Arsenal have reportedly approached Ajax's director of football Marc Overmars to discuss a return to the Gunners.
Overmars turned out for Arsenal between 1997 and 2000, helping the club win a Premier League and FA Cup double in the 1997-98 campaign before leaving for Barcelona in July 2000.
The 45-year-old has been Ajax's director of football since June 2012 and he has a contract with the Dutch giants until the end of the 2019-2020 campaign.
However, according to The Mirror, Ajax face a fight to keep hold of the Dutchman, who Arsenal want to become their first technical director as part of a revamp at the Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery's side will be looking to record their third straight Premier League win when they travel to the champions Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.body check tags ::
