping the club to the league title and FA Cup in 1997/98.
Arsenal cannot progress as long as Arsene Wenger stays on – agree?
