Arsenal are looking for reinforcements ahead of the next season, especially in the defense, since underwhelming performances last season has propelled Arsenal to make transformations.

In a statement on Monday, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) confirmed director of football development Juninho - who played for the likes of Atletico Madrid and Middlesbrough - would replace Edu.

After hanging up his boots in 2012, Edu became director of football at Brazilian club Corinthians before joining the national team and helping them win their first Copa America title in 12 years on Sunday.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has limited transfer funds available this summer after missing out on the Champions League. Although he only made 79 Premier League appearances across those five campaigns, he was always a reliable central midfielder and kept the likes of Patrick Vieira on their toes.

The Spanish outlet says Arsenal are ready to pay £18m [€20m] to sign the 25-year-old but Diaz doesn't want to commit to anything until he speaks with Zidane to see if he's in his plans for next season.

Arsenal's head of football Raul Sanllehi feels Edu "understands the club" and will bring "great experience and technical football knowledge" to the club.

"It can be an unsettling period for any player and that is understandable but until a club comes up with any sort of realistic valuation of the player we don't have to do anything and we won't".

Edu was part of the club's "Invincibles" side which won the 2003-04 Premier League title without losing a match, having won the league two seasons prior. It is the first time the Gunners have employed someone in such a role. He was also responsible for youth football, but both Brazil's U-17 and U-20 teams failed to qualify for the World Cup in their respective age groups.
