Latest report concerning Arsenal’s CEO position, through Evening Standard, claimed the club are in intense search for Gazidis replacement and they are considering Stan’s son.
Stan, who is the owner of the club, might see his son become the next CEO in 2019 as the club’s board members are reportedly looking at Josh Kroenke as the best man for the job.
