Marc Overmars eyes Gunners job


Ajax football chief Marc Overmars is keen to hear from Arsenal, a club he left close to a decade ago

Overmars spent three seasons in North London between 1997 and 2000 and became a cult hero with supporters, helping the side win a Premier League title and FA Cup.

He is now building his reputation as a canny operator behind the scenes as director of football with Dutch giants Ajax.

De Telegraaf says he has his eyes set on making a move to another European elite club in the near future.

Their chief writer Valentijn Driessen wrote: “At Ajax, everything in terms of transfers ends up on the plate of director of football affairs Marc Overmars.

“It is an open secret that he would not reject a new challenge at a major foreign top club or with his former employers FC Barcelona and Arsenal. “He has been associated with those two clubs before.”

Overmas played for Arsenal between 1997 and 2000 scoring 25 goals in 100 appearances.
