Done deal: Arsenal to announce the arrival of technical star, not Suarez

Arsenal are looking to shape up things in their squad and have sounded out former club legend South American Edu to fill the boots of a technical director.

Edu played for the Gunners during the Wenger-era from 2001 to 2005. However, he has gone to make a bigger name for himself in world football. He has stamped his mark as one of the most highly sought-after football administrators in South America. And he has Arsenal on their knees as they attempt to lure him away from international football into the clubs sphere.

Trusted outlet Globoesporte has revealed that the Gunners have offered the Brazil international, who fills the bill, a job to become the Gunners football director.

Why the bait looks very enticing and could draw Edu out, it is still not in the clear whether he is willing to pack up, leave his role in the Brazil national team, fly down to London and bob his head confidently to Arsenal’s agreement.

It is understood the Brazilian Football Association, CBF, have received an offer for Edu and are afraid to lose him to the English Premier League side.

Edu was part of the classic Arsenal team that won the Premier League unbeaten in 2003/04.
