Official: Arsenal announce the departure of highly technical star

Arsenal have announced the imminent departure of their highly-rated head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, according to Arsenal.com

Mislintat joined Arsenal in the December of 2017 and he has been responsible for most of the signings made by the club since then.

Mavropanos, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Lucas Torreira are among the players who joined the club because of the ingenuity of Mislintat.

Giantsfootballnews reported that the Gunners are set to appoint Edu as technical director of the club, with his arrival said to be in the stead of Mislintat, who has been linked with joining Bayern Munich.

He will officially leave Arsenal on the 8th of February, per Arsenal.com

Sven said: “It’s been an amazing experience to work at a great club like Arsenal in what has been a big time of change. I am excited about what the future holds for the club and am looking forward to new challenges for myself.”
