Arsenal look to Dortmund for possible Rowley replacement


According to ESPN, Arsenal are looking at Borussia Dortmund’s chief scout Sven Mislintat as a possible replacement for Steve Rowley.

Rowley, who has worked for the Gunners for over 35 years, is understood to be on his way out of the club as Ivan Gazidis attempts to revamp the football operations side of the business.

It’s yet to be confirmed if or when Rowley will leave, however, elsewhere there has been movement in the London Colney hierarchy. Contract specialist Huss Fahmy was recruited from cycling’s Team Sky in the summer and chief transfer negotiator Dick Law stepped down in September.

Bayern Munich reportedly tried to sign Mislintat as their technical director in the off-season only to be warded off by Dortmund. Since then he had a very public falling out with Thomas Tuchel who has since left his post as first team coach.

Mislintat, 45, is credited with bringing the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Shinji Kagawa, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ousmane Dembele to the Westfalenstadion.
