Arsenal have entered a new era following the departure of long-term manager Arsene Wenger and there was a chance that further major changes could occur.

Italian giants AC Milan were widely reported to be keen on luring Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis to the San Siro, although¬†The Sun¬†cites reports indicating that he has rejected the opportunity of a move.

Milan, under new ownership, have changed owners after Yonghong Li defaulted on his debts and face a struggle to adhere to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations after being barred from European competitions this season.

53-year-old Gazidis was identified as the ideal candidate to rejuvenate the club at boardroom level but, following a significant rise of importance in north London this summer, has elected to remain loyal to the Premier League side.

Gazidis has enjoyed a successful few months after playing a key part in Arsenal’s recruitment in 2018, as well as securing Mesut Ozil down to a lucrative new contract.
