Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to see David Dein return to the club.

The former Gunners vice-chairman brought Wenger to the club and the Frenchman wants him re-hired as football director.

With the need for a major overhaul this summer, Wenger hopes to lean on Dein to rebuild his squad with £70 million available for the summer market.

The problem for Wenger is that Dein is aligned with major shareholder Alisher Usmanov, who has been critical of board members.
