Former Gunner becomes top candidate to be Arsenal’s first ever director of football

Marc Overmars has emerged as the leading candidate to be Arsenal’s first ever director of football, according to the Daily Mail.

Ever since his arrival back in 1996/97, Arsene Wenger has been in charge of all of Arsenal’s football-related matters. As the club now looks to move forward, however, upper management is planning to have a director of football who will oversee nearly everything that goes on at Arsenal F.C.

The Mail understands that Marc Overmars – currently working at the same position at Ajax – is leading the line at the moment. The Dutchman had a successful spell at Arsenal, winning the double with Arsene Wenger in 1997/98.

Another man among potential candidates is Borussia Dortmund’s Michael Zorc, who has run the club very well.
