Arsenal make contact with former Monaco sporting director Antonio Cordon
Arsenal have made contact with former Monaco and Villarreal sporting director Antonio Cordon about heading up their recruitment in the wake of Sven Mislintat’s exit earlier this year.

Arsenal were rebuffed in their pursuit of a replacement, with Monchi snubbing the Gunners’ interest and returning to Sevilla instead while Marc Overmars remained with Ajax.
