Vinai Venkatesham new Arsenal MD after CEO Ivan Gazidis joins AC Milan

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis to join AC Milan

Gazidis played a key role in the recruitment of new boss Emery, who replaced long-serving former boss Arsene Wenger at the end of the 2017/18 season. Change and succession is not only inevitable for a club like Arsenal, it is necessary if it is continually to keep moving forward.

Sanllehi is now the head of football relations, and will become the head of football going forward, with Venkatesham moving from his chief commercial officer role to managing director.

"It has been a pleasure working with Ivan", he said.

The departure of Gazidis will see two changes at Arsenal.

Sanllehi joined Arsenal in February 2018 from Barcelona, taking on a role as head of transfer operations to work alongside Sven Mislintat, who was recruited from Borussia Dortmund to look at recruitment.

Arsenal offered him the role after Ivan Gazidis parted ways from the club to join former Champions League victor AC Milan.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis to join AC Milan

"After so many years at Major League Soccer and Arsenal, I am now looking forward to joining one of the world's other great clubs, AC Milan, and working to restore it to its rightful place in football".

He added: "Many would say it was a "strange time" for him to leave".

Kroenke has been a growing influence at the club, where he is a non-executive director and combines that role with posts within his father Stan's sports media empire, Kroenke Sports and Entertainment. Now, the Gunners - and the news surrounding his future - can move on.

AC Milan said in a statement: "In hiring Mr. Gazidis as CEO, AC Milan brings on board a world-class football executive with a track record of sporting and commercial success across the globe".

Sanllehi told the club website: "Although I joined Arsenal just months ago, I've felt embraced by this great club and part of its family from the first day".

Scaroni is expected to hand over all chief executive duties to Gazidis in December and soon the South African will take charge of handling the club's day-to-day football, business and commercial operations.
