Arsenal are looking at appointing chief executive Ivan Gazidis as the club’s chief transfer negotiator, according to the Daily Mail.

In June, the Evening Standard reported that CEO Gazidis scrapped plans for a Director of Football after Arsene Wenger opposed the plans. It is believed that Gazidis had already sounded out candidates for the role, but it now seems he will be taking on a similar position himself.

The Daily Mail reported on Saturday that the Gunners were considering whether to appoint Huss Fahmy as the replacement for the outgoing Dick Law.

Law will return to the United States for family reasons at the end of the month, but the Gunners hired former Team Sky manager Fahmy to assist him over the summer with player contracts.

The departure of Law will come as a setback for manager Arsene Wenger. The American has worked with the Gunners boss for eight years, and it is believed he was a close ally of the Frenchman.
