The search for a new Arsenal technical director has temporarily stalled

Published

The process of former Arsenal star Edu becoming the new technical director at the Emirates has stalled, at least until after the Copa America in Brazil is completed in July.

Former invincible Edu is the technical coordinator of the Brazil national team and therefore has to remain focussed on his current role at such a critical time for his country.

However, on a positive note, talks have taken place which Edu himself has confirmed.

“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.”

It is perfectly understandable that Edu will not enter into further talks with us or commit to anything so close to the Copa America tournament but that does not mean that it is not frustrating and inconvenient.

The summer transfer window will be opening soon and we need that position filled urgently and while Edu would be a good fit we cannot wait forever.

Hopefully, Edu has given some sort of private assurance to the club that he is likely to take the position without making it known publicly

One transfer battle that Arsenal fans should hope Tottenham win

Arsenal transfer gossip is ramping up and here at Just Arsenal we do not cover all it for a variety of reasons, the main one being that most of the gossip is simply rubbish but we do like to bring you the weird, wonderful and credible when appropriate and occasionally those that we hope does not happen and that is certainly the case with AC Milan playmaker, Suso.

According to the media we are are in competition with Tottenham for the services of the former Liverpool flop and I have to be frank and ask why?

Suso has had a good season for AC Milan but in all fairness, it was his first good season in a long time and while seven goals and 10 assists is not that bad a return from 34 games, it is hardly earth-shattering either.

My problem with Suso is that I have always found him to be average, not rubbish but not a game changer either and we already have too many players like that, we need a player that can make a significant difference and from what I have seen of Suso, he is not that player.

Then there is his release clause, reported to be £33 Million.

Do we really want to spend that amount of money on a player that has already failed miserably in English football?

Yes, he was young, only 17 when he joined the Reds and so some allowance must be made for that but ask yourself this, if he is that good and worth £33 Million, then why has he only ever made four appearances for the Spain national squad?

Like I say, he is not rubbish, he does a job and would be a decent squad player but not for the amount of money he would cost and we don’t want squad players, we want match winners, game changers, leaders and so on and the 25-year-old just does not fit that profile for me.

If Tottenham wants Suso, let them spend the money on him, Arsenal can do better and sign a player that is proven in the Premier League, a Ryan Fraser as an example.
