Arsenal set to hire Premier League’s director of football Garlick | Football News





The Premier League’s director of football Richard Garlick is set to become Arsenal’s new director of football operations “in the coming months”, the club said on Thursday.
Garlick, a qualified solicitor, has been with the Premier League since 2018 and also held the position of West Bromwich Albion’s director of football for eight years.
“He will be a member of the Arsenal executive team and will be working closely with technical director Edu, manager Mikel Arteta and academy manager Per Mertesacker,” a club spokesman said.
“His responsibilities will include football operations in the first team and academy, all player contract management and relationships with football’s governing bodies.”
Garlick takes over a position that was vacated in November by Huss Fahmy, who was hired in 2017 and helped with contract negotiations for the club’s players as well as new recruits.
