Arsenal fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye 48-year-old that is dreaming of a move to The Emirates

Newcastle have reportedly added Marc Overmars to their director of football shortlist – and Arsenal fans have responded, jealously.

Overmars, 48, is impressing at Ajax and already has the reputation as one of the best in the world in his role. He rebuilt Ajax since his arrival in 2012.

The 1997-98 Premier League winner has brought in Premier League rejects and given them the stage to rediscover their best form.

In the mean time, he has sold Ajax’s best talents for incredible sums of money – including the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt.

In their place Dusan Tadic, Seb Haller, Daley Blind and more are impressing. Overmars deserves enormous credit for his work.

Is PSGs Business Model Destined To Fail?

Newcastle’s new owners are well aware. De Telegraaf reports that the Toon want to bring him to the club to oversee their new era in the market.

What are Arsenal fans saying about potentially appointing Overmars?

Newcastle are yet to appoint a manager to replace Steve Bruce, but the likelihood is that they will go for Lucien Favre and Paulo Fonseca.

But they need a man that can direct the huge wealth of the Saudi Arabia PIF. They need a man that will not allow other clubs to take advantage.

Barcelona, for example, will be licking their lips at the potential of Newcastle buying their players – asking for fees over the odds.

Adding a man like Overmars will prevent that from happening. Of course, Arsenal will be jealous – especially with Edu’s activity being questionable.

The Express say Overmars is ‘dreaming’ of a return after a text exchange with Ray Parlour. Gunners fans reacted to Newcastle eyeing Overmars.
