Report – Arsenal eye a replacement for struggling Edu

Marc Overmars is being eyed by Arsenal as a replacement for Edu, according to the Daily Express.

Edu has been in charge of player recruitment at Arsenal since 2019 and has spent around £300million, yet Arsenal finished last season outside the European places and has lost their opening two league games of this campaign.

The former Gunner has been trusted to combine well with Mikel Arteta to bring success back to the club.

However, their trial-and-error approach has seen them land expensive flops like David Luiz and Willian.

Arsenal has spent around £130million in this transfer window to bring in some interesting players who are all under 24.

This approach is a gamble considering that the fans want the team to achieve success as soon as possible.

Their loss to Brentford and Chelsea in their two competitive games so far has left most Arsenal fans fearing for the worst.

The report claims that if the current signings all flop and leaves the club in a precarious position, Edu will be sacked and replaced with Overmars.

The former Arsenal man has been working at Ajax since 2019 and has kept them as one of the top sides in their country and in Europe.

    Overmars and Conte already sounds more professional and better quality. Its all a bit inevitable but something is going to give in the next few weeks.

  2. Too Sie says:

    must we give more time to Edu again? We can change this misfortune if Edu is being sack this night.. Please announce his departure, we don’t need him…
    Spent £300m just in two years, just buying flops…

    I definitely like the way he both speaks about and approaches the “art” of team building, plus he has a close personal connection to our club…maybe if we’re really lucky he can likewise help us pry away ten Hag, as a replacement for mini-Arsene

    Why do they keep calling Luiz a flop????

    1. Sir Michael says:

      Mark Luiz did us proud we should be grateful he helped the young ones

    2. Yossarian says:

      It’s crazy. Luiz was good overall.

    3. Websurfer says:

      Agree with Yossarian. David Luis was not an Arsenal flop. Every player can have ups and downs but IMO overall David Luiz was good player for Arsenal. Calling Luiz a flop is simply wrong.

    4. Reggie says:

      Anyone who knows about football doesn’t call Luiz a flop. He was Arsenals best defender and he will take some replacing this year.

  5. Sir Michael says:

    Overmars is being sounded out by Edu Gasper and if West Brom win tonight Arteta is on very very thin ice

    1. SueP says:

      Well at 21.27 that’s not looking likely

  6. Durand says:

    I think Overmars is a must needed experienced hand with a solid track record.

    “Rebuild” is not necessarily only for the team or manager.

  7. JW says:

    Is this one down and one to go?

  8. Ozziegunner says:

    Marc Overmaars in combination with Dennis Bergkamp (before their falling out over football philosophy) did a fantastic job at Ajax Amsterdam. The players they identified and developed are not only playing for Ajax, but for top teams in leagues throughout Europe.
    Marc Overmaars would be a positive at Arsenal.

  9. Thumper says:

    An article stating that David Luiz was an expensive flop rather undermines the validity of whatever else it says.
