Arsenal identify internal candidate for technical director post

Arsenal could yet look within to hire their new technical director.

Arsenal were dealt a blow when sporting director target Monchi turned them down to return to Sevilla earlier this week. Another candidate, Marc Overmars, has also signed a new deal with Ajax.

However, the London Evening Standard says Arsenal are "disappointing but relaxed" and reacted calmly to being turned down by Monchi.

They are in no rush to find a replacement for Sven Mislintat and may look internally to current head of international recruitment Francis Cagigao to fill the spot.

Having already identified potential targets and areas to strengthen, the need for a new sporting director is no longer a matter of complete urgency.
