Sven Mislintat could leave Arsenal: The Gunners could have a major change in their head of recruitment position.
Arsenal are currently fifth in the Premier League. The side has had a few shaky weeks and faced a stunning defeat to West Ham last weekend.
Unai Emery’s side was 11 points ahead of Manchester United at the time of Solskjaer’s appointment, but a series of disappointing performances have brought Manchester United level with Arsenal. The Old Trafford outfit is yet to drop points under their Norwegian caretaker manager.
Emery stated in the press conference last week that Arsenal can’t sign players in this transfer window, which received backlash from Arsenal fans.
The situation has worsened after the head coach sidelined Mesut Ozil for the game against West Ham, despite the midfielder reportedly being fit for the game. And now, it has been reported that Sven Mislintat could leave the side.
Sven Mislintat could leave Arsenal:
Mislintat was brought at Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund. He played a major role in the signings of players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno, amongst others at Arsenal.
However, a report from Independent claims that Mislintat has not had a preferable relationship with Arsenal’s new regime – which includes the director of football, Raul Sanllehi.
Sven Mislintat could leave Arsenal as early as this month amidst interest from Bayern Munich.
The German could be on his way out due to the ‘unexpectedly active role’ Unai Emery has in transfers and targets.

Bayern Munich want Mislintat from Arsenal, and think they can get him

Unai Emery reportedly has a higher say in the transfers now, which has led to Mislintat eyeing a move away from the club.
Bayern Munich are said to be the favourites to poach Sven Mislintat from Arsenal.
Independent also reports that the head of recruitment brought to the table his list of players which could be considered for signings, but they weren’t followed up.
Bayern Munich have had a disappointing season in comparison to their own standards, as the side is six points behind Borussia Dortmund at second spot in the Bundesliga table.
Nah, this club is fucked. Mislintat is leaving under a year after he joined, and has been promoted?
If he’s fallen out with Emery, why is it Mislintat going? Wasn’t he meant to be the constant?
NOW THE EDU RUMOURS MAKE SENSE

With Arjen Robben leaving at the end of the season and a rapidly ageing squad, Bayern aim for a squad overhaul. After his brilliant work at Bayern’s arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund, the Bavarians are considering a move for Mislintat and hope to complete it before the end of the current season.
