Arsenal former player Marc Overmars has reacted to the speculations linking him with a return to the North London outfit but as a technical director.
The North London outfit no longer have a technical director and head of recruitment after the departure of Sven Mislintat with several names linked as his replacement including former AS Roma chief Monchi.
Monchi had fuelled the speculations of his move to Arsenal after parting ways with the Italia Serie A outfit AS Roma but there are fears a move to Arsenal might not go through with Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla revealing to have held positive talks with the chief for a return.
However, Marc Overmars also let the cat out of the bag by saying he is only focused on the job at Ajax where he is doing well.
He noted that he has been on the Arsenal list for a long time but he will not seek to leave Ajax anytime soon.
Meanwhile, the search for the North London outfit continues as they hope to be active in the coming summer transfer window which would be highly determined by a technical and sporting director.
Manager Unai Emery has already confirmed that he would be doing some business next week.
Revealed: Arsenal, Man Utd Favourites To Sign France-based Chelsea Target
Premier League giants Arsenal and Manchester United are reportedly the front-runners in the keenly contested race to sign Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot during this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to the publication from the stables of The Sun.
Adrien Rabiot is available on a free transfer this summer following the expiration of his PSG contract this summer and several European clubs have been linked with a swoop for him including Chelsea who is expected to sign a new midfielder in the coming weeks.
Chelsea is yet to sign a replacement for Spanish international Cesc Fabregas since he left the club to join French giants AS Monaco in January.

Players like Leandro Paredes (moved from Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg to PSG during the winter transfer window), Nicolo Barella (Cagliari) and Bruno Fernandes (Sporting Lisbon) were linked with a move to Chelsea but nothing came out of those transfer links.
For now, Chelsea is behind both Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign French international Adrien Rabiot.
Barcelona were previously the favourites to sign the 24-year-old but their interest has cooled down in recent weeks partly due to the acquisition of Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Frenkie De Jong.
Dutch international De Jong will link up with his Barcelona teammates later this summer.
Former Tottenham star lends Emery transfer help
The North London outfit Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been advised by former Tottenham star Darren Anderton on the player he should sign in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners team are all out to add more strength to their squad with claims that manager Unai Emery would be handed approximately £40 million to secure new players.
A number of players have therefore been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium including Wilfried Zaha, Ryan Fraser and Nicolas Pepe, amongst many others.

However, the Gunners boss has been advised by the former Tottenham star to move in for the Bournemouth man Ryan Fraser, noting that he would be a perfect and excellent addition.
Ryan Fraser has a year left to be at Bournemouth which is the best time for the Gunners team to submit a bid for his signature as he is already identified as a player with top-quality after what he did with the Cherries.
According to him, Ryan Fraser can help the Gunners with a top-four finish but noted that he is unsure if he would like to move away from the club anytime soon after recording a level of success and helping the team remain at the top flight.
First Arsenal bid for Alexis Claude-Maurice rejected
The North London outfit Arsenal have already registered their interest in the signature of French Ligue 2 outfit Lorient attacking midfielder Alexis Claude-Maurice ahead of the summer transfer window.
However, a report claims that the first bid of £7 million has been submitted for his signature but it was rejected by the French outfit.
Alexis Claude-Maurice is known to be a master in the attacking midfield while he has the ability to play as a winger, a quality that has helped him excel in the Ligue 2, to have caught the attention of a number of top teams.
The star player is known for his power shot which helped him deliver a number of goals and that is expected to convince the Gunners team to return with an improved deal after learning he scored 14 goals and provided four assists for Lorient in 36 games.
Alexis Claude-Maurice is, however, expected to be convinced by Matteo Guendouzi who left the club last summer window to become a first-team player in the Unai Emery team.
However, Alexis Claude-Maurice will suit the budget of the Arsenal team, knowing that manager Unai Emery might not have more than a £40 million to engage in the summer window.
Arsenal told that James Rodriguez is still a good deal
The English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been told that Real Madrid star James Rodriguez remains a good deal for the club should they win his signature when the summer transfer window is opened.
James Rodriguez has just completed his two-year loan spell at the German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich. He has got an opportunity to remain at the club but the option has been ignored by the club.
However, it is claimed that James Rodriguez would not be welcomed back to his parent club, Real Madrid as he is not in the plan of manager Zinedine Zidane.
James Rodriguez has been reportedly rejected by Liverpool fans who claim he is being overrated and not good for the club but that cannot be the case for the North London outfit Arsenal, with suggestions that he would be a great addition at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are set to part ways with Wales international Aaron Ramsey as well as England international Danny Welbeck and James Rodriguez has been tipped to serve as a perfect cover for the two at the club owing to his quality and the roles he can play.
There is no doubt that Arsenal have got good attackers in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette but the addition of James Rodriguez would help them push for titles in the coming season.
Why Man United might lose out of race to sign Adrien Rabiot
It has been claimed that the English Premier League outfit Man United stand a chance of landing French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain star Adrien Rabiot ahead of the summer transfer window.
Adrien Rabiot has been linked with a move away from Paris after falling out with the club, a development that forced him to run out his contract with the club without a new deal.
He has been linked with a move to a number of teams including Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona, Arsenal and Man United and ready to receive offers as soon as the summer window is opened.
However, the Red Devils have been tipped to land the star player as they are the major contender against the North London outfit Arsenal but there is a major challenge for in the deal.
It is claimed that the weekly wage of the France international might be an issue for Man United as they will not be willing to cause an imbalance in the already existing salary structure at the Old Trafford.

