Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta emerges as a new name in the frame to replace Sven Mislintat as Arsenal's technical director.

Arsenal have reportedly started interviewing candidates again for their technical director role after missing out on their top two targets.

The Gunners looked to be on the verge of announcing Monchi last month, only for the 50-year-old to turn them down and instead return to Sevilla.

Former winger Marc Overmars was next on their list, but he also snubbed the chance to return to North London by extending his deal with Ajax, where he works as a director of football.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal's search for Sven Mislintat's replacement has now seen them turn to Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, who will consider quitting the French side.

The report claims that Arsenal have a number of other options in mind, and they have not ruled out reigniting their interest in Overmars.

A new technical director to complete Unai Emery's backroom team will ideally be in place before the summer transfer window opens.
