SPORTS:


Arsenal have named previous Barcelona director of football Raul Sanllehi as their new head of football relations. 

The Gunners have rebuilt behind the scenes this season, having additionally gotten ex-Borussia Dortmund ability spotter Sven Mislintat as head of recruitment a week ago. 

Sanllehi arrives with plenty of experience under his belt following a 14-year spell at Camp Nou, where he was tasked with a number of behind-the-scenes roles.

After affirming the appointment on Tuesday evening, Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis told the club's authentic site:
"In the past three years, we have supplemented our team with more top-class expertise across every aspect of our football operations.

"Raul's appointment is another important step in developing the infrastructure we need at the club to take everything we do to the next level.

"Raul has extensive contacts across the football world and has been directly involved in some of the biggest transfers in Europe in recent years. We look forward to him bringing that expertise to Arsenal."
Sanllehi will formally start his new position at Arsenal in February and is expected to work alongside Gazidis, manager Arsene Wenger and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy.
