The Gunners are searching for a technical director and reportedly turned attention to their former winger after missing out on Monchi, who opted to reunite with Sevilla following a spell at Roma.

The Gunners were heavily linked with bringing the Spaniard to the Emirates to fill their vacant technical director position following the departure of Sven Mislintat, who left his role as the club's head of recruitment last month.

But Sevilla announced his return as their sporting director at the weekend and, speaking at a news conference on Monday, he said: "I thank Arsenal for their interest". "It has been the club that..."

"I had other options, and very important ones that were flashier, but I've chosen Sevilla because its sporting project convinced me".

'I want to thank everyone that contributed to my return to what I consider to be my home'.

"I've evaluated all of this".

He told the Ajax website, "I'm having a good time here".

'My idea is to help Sevilla grow.

"We're going to think that the second part is better than the first, as Godfather II was better than Godfather I".

Sevilla president Jose Castro said: "Monchi is a special person".

Sevilla sacked Pablo Machin as coach on Friday after a run of three wins in 11 games left them five points adrift of La Liga's top four and out of the Europa League.