The battle for Adrien Rabiot is now between these two clubs
From every indication, the race for the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain star Adrien Rabiot is now between two English Premier League outfits Arsenal and Man United.
A number of reports have continued to link the 24-year-old to the two English rivals as he is confirmed to be on the move away from Paris in the summer transfer window.
Adrien Rabiot had fallen out with PSG and his family have backed him up to move away as a free player especially as he was left out of the team for a number of games in the course of the season.
However, the North London outfit Arsenal have been tipped as favourites in the race especially now that they stand the chance of securing automatic qualification to the Champions League next season should they win the Europa League finals against Chelsea.
More so, Arsenal boss Unai Emery has got a good relationship with Adrien Rabiot as they worked together during his spell at PSG. They could be set for a reunion.
Howbeit, Adrien Rabiot will only consider a move to any of the suitors with the right programme for his development and success, knowing that he would be a free player.
Deal On!!! EPL underdog closing in on Arsenal star
Emerging reports have claimed that English Premier League outfit Wolves are keen on the signature of Arsenal star Danny Welbeck and could land him in the summer transfer window.
Danny Welbeck would be out of contract with the North Lindon outfit in the coming summer window and there is no deal in place for renewal as Arsenal have already concluded to be without him in the coming summer window.
It is claimed that Wolves seem to add competition to their attack as they already have Raul Jimenez and Diogo
Jota, who scored 27 goals between them last season.
The report, therefore, claims that Wolves are being encouraged by the fact that the England international will be a free player and he will also seek to remain in the country to play in the top-flight.
Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck’s career has been affected by a series of injuries he had in the past and that is suggested to be the reason why he is not allowed to remain at the Stamford Bridge.
Howbeit, Arsenal chief Raul has claimed that he made efforts to hand Danny Welbeck a new contract at the but the club but he turned it down.
Done Deal!! Arsenal complete signing of young defender
North London outfit Arsenal have been able to seal a new deal with their young defender Daniel Ballard on Friday to have him remain at the club for more years.
There has not been any first team call for Daniel Ballard ever since he has been with Arsenal but that could now happen in future as he is set to remain at the Emirates Stadium with the youth team.
He has shown a glimpse of becoming a great player in the future with his current ability.
Having been with the North London outfit for 11 years, Daniel Ballard has been a regular in the u23s as he was handed 21 appearances in the PL2 and the EFL Trophy this season.
Daniel Ballard has been tipped to have a great Arsenal career with his knack for goalline clearances and bailing his goalkeepers out on a number of occasions.
However, the quality of the Northern Ireland u21 international is known, having helped his country with three clean sheets in four games this season at u21 level, as well as receiving a senior call-up.
Howbeit, he has been tipped to step into the shoes of other star players at the Emirates Stadium with his chance set to come in the nearest future.
Arsenal to let go of their star player this summer
There are fears that North London outfit Arsenal are ready to part ways with Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the coming summer transfer window and that could happen after the Europa League finals next week against Chelsea if reports are to be believed.
The Armenian midfielder has not been a major part of Unai Emery team as he has fallen down in the pecking order owing to his loss of form.
However, the former Man United Star will be missing the Europa League finals clash against Chelsea in Baku owing to the political crisis between his Armenian country and the people of Azerbaijan.

Arsenal told why they should sign this prolific EPL winger
North London outfit Arsenal have been told why they must secure the signature of Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners team have already lost Wales International Aaron Ramsey to Italian Serie A outfit Juventus while Danny Welbeck would be leaving as a free player in the summer which makes Ryan Fraser a good fit.
Ryan Fraser has impressed with his team and he is one of the reasons why Bournemouth was not relegated back to the Championship.
Suggestions are that he will be an upgrade to Alex Iwobi at the club in his performance and style while he could bring in the creativity to Unai Emery team.
However, Arsenal boss Unai Emery will look out to add strength to his team and the Bournemouth man remains an advantage.
Meanwhile, the North London outfit will only focus their attention on the Europa League finals as their hope of qualification to the Champions League.
