Edu confirms Arsenal talks: I'm available after Copa America

Edu has confirmed he's held talks with Arsenal over becoming their technical director.

However, the former Gunners midfielder will not resume negotiations until after the Copa America tournament, where he is the technical co-ordinator of the Brazil national team.

"I had a conversation with Arsenal. There's an interest," said Edu.

"I was very clear: 'I am 100% focused on the Copa America. I'm not speaking about absolutely anything because of the Copa America.

"If, by any chance, you [Arsenal] want to speak to me after the Copa, propose something after the Copa, I will make myself available so that we can talk. As for now, I am fully focused on the Copa."
