Arsenal place Hoffenheim’s Rosen on their shortlist for director of football role

Date Posted,April 30, 2017

Arsenal have Hoffenheim’s Alexander Rosen on their radar in their search for a director of football.

The Gunners have been alerted to sporting director Rosen, 37, who has been an key figure in Hoffenheim’s success this season.

They have been one of the Bundesliga’s surprise packages since Rosen appointed rising managerial star Julian Nagelsmann.

Nagelsmann, just 29, has followed up steering Hoffenheim to safety last year by leading them to their best ever season this campaign.

They clinched a Champions League play-off placed for the first time on Sunday and if they retain third place in the German League Hoffenheim will be guaranteed a group stage spot.

Rosen has also impressed in the transfer market, earning a reputation for striking good deals – both ins and outs – for Hoffenheim, like securing a £26m profit when selling Roberto Firmino to Liverpool in 2015.

Despite some resistance from boss Arsene Wenger , the Gunners’ are continuing their search for what would be their first ever director of football.

Rosen has been sounded out by intermediaries but former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars, now director of football at Ajax, and Borussia Dortmund’s Michael Zorc are two other names also under consideration.
