Premier League outfit Arsenal are keen to bolster their staffing ranks by making Monchi their new technical director, according to The Mirror.
The Gunners have been sounding out candidates for the role following the departure of Sven Mislintat earlier this month.
Monchi is currently employed by Roma where he has earned a reputation that sees him largely respected in world football.
He has also worked alongside Unai Emery previously.
With money thought to be tight at the Emirates Stadium, it is vital that the club assembles the best team possible to secure summer signings.
According to the Daily Mail, just £45 million will be available for Emery to spend when the transfer window reopens.
The Gunners face competition for Monchi from Manchester United and PSG for his services, according to The Mirror’s piece.
It would be beneficial for Arsenal to get the deal done.
Monchi’s arrival in North London could see interest reignited in a former target.
According to Tutto Mercato Web, the Gunners had a £29 million bid rejected for Roma starlet Cengiz Ünder back in 2018.
Ünder has contributed six goals and nine assists this season in all competitions.
If Arsenal land Monchi then he could help them secure a stunning transfer for the highly-rated 21-year-old.
Calcio Mercato have stated that Roma are set to triple Ünder’s wages to stave off interest from Spurs.
Monchi arriving at the Gunners could see the youngster think twice, however.
The technical director is a respected and highly influential figure within European football and his arrival would represent a massive coup for Arsenal.
Not least because he could help secure the stunning Ünder.
