There has been an unexpected twist in the Zeljko Buvac story.
According to Bosnian outlet Pravda BL, Jurgen Klopp's long-time number two is set to take over from Arsene Wenger as manager of Arsenal.
Pravda BL is said to be close to Buvac: it was the first to break news that Jurgen Klopp would be joining Liverpool.
On Sunday night, it was reported that Buvac - who has worked alongside Klopp of the past 17 years - would be leaving Liverpool. On Monday morning, Liverpool clarified that the Bosnian Serb would not be leaving the club but instead was stepping away from his role for personal reasons. It was added that the 56-year-old was still an employee of the club.
Buvac has been Jurgen Klopp's number two since the pair first went into management together with Mainz. They subsequently worked together successfully and Borussia Dortmund and then Liverpool.
If Buvac is appointed, it would continue the recruitment of personnel with connections to Borussia Dortmund. Sven Mislintat was appointed as the head of recruitment in November. Since then, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has arrived from the Bundesliga club as has Henrikh Mkhitaryan via Manchester United.
