Roma’s Director of Football, Monchi, has admitted that it is a pleasure to be linked with a potential move to Arsenal.
The North London club have been linked with Roma’s highly rated talent spotter Monchi, who previously worked alongside Unai Emery during their respective times at Sevilla, a period which saw the southern Spanish side with three consecutive Europa League titles.
The Spaniard has spotted a number of talented players during his career including Sergio Ramos, Dani Alves and Ivan Rakitic, and when asked about the current rumours about his future, he admitted that it is a ‘pleasure’ to be linked a move to the Premier League side:
“I know my name is being associated with Arsenal but I am concentrating on my job with Roma,” Monchi told The Sun.
“However it is a pleasure being linked with a club like Arsenal – but it is not first time that happens”.
The 50-year-old has also been one of the names mentioned as a candidate for the Director of Football role at Manchester United.
