Arsenal to announce the arrival of Barcelona man in few days

According to the ‘Daily Mail’ the North London club are set to announce the arrival of Sanllehi in the next few days as part of a shake up in the scouting and recruitment departments.

The former Barcelona director of football worked under three presidents during his time at the Camp Nou, and was instrumental in the moves to bring both Neymar and Luis Suarez, both deals which were far from easy to get over the line.

Sanllehi will work alongside the club’s new head of recruitment, Sven Mislitat, who was brought in from Borussia Dortmund last week, and the pair will get started on preparations for the January transfer window.
