Ivan Gazidis linked with shock AC Milan move, Arsenal fans react

Ivan Gazidis has been a divisive figure at Arsenal during his time as chief executive.

One of the businessman’s biggest tests came at the end of the season when Arsene Wenger walked away from his 22-year tenure as manager.

Gazidis led the way as he helped restructure the club’s hierarchy and transfer process.

Unai Emery was selected as Wenger’s successor in the Emirates hotseat, and funds have been available in the transfer kitty as the club have recruited five new players.

With the post-Wenger era seemingly running smoothly, it was a surprise when Corriere dello Sport reported earlier this week that AC Milan are keen to poach Gazidis.

Italian publication Il Giornale has since reported that the 53-year-old has rejected the chance to become part of the boardroom team at the San Siro.

The Serie A giants have recently experienced a shakeup as US hedge fund Elliott Management Corporation now own the club.

After the surprise news of Milan’s alleged interest in Gazidis, Arsenal fans posted their thoughts on Twitter.
