Arsenal news Monchi holds talks with Sevilla as Gunners fear the worst

Arsenal are handed a blow in their pursuit of Monchi as Sevilla confirm that talks have been held with the 50-year-old.

Ajax's current director of football and former Arsenal star Marc Overmars has been touted as another potential option in north London.

There have been suggestions that a deal is already in place and Monchi has been tipped to sign a new three-year contract with the Gunners.

"Sevilla now needs a sports director, we have looked for the best and the best is Monchi", Sevilla president Jose Castro said of the man who spent nine years as the club's goalkeeper before retiring aged 30.

The Seville president is optimistic that the club will be able to reach an agreement for his return to Basque outfit.

Controversial Australian senator egged after New Zealand shootings statement
A Victoria Police spokesman said officers arrested a 17-year-old boy from Hampton who was released pending further inquiries. Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called the comments "contemptible" and said Anning is a disgrace to the Senate.

Sevilla sacked head coach Pablo Machin on Friday and director of football Joaquin Caparros has stepped into the role, meaning that there is a position open at the Estadio Ramon.

"We believe Monchi is the best choice and we've started negotiations with him".

"He has been extraordinarily receptive".

'Both parties are optimistic and I am very optimistic that this also happens'.

With Monchi tilting towards a return to Sevilla, it remains to be seen what Arsenal do next to change the picture.
