Arsenal still keen on Monchi

BBC journalist David Ornstein appeared on the Arsecast podcast today and was asked about the English side’s interest in Roma sporting director Ramon Monchi. These are his words:

“I don’t know this for a fact but I have been told by a few people that he is (Raul) Sanllehi’s first choice and Emery’s first choice. One person even told me it’s a done deal, but I don’t know that for a fact. And it’s not strong enough information for me to report it.”
