Overmars & Sanllehí are two of the biggest candidates among the ones Arsenal has been looking at.
The highly regarded Law has performed much of the administrative works that are expected from a sporting director. And is well connected with agents and club executives all over Europe. But after a very frustrating summer, he’s decided to step down and return to America.
Depending on who Arsenal replace him with will likely decide who’s going to follow through to keep Wenger as the Manager.
Overmars who’s currently sporting director at Ajax and also an ex-Arsenal player is very much interested in taking up Law’s role. But it was newspaper reports in Catalonia has informed that ex-Nike Executive and Barcelona Director Raül Sanllehí is likely to be the one to replace Law.
Sanllehí has performed many such deals for Barcelona since 2008 and had played a big role in Neymar’s Santos to Barcelona deal. But not as big as Neymar’s father.
After nearly a decade working for Barcelona, he’s decided to take a new step in his career and has peaked interests from top European clubs. With the likes of Manchester City and as well as Arsenal.
